Q. What does HVAC stand for?
Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning.
Q. What regular maintenance do heating and air conditioning systems need?
The most important part of HVAC maintenance aspect is maintaining unrestricted air flows. Dust, dirt, and debris are an HVAC system’s worst enemies. Whether it’s an indoor or outdoor unit, you must keep all filters clean and heat exchangers and coils free of restrictions.
The Manufacturer and Bob’s recommend that your Heating and Cooling system be checked and serviced twice a year; ideally a Spring and Fall tune-up. Also, we recommend that you change your filter regularly, depending on the type of filter you have. This alone can eliminate many of the most common problems that need fixing and can significantly reduce the likelihood of a serious breakdown.
Q. Why do I need to change my filter regularly?
Regular filter replacement helps your heating and cooling system operate at peak levels and improves indoor air quality. It is important to change filters regularly to ensure proper air flow and to keep your home free from dust, allergens and germs.
Q. How often should I replace my filters?
In general you should replace your disposable filters at least every 2-3 months.
Q. In addition to changing my filters, what maintenance should I do on my heater and/or air conditioner?
Most maintenance should be performed only by a qualified service technician. But here are some things that you can do to assure optimal performance:
Q. How often should I have maintenance done on my air conditioner?
You should have maintenance done on your air conditioning system at least once a year – spring to early summer being the best times. This not only ensures maximum efficiency, it enables us to foresee any possible problems that may occur in the near future.
Q. How do I know if my system is working properly?
Is it making strange noises? Is it cooling or heating all areas of your home sufficiently? Has it been taking longer to cool down or heat up? Have your utility bills been rising for no apparent reason? Any of these are signs that you may have a problem that needs service. In most cases, the longer you delay, the worse any underlying problems will get.
Q. Should I close the registers and doors to areas of the home that I do not use on a regular basis?
No. Every system is designed to cool a certain number of square feet. By closing registers and doors in certain rooms, you disrupt and decrease the systems’ airflow and efficiency. Your system will have to work harder to cool less space, making it cycle more and become less efficient.
Q. What are the advantages of a programmable thermostat?
Programmable thermostats are more accurate and efficient than thermostats that contain mercury. Plus, they allow you to automatically control the temperature in your home at different times of day without ever touching your thermostat.
Q. Indoor Air Quality
Improve the indoor health and quality of your air:
Q. Do electronic air cleaners really work?
Electronic air cleaners can greatly improve home air quality and comfort levels. Especially if you have allergies or pets.
Q. What are the potential dangers of operating your HVAC system with a cracked heat exchanger?
If a crack in the heat exchanger allows carbon monoxide to escape into your home you may experience dizziness, light-headedness, flu-like symptoms, or even death by asphyxiation. This is an extremely dangerous situation to have in the home.
Q. Should I be concerned about carbon monoxide in my home?
Very concerned Carbon monoxide (CO) is a gas produced during the combustion of fuels. It’s colorless, odorless, tasteless…and can be lethal. Cracks, leaks, obstructions and other malfunctions in your heating system can cause carbon monoxide to develop and accumulate. Ask us about installing a carbon monoxide detector for your family’s safety.
Q. Why is it important to have a Preferred Customer Preventative Maintenance Agreeement?
It is a great way of protecting you in the event of sudden breakdowns in equipment and is your guarantee that you’ll receive regularly scheduled maintenance. With a Preferred Customer Agreement you will receive priority service for your heating and air conditioning calls, 10% discount on any parts. Preferential emergency service scheduling.

How does it work?
Mini-splits are heating and cooling systems that allow you to control the temperatures in individual rooms or spaces. Mini-split systems have two main components -- an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit(s) (evaporator). They are easy to install usually requiring only a three-inch hole through a wall for the conduit; which houses the power and communication cables, copper tubing, and a condensation drain line, linking the outdoor and indoor units.
Mini-split heat pumps are not only great solutions for whole home or new constructions but make good retrofit add-ons to houses with “non-ducted” heating systems, such as hydronic (hot water heat), radiant panels, and space heaters (wood, kerosene, propane). They can also be a good choice for room additions where extending or installing distribution ductwork is not feasible, and energy efficient new homes that require only a small space conditioning system.

With colder temperatures comes dryness, chapped skin, static electricity and sinus discomfort. Dry air in your home or office is just plain uncomfortable. With a quality Humidification Product your family can enjoy improved comfort and better health. The combination of dry air and artificial heat can cause severe problems for allergy and asthma sufferers. Dry nasal passages are painful and can lead to sinusitis. Dry skin and throats can amplify existing allergy symptoms and asthma sufferers can experience breathing difficulties when air lacks moisture. Dry winter air can also make your home feel cooler than it actually is. By introducing moisture into the air, a humidifier can make your home feel more comfortable at a lower temperature, making your furnace more efficient and lowering your utility bills.
We offer top-quality home humidification systems. Call to schedule an appointment for a free quote.
