It’s important to schedule routine maintenance so your cooling and heating systems continue running smoothly, especially during extreme weather. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to get the most out of your appointment. A trained HVAC technician understands the function of HVAC components and their mechanisms, and won’t mind answering any questions you may have.
Here are some questions to bring up during a routine service call:
“How can I improve my indoor air quality?”
Many HVAC companies offer simple as well as complex solutions that can significantly improve indoor air quality. An essential practice that many technicians do during maintenance checks is duct cleaning. You may also choose to install an air purifier or dehumidifier unit. This is beneficial to family members who suffer from allergies and asthma. Make sure to get a recommendation on which air filters are the most efficient and can most effectively trap air pollutants and allergens.
“How do I choose a new air conditioner?”
If you need a unit upgrade for your air conditioning unit, ask the technician for suggestions to narrow down your options. People residing in a relatively temperate climate may find heat pump systems the most useful. A heat pump is an efficient heating machine that also acts as a central air conditioner during hot, humid summers, providing your living space a source of year-round comfort.
“What temperature should I set my thermostat to?”
You’ll need the advice of an expert to determine what temperature range offers the most comfort for each season, from the sweltering heat of summer to the frosty chill of winter. However, during transitional seasons, you may need to open some windows to create better airflow around your home. This increases the energy efficiency of your space and helps reduce your utility bills at the same time.
