  • FAQ

    • Why Should I Schedule an Annual HVAC Maintenance Checkup?

      An annual maintenance appointment for your HVAC system will save you a lot of money on your electric bill, as well as extend the life of your AC unit. You’ll also avoid the inconvenience and high cost of any HVAC emergencies. You won’t regret setting this up, and an expert technician will be at your beck and call for any future problems.

    • Why Isn’t My HVAC Fan Working Inside?

      If you have an indoor HVAC fan and it’s not working, you should first inspect your breakers and see if one is tripped. If that’s not the case, next look at the air filter. A blockage can possibly be the cause, and you might be able to take care of that on your own. You can also look for any ice on your refrigerant line or the evaporator coil. If you find ice, wait for it to melt, and then look again and find out if your fan will work. If it’s not running, your coil might be frozen. You can’t fix this type of issue by yourself and should call a technician, who will likely have to put new contacts inside the fan belt or fan relay. It’s also possible that the motor is bad and will need to be replaced.

    • Why Is My HVAC System Not Coming On?

      If your HVAC system is not coming on, perhaps it is something as simple as a need to change the temperature on your thermostat. Alternatively, the issue may be due to a tripped breaker or blown fuse. If none of these are the source of the problem, you should call our HVAC technicians for an inspection. It is likely that the unit needs to be repaired or replaced.

    • Why Won’t My HVAC System Turn Off?

      If your HVAC system remains turned on for a longer period than normal, the filter could be dirty. Replace or clean the filter to see if that fixes the problem. If you have the wrong size HVAC system or it’s an old unit, it may have to work harder, cycle on and off more, and have a hard time turning off. Additional issues that could make an HVAC system run all the time include a stuck relay fan, a thermostat cable with a short in it, or a faulty thermostat.

    • How Long Do Furnaces Usually Last?

      Most furnaces that are well-maintained last at least 15 years. Proper installation, routine maintenance, and timely repairs are the most important components in extending the life of your furnace. If your furnace is over 15 years old and exhibiting signs of failure, call us for a professional inspection. We can advise you on whether repair or replacement would be the most cost-effective option.

    • How Often Should I Replace My Furnace Filter?

      Furnace filters don’t stay clean forever — in fact, they can get clogged with dust and debris fairly quickly, especially if you use your furnace frequently. You should check the condition of your disposable filter every month and replace it every three months. While washable filters don’t need to be replaced, you should check and clean them just as frequently. Cleaning and replacing filters are essential maintenance tasks that will keep your furnace working smoothly and efficiently for longer.

    • Why Does My AC Have Water Leaking on the Outside?

      If it’s a humid or hot day, you may notice a tiny water puddle underneath the condenser unit. This is a normal occurrence, as long as this only happens when the AC is turned on and running. If the weather’s cooler (around 60 degrees or lower), an AC unit can freeze up. Thus, it will leak some water as ice melts — but this is normal too.


      However, leaks could be due to a dirty air filter. It’s also possible that the refrigerant needs topping off, your condensation plate is broken, or the drainpipe is blocked. If you’re unsure of what the problem is, contact our team for a professional inspection today.

    • What Should I Do About Water Leaking from the Inside of My AC?

      If you see any water leaking from the inside of your air conditioner, you should immediately turn it off to avoid water damage. The condensation drain line could be blocked, which would make water back up and leak into the house. The issue may also be due to a rusted drain pan or a broken pump. One of our technicians can fix or replace any parts that are damaged or get you a new pump.

    • Why Isn’t My Air Conditioner Cooling My Home?

      If your AC is not able to cool your home, it could be due to a refrigerant line leak. Alternatively, your system may have been improperly installed or has reached the end of its lifespan. You may also have an AC that is not sized correctly for your home. If the AC is too small, it has to work a lot harder to cool down the house, which can cause it to breakdown prematurely. On the other hand, if your system is too big, it will have reduced efficiency due to the unit cycling off and on too fast.

    • Why Isn’t My Air Conditioner Blowing Any Cold Air?

      If your air conditioning system comes on but does not blow any cool air out of the vents, first check to see if all your vents are open and that the thermostat is on the right temperature. If neither of these issues are the cause of the problem, your air filter could be clogged up with dirt, dust, or additional kinds of debris. If so, no air can get through. Additionally, a clog could make your evaporator coils freeze up, and the resulting frost and ice can restrict air flow. Air filters should be cleaned or changed often to avoid these types of problems.

      It’s also possible that the fan or the fan’s motor has gone bad. If your fan can be turned easily, it could be that the electricity isn’t getting to your fan motor. Another possibility is that the refrigerant line is leaking. If any of these issues are present, you will likely have to hire a certified HVAC technician to inspect your air conditioning unit.
