FAQ About HVAC Systems
We don’t expect you to be the HVAC expert, that is what we are here for! Below we have detailed a few commonly asked HVAC questions by homeowners.
How often should I have my unit serviced?
Your heating and cooling unit should be serviced twice a year, once in the spring and fall. Preventative maintenance ensures your system is ready for the upcoming season and can prevent breakdowns. Give us a call to make sure your holiday season and summer days are cozy and comfortable!
When should I replace my HVAC unit?
If you are experiencing a breakdown, you may wonder if you should replace or repair your unit. Below are signs you should consider replacement rather than repair.
- Age. Most systems last 10-15 years,
- Frequent Repairs. Older units can require frequent repairs, which can become costly.
- Rising Utility Bills. If your monthly bills have increased, your HVAC unit may be using more energy to operate.
- Repair Costs. If repair costs become high, a new unit could be the best investment to prevent future costs.
How often should I change my air filter?
Air filters in your home should be changed every 3 months. It is important to ensure your air filter is regularly changed to maintain good air quality and a healthy unit. If you have indoor animals, pet dander could require you to change your filter more frequently.
Does adjusting my thermostat save money on energy bills?
Adjusting your thermostat setting while away or at night can help save money on your monthly bills. The best thermostat setting for summer in Cowpens is 78 degrees. For winter, the best temperature is 68 degrees. The closer your thermostat setting is to the outdoor temperature, the more you will save on cooling costs. However, don’t completely sacrifice your comfort. Utilize your ceiling fans!
What HVAC maintenance can I do myself?
While you should leave the repairs to the professionals, there are a few tasks homeowners can do to increase efficiency. Below we have listed maintenance homeowners can do for their HVAC unit.
- Clean outdoor unit
- Regularly change air filter
- Schedule preventative maintenance
- Open air vents
- Adjust thermostat settings
