Over the years, Diamond Heating and Cooling has answered many questions from homeowners regarding HVAC systems. Helping them learn more about their HVAC system and how to keep it running well is something Diamond’s technicians strive to do. Here are five of the most common questions homeowners have and the answers to them:
- What size of system do I need?
The answer to this question depends on factors like the size of the home. A system that’s too big or too small can increase energy bills, and decrease the lifetime of the system. Having Diamond Heating and Cooling measure the home to determine the proper HVAC system will ensure the perfect fit.
- How can I increase efficiency?
To keep an HVAC system running at peak efficiency, homeowners should replace the filter regularly and schedule annual maintenance with Diamond Heating and Cooling. The filter can have a huge impact on how well the HVAC system runs and maintenance catches any potential problems.
- How often should an HVAC system be serviced?
At Diamond Heating and Cooling, we recommended having the system serviced twice a year. The furnace should be serviced in the fall before cold weather hits and the air conditioner should be serviced in the spring. Seasons can be harsh in Boise and throughout the Treasure Valley, which can put a strain on the system, so twice a year maintenance is encouraged.
- How often should the filter be changed?
At the very least, the filter needs to be changed every three months. During the months when it works harder, like the middle of summer or winter, changing it every month might be needed.
- How much does HVAC replacement cost?
Again, no two houses are the same, which means system replacement costs will differ. Diamond Heating and Cooling offers many brands of HVAC systems at a straightforward price.
