FRequently asked questions


Below are some common questions that may give you the answer you are looking for. We would like to assist you in any way we can. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to call.
What is the SEER Rating of an HVAC system?
The SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) measures air conditioning and heat pump efficiency. The SEER is calculated by the cooling output for a typical cooling season divided by the total electric energy input during the same time frame. The higher the SEER, the greater efficiency level of a cooling system.
What is a good SEER rating for an air conditioner?
The higher the SEER rating means greater energy efficiency. While the minimum standard SEER rating is 13 for air conditioners, most modern air conditioners have a SEER as high as 21. However, do remember that the efficiency of your system also depends on the size of your home, current ductwork and other variables..
Is regular HVAC maintenance necessary?
Absolutely. We ask a lot from our heating and cooling systems, which in return operate at a remarkable pace to ensure comfortability at home. Repeated starting, stopping and general performance will likely welcome general wear-and-tear. Scheduled preventative maintenance in the spring and fall is the most effective way to catch any leaks, corroded electrical contacts, rusty vents or frayed wires. Regular HVAC maintenance is the best way to guarantee that your systems are running correct and efficiently.
What is the difference between evaporative cooling and refrigerated cooling?
They way that they cool air. Evaporative units cool air bypassing warm air through water. Refrigerated air conditioning pushes hot air outof a house, while bringing the cooler into the house, then further cooling itusing refrigerants.
