We invite you to call us at any sign of a problem with your home heating or cooling systems or your commercial units. We will be happy to answer all your questions on furnace installations and help you decide if you need a repair or replacement. 

Below are answers to some frequently asked questions related to residential and commercial installations, repair, and service:  

What are heating and cooling matched systems?

Heating and cooling matched systems allow enhanced comfort and efficiency, less costs, less noise, proper cycle times and controlled humidity. We are experts in furnace repair for both older and very modern, high efficiency furnace systems.

With a furnace installation, what is the AFUE furnace rating?

The federal government requires all air conditioning and heating equipment to be rated for efficiency. The higher the rating, the more efficient the model. Gas furnaces are rated for AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency). 

Why choose units with variable speed fans when it comes to a furnace installation?

Units with variable speed fans deliver more or less warm or cool air to your home, and keep your family comfortable in the hottest days or coldest nights. They usually operate at lower speeds, but in extreme conditions the fan speed increases to meet the demand. It is recommended that your new furnace replacement be of variable speed.

What info should I read or review with my contractor or supplier, before deciding on my new furnace installation?

First, it is important to establish if a furnace repair is all you need.  However if the decision is made for furnace replacement, it is helpful to review pictures, features, capacities, dimensions, ratings, and warranty information, so that you can make an informed decision on your modern furnace installation. 

What is a load calculation for a new furnace install?

Professionals use load calculations to size your system based on square footage, age of the home, insulation, number of windows, and year-round weather concerns. A correctly sized system (not over-sized not under-sized) will save you money, and will deliver long-lasting, reliable comfort whatever the season.  

How many types of gas furnaces are there?

On the market are currently single-stage, 2-Stage, and variable-speed gas furnaces. The 2 stage variable speed furnaces provide greater humidity control, quieter operation, and maximum air circulation, temperature distribution, and air filtration. So if a furnace repair is too costly, you may want to consider a furnace replacement with a modern 2 stage variable speed furnace.

Where is my air filter located?

Your air filter should be located in either the blower compartment of the furnace, in an attached filter case, or in a return air grille in a wall of your home. If you cannot find the air filter, please contact us for assistance. 

When do I need preventative maintenance on my furnace installation?

Preventative maintenance should be done before the winter heating season. We offer maintenance service agreements that may include reduced rates on labor and parts and provide priority response. 

What is the average life expectancy for heating equipment?

The average expected life of a heat pump is approximately 10 to 12 years, since it operates year round. The average expected life of a gas furnace or air handler may be longer. With good maintenance and professional furnace repair, you can add many years to the useful life of your furnace installation. Units in coastal environments have shorter lives and a furnace replacement should be planned for more frequently.

How clean is indoor air?

Houses can have a lot of pollutants inside, and the irritating particles trapped in the air can trigger allergies, asthma and other health problems. Such particulate matter can be dust, animal hair and dander, mold spores, smoke, bacteria, pollen , dust mites, lint, and cooking grease. All these can affect your family’s health or comfort and need to be improved with whole house air cleaning and filtration systems.

How to control the humidity in my house?

Excessive humidity can be controlled with variable-speed air-handling equipment which runs at very low speeds, and keeps the air circulating against the cooling coil and removing much more moisture than conventional systems. At these low speeds, the variable-speed motor also uses much less electricity than conventional motors.

How to choose a furnace installation contractor?

What HVAC contractor you will choose depends on the project, whether it’s a major furnace repair or furnace replacement, renovation, new construction furnace installation, an emergency or a minor service call. Referrals from friends, relatives or neighbors are a good starting point. Also of help could be local online and printed advertisements.
