5 Tips Homeowners Should Understand About Heating & Cooling

Understanding some things about Prescott Heating and Cooling by Prescott Air Conditioning and Heating RepairBeing a homeowner involves learning about the characteristics of your property. Between moving in, getting settled, and living at your home for a long time, it can be simple to overlook one of your home’s most important features - the HVAC system. Even though it has seemed to run well since you purchased your home, the entire system requires routine maintenance. With proper care of your heating and cooling system for as long as you're in your home, you’ll be sure it runs efficiently and reliably, and get a better idea of potential costs that may arise in the future. After all, you wouldn't drive your car season after season with out having routine maintenance performed-right? Your HVAC system needs the similar attention.

 

Prescott Air Conditioning and Heating Repair brings you these 5 Tips Homeowners Should  Understand About Heating & Cooling.

 

1. Know the what type of AC system you have:

Not all HVAC systems are the same. There are different types of equipment that heat and cool residences. For example, an HVAC system may have an air conditioner and gas furnace, a package unit (on the roof or the ground outside) or a split system (with a condenser outside and the gas furnace in the attic, a closet or the garage); or, even an all electric heat pump. If you're not sure which type of heating and cooling system is in your home, now is the perfect time to learn more about it. When you have Rich & Brenda out for HVAC Repair or Maintenance, they will be happy to answer any questions you may have. 

Find out the system’s age to get an idea about when it may need a replacement. Typically, heat pumps and central air conditioners last on average 14 years. (Rich says he has seen many go over 20 years and beyond. His idea here is not to sell you a new unit; but, to "eek" out as many years as possible before having to replace your equipment). Gas Furnaces last between 15 and 25 years.

Bi-annual HVAC maintenance and inspections prevent unnecessary wear and tear. If you can, get copies of past inspection reports to learn about problems that you might encounter in the future. These reports are also good to keep on hand for possible system’s warranty.

 

2. Replace the air Filters:

Once you locate where the filters are, changing them is as simple as pulling out the old ones and sliding in the new ones. Be sure not to use restrictive type filters as they greatly reduce system performance and create potential catastrophic mechanical failure. (More on that in a future article). Before installing the new filters, write the date for future reference. There is no set time period for filter replacement as all homes air flow are different. It is a good idea to inspect them monthly-a little dusty? No big deal. Becoming restrictive-very bad! Change 'em.

 

3. Schedule a Prescott Air Conditioning & Heating Maintenance and Inspection

DO NOT WAIT until the HVAC system has a problem to call Rich. This could backfire on you because you can find yourself without heat during the coldest time of winter. Whether your home is brand new or has many years under it's belt, hire Rich, an HVAC professional to inspect and maintain the system ASAP. He will alert you to small problems that could become  very expensive repairs if they aren’t corrected. He can explain more information about the system (ie, the type, condition and age), and give you maintenance tips you can throughout the year to keep the unit running efficiently. Schedule professional HVAC maintenance and inspection before winter and before summer every year to prolong the life of your heating and cooling equipment and prevent the need for costly repairs.

 

4. Get the information about the Warranty:

Get the warranty info that came with the heating and cooling system in your home. Is there still warranty? How old is it? Prescott Air Conditioning can help to answer these questions for you.  

 

5. Understand the Thermostat for Maximum Efficiency:

A programmable thermostat helps your system operate more efficiently. Learn the advantage of its settings to save energy and make your home comfortable when it’s occupied and not run so much when it is not or you are sleeping. Most people don't take the time for this; but really, it'll only take 10 or 15 minutes and could save you lots of money-not to mention wear & tear on your equipment. Rich, an HVAC specialist can show you how to operate your stat and make suggestions regarding the best temperatures settings to use.

 

Owning a home comes with as many perks as it does challenges. Make care of your AC & Heating system simpler. Have it serviced before winter and before summer. This is the best idea to avoid high repair costs and ensure continued comfort during those extreme seasonal conditions. Protect your equipment and keep energy bills lower by scheduling an inspection and tune-up with Rich & Brenda, specialists from Prescott Air Conditioning & Heating. Rich is the leading expert at tuning your HVAC system for optimal performance and reliability. They will help with your comfort needs.

5 out of 5 stars Rich and Brenda showed up within an hour of us contacting them, assessed the problem with our furnace, had the broken part on hand (!!! It's a 26 year old furnace!!!). They were extremely friendly, professional, explanatory and obviously care about the work they do. We had quite a few problems, and the 2 other HVAC folks said "just replace the thing" and took a service fee. While Rich tended to agree that it needs replacing, he made sure he got the unit working, inspected and was confident in its safety as a stop gap. Could not recommend them more. It's quite rare to get such thorough, professional.
