Q: What kind of maintenance does my HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) require?
A: Most importantly, especially living in the Vegas desert is to ensure there is no restricted airflow. That means keeping on top of the air filters, we recommend checking on them every month and cleaning or changing them accordingly, but never allow more than three months to exceed. Keep the coils free of dust, dirt and debris. At bare minimum, invest in an NY NJ A/C Connection annual maintenance to ensure the filth accumulation is clean, air conditioning unit and heating unit are properly cared for as well.
Q: What is the lifespan of an HVAC system?
A: Depending on how well you care for the unit, if you are diligent in acquiring professional maintenance, and if you have invested in a more durable and well conditioned system. The A/C unit can last anywhere from 12-15 years and the furnace 20-25 years, and the other components can last anywhere from 10-25 years.
Q: What is an HVAC Zoning System?
A: The zoning system is designed to more efficiently heat or cool individual sections of your home by treating the air accordingly to how your preferences are set and can be accomplished by a few different methods.
Q: What circumstances are considered when replacing the HVAC system?
A: If your HVAC system is over 12 years old, has had excessive repairs in the last two years, and is consistently operating inefficiently or it is not energy sufficient. In recent decades most of the HVAC system’s equipment has evolved to be far more energy efficient saving you money on operating costs. If your system is experiencing wear and tear causing repair after repair, it is in you better interest to put that money into a new system as eventually, your system will be irreparable.
Q: What should I know when replacing my HVAC system?
A: Know the SEER rating of the A/C unit, the larger the number the better the efficiency is. Understand that systems are not a one size fits all and there is a mathematical equation that is used to determine what size is needed. The air ducts need to be properly designed and fitted for optimal delivery and airflow. At NY NJ A/C Connection we can assist you in getting a HVAC system replacement.
