  • Q:How long can I put off repairs?

    A:We understand that people often put off calling a professional out of concern about the cost of the repair. However, it is important to understand that problems usually start off small but can quickly become more serious and expensive if they are not fixed. For this reason, we recommend contacting us as soon as you notice a problem, so our Mandeville heating and AC professionals can solve the issue before it becomes bigger and more complicated. Prompt repairs and regular maintenance almost always save money in the long run.

  • Q:When should I replace my heating and air conditioning systems?

    A:The answer to this question depends on several factors, including the age and condition of your equipment. As heating and air conditioning systems age, they lose efficiency, become more susceptible to breakdowns, and cost more to operate. If your system is more than 10 or 15 years old, breaks down often, or needs an expensive repair, it may be time for replacement.

  • Q:Does the size of the AC system really matter?

    A:Yes, choosing an air conditioning unit that is properly sized and has the right capacity for the needs of your home is extremely important for efficiency and performance. A system that is too small won’t sufficiently cool your home, and an air conditioner that is larger than you need will cycle frequently, which reduces performance and increases operating costs. Our comfort specialists can help you find a system that is the right size for your home cooling needs.

  • Q:How can I compare air conditioning systems for energy efficiency?

    A:When comparing air conditioning equipment, you will notice a SEER rating. Energy efficiency is measured by the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or SEER. This is a ratio of the cooling output over the season divided by the energy used to power the system. A higher SEER rating will provide more comfort for your money.

  • Q:What can I do to increase energy efficiency?

    A:There are steps you can take to improve energy efficiency and keep your home cool throughout the summer. One important thing to do is schedule preventative maintenance service with a qualified professional. Regular maintenance helps to: 

    - Prevent sudden equipment breakdown Improve energy efficiency 
    - Reduce home heating and cooling costs 
    - Maximize performance Extend equipment life Improve indoor air quality 
    In addition to professional maintenance service, there are steps you can take to improve efficiency and performance. One of the most important things to do is to change your filters regularly. When the filters become clogged, efficiency decreases and your system has to work harder to warm or cool your home.

  • Q:What does a maintenance visit include?

    A:Our NATE certified technicians provide a thorough inspection of all components of your heating or air conditioning unit during maintenance visits. We clean and tune up components of the system as needed to ensure optimal performance. In some situations, we may notice a small problem and can fix it so you can avoid larger repairs or a complete system breakdown later.

  • Q:How often should maintenance be performed on heating and AC equipment?

    A:We recommend scheduling maintenance for your heating and air conditioning system twice a year, in the spring and the fall. This helps ensure that your home is comfortable and energy efficient every season.
