Hiring an HVAC service

The awkward-to-pronounce acronym stands for "heating, ventilation and air conditioning" which in many respects are completely different processes.

HVAC Maintenance

You can help your home's heating and cooling systems work more efficiently and last longer by tending to regular maintenance. Some tasks, such as changing the furnace filter, can easily be done by the homeowner.

air conditioner beside brick house

Even a new air conditioner needs annual maintenance and inspection to spot problems covered by warranties before they become expensive A/C repairs later.

An HVAC warranty usually only transfers if you take the proper steps when you buy a house.

Controlling humidity in your home is vital to good overall health and protecting your home and possessions.

what should you pay.  You pay what you can afford.  1100sqft unit requires a min. of a two ton unit.  prices range from 2100-2900 depending upon the seers of the system.  13 seer is the min. the law requires  and for your situation with 1100 sqft.  do not worry about the seers as long as it is to code.  the bigger the house the more seers for economy.  1100 sqft is at the border line for a two ton system.  It is more important to have your new system balance, there is where you get the economy on your electric bill and gas.  Bryant, lenox, ruud and carrier are the brands you should stay with.All have the same basic factory warrantee and will last you longer than you expect as long as you maintain it with regular check ups twice a year once in the spring and then in the fall.

APRStore.com offers a nice sizing chart for HVAC capacitors and furnace capacitors. Most of the capacitors I've looked at are $5 to $15 dollars, so a little less than Home Depot and Lowes.

 

Replacement is really easy, but be sure to watch a youtube video on how to replace it like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IpydZIsOJg

 

Stay safe and hire a professional if you feel unsure about doing it yourself!

The only thing of importance, is the hvac professional you choose to use. Alot of manufacturer's pieces are built relatively the same, and will last about the same amount of time. The thing that matters most is what you can not compare between companies, and that is the installation. Purchasing a system is not like purchasing a car, where no matter where you buy it, they are all the same. Each installation is different, and usually what you are paying for is the level of expertise, and quality of the installation, the company who will actual give you the warranty, and the comfort that you will receive. Manufacturers warranties disappear every day. They always have a loophole where they can get out of paying, but your local dealer wants to keep you happy for future work, and to protect his reputation in the communiy. Look up 4 year old Nordyne and Goodman warranty problems. Choose the HVAC professional first. It will cost you the least in the long run. I have had to totally redo plenty of installations that were just performed because of an uncomfortable customer, and a system that keeps breaking down. The equipment is only as good as it's installation, and over 70% are not installed correctly.

I think maybe you are confusing SEER, which is an efficiency-related rating (higher SEER means more effective use of the electric power used to compress the gas), and TONS rating, which is a measure of the total cooling power of the system. (Tons used to mean how many tons per hour of ice was used in evaporative cooling building systems - a Refrigeration or Cooling Ton equals 12,000 Btu/Hour of energy exchange. A BTU, which is another antique measure but still used, is the energy needed to change the temperature of a pound of water one degree fahrenheit. Unfortunately, because of varying humidity and evaporation, this is not readily related to house air heating or cooling without a lot of assumptions and some computations. Relating this to today's world - the Manuals BayAreaAc referred to account for all these energy conversions and determine an estimated cooling (or heating) requirement for your specific house. The type of construction, solar exposure, general climatic conditions such as average temperatures, humidity, and hottest and coldest normal ambient temperatures and desired inside temperture are all taken into account in the more sophisticated versions of the analysis, so there is no "standard", though a rough old rule of thumb was about 1 ton of cooling per 500SF of house. Obviously, this was a WAG only because it did not account for insulation, type of roofing, whether you live in Alaska or Miami, etc. The ACCA manuals do a very simplified form of evaluation to arrive at a "design", which generally will be adequate. OF course, highly precise calculations are not really needed because A/C units generally come in even ton ratings - so if you are at say 2.6 ton requirement you will be getting a 3-ton unit anyway. SEER ratings are not a direct measure of efficiency, but the relative difference between ratings gives you good idea of the unit's relative efficency in using electricity - so a 16 SEER should be about 19% more efficient (so roughly comparable lower electricity bill) than a comparably sized 13 SEER unit. 13 SEER is the lowest efficiency currently allowed to be built for general use, 19 SEER is about the highest efficiency made by pretty much all manufacturers, and about 25 SEER is the highest rated though very pricey shelf-item units, though special construction custom units can reach about 30 SEER. Note however, like any government sponsored rating, much of it is hooey when you get down to it - for instance, SEER ratings are figured based on 80 degree inside air temp and 82 degrees outside, when that is far from the normal case of mid to low seventies inside and high eighties or above outdoors. This makes the absolute SEER rating meaningless, but relative numbers still have meaning in comparing units. Note these efficiency ratings are for conventional air conditoners and heat pumps working in ambient air conditions. Ground sourced Geothermal or lake/river exchange cooling units, though initially more expensive in most cases, can greatly exceed the air-exchange unit efficiencies because they are exchanging heat with cold natural water rather than with a high-temperature outside air, and instead of continually compressing a gas are just circulating cold water. I worked on one geothermal cooling project which had almost infinite efficiency, which of course makes no sense - but the only power was for sensors and a control valve as the water flow was single-pass under gravity flow, so no power was used to circulate the water.

Yes Jupiter. It depends on the severity of the situation, is the mold encapsulated in the insulation. If yes, than replace [insulation] it with new. Is it on the casing of the heater? If yes, clean it with a mold neutralizing metal cleaner. It's not a matter of finding something or someone to clean or address the existing mold. It's a matter of finding a contractor to rectify what is causing the mold grow. It's coming from excessive moisture in the air-handler unit. I can say with 100% surety you’re dealing with poor airflow and/or incorrect equipment sizing! Either issue will cause excessive icing of the evaporator coil, which leads to excessive condensate water in the system. The condensate will eventually overflow the drain pan leaving stagnant water in the air-handler housing, which leads to mold growth. I would not let any contractor do any kind of temporary repair, add any device like a UV light or air-cleaning product until the aforementioned is corrected. I talk a lot about this in my videos and on my website. It is the result of improper system design from unqualified contractors. There is a reason why some guys cost more than others, and this is one reason why!




?
I'd rate them equal,or close,as with several other brands. I'd be more concerned about the difference in installation and service down the road. Difficult to determine the difference ,but asking for detailed info about their installation,may convince you to choose one over the other.

The Dept. of Energy states that poor installations can cause a 30% efficiency loss! Plus with Gas their are saftey issues,venting properly etc.,and of couse the need for a "low Level" Carbon Monoxide Alarm.

and cooling sells a maintenance package where they come out and do a winter and spring check on your furnace and a/c unit. However, what they don't tell you is that they only provide these services M-F during working hours when everyone like myself is as work. Even though they have technicians available/working on the ...More weekends, they REFUSED to schedule the maintenance during a weekend time frame. So, when I called the dispatcher they were rude as per usual - stating that I am merely a tenant of the property. They don't have a clue that I also own several other properties and would never again use their services. They just sell these maintenance packages to generate income and then "get to them" whenever it is convenient for them. IE care less about their customers.

Joined the stars program to get a regular maintenance on central that never had an issue. After they came out it immediately stopped working. I contacted them and told them how important it was to be fixed because my children have asthma and allergies. They did not care and told me that they could not do anything about it except by a whole new unit ...More which cost thousands of dollars. I felt taken advantage of. They are complete rip offs and tried forcing me into spending thousands. Now I'm left with no central air for my kids because I can't afford it.

We have used 's services since the late '80s-early '90s and they have always delivered on their promise of great service and quality work. This time was no exception. Our old furnace was about worn out so we decided to replace it with a new high-efficiency Carrier model. The whole process was painless (if paying ...More thousands of dollars for a new furnace can be called painless). was friendly, thorough and knowledgeable in preparing an estimate. He went through the process step-by-step and answered all my questions. and Raid did a great job with the installation. Both were detail oriented and went out of their way to get everything just right. The new furnace works great and we recommend to anyone in need of heating or cooling help.

I called after waiting all day for the plumber. (Maybe " " is when they expect me to wait around.) The receptionist told me that the plumber arrived at my house a little early. She claims that the plumber called and left a message. I checked my phone and told her that I did not have any missed ...More messages and asked her when the plumber arrived. She said that she did not have any information on that. I told her that I was home from 10:30am so if he arrived any time after that I would have heard if he rang the doorbell. If he came before 10:30, then what's the point of scheduling for 12-3pm? What's the point of having a schedule at all?
I'll be asking Angie's List for a refund because this provider obviously doesn't care about their customers. They don't bother to keep their schedule and don't bother to contact them. Thanks for wasting my time.

The young man was very polite. However, his equipment was falling apart (reminded me of the duct tape kitchen repair ad on TV) and the hose was only able to reach about 20 feet if or when it could go around an elbow. I estimate he was able to reach and clean less than 50% of the ductwork. I called the owner of . to offer polite ...More feedback. He seemed to be quite the grump and had numerous excuses. At the end of the conversation he offered 'Well, ok thanks." in a much less than appreciative . In my opinion he did not care.
