Your Most Common HVAC Questions – Finally Answered!

  • How Often Should I Change/Clean My Air Filter?

    The average home air conditioning company sees a lot of emergency service calls resulting from dirty air filters. To safeguard the performance, efficiency, and lifespan of your system, changing or cleaning your filter once a month is recommended – once every 3 months, at a minimum if you live in a home with no kids and no pets.

  • Where is My Air Filter?

    Most times it is located to the left or right side – or directly behind – your main air return grille.

  • How Can I Make My System More Energy Efficient?

    There are a number of ways to directly and indirectly optimize the efficiency of your HVAC system. Some of the most important include:

    • Regularly changing your air filter.
    • Enrolling in an HVAC service plan to ensure the regular attention, optimal care, and condition of your system.
    • Properly insulating and thoroughly sealing leaks in your home.
    • Installing shades or curtains in rooms exposed to extreme sunlight.
  • What’s the Best Thermostat Setting for Energy Savings?

    To save up to 15% on your energy bill, the U.S. Dept. of Energy suggests a setting of 68-degrees F for winter months, 75-degrees in the summer months. Settings should not be static, and should be adjusted while you’re sleeping and while you’re away from the home for maximum performance. Looking for an easy way to ensure top-notch performance? Today’s smart learning thermostats do the job for you!

  • How Often Should My System Be Professionally Serviced?

    To avoid the need for emergency heating and cooling repair services, you should have your HVAC system regularly serviced in the spring and the fall, before summer and winter temperature extremes put it to the test.

  • How Much Does a New HVAC System Cost?

    Because of differences in size (square footage), layout (single or multilevel), exposure, leakage, and other issues that affect HVAC sizing and cost, it is nearly impossible to put an exact price on a new HVAC system. Fortunately, you can get a free, no obligation quote from H&H for your specific setup.

  • What Size System Do I Need?

    See above.

  • What’s the Difference Between Ductless Air Conditioning vs Central Air?

    The typical central air conditioning system is ‘split’, with an outdoor unit and indoor unit, conditioning and distributing air via ductwork in your home’s attic or crawlspace. A ductless or ‘mini-split’ system is installed directly into the wall, with the indoor portion of the system connecting to the outdoor component via tubing. Each system has its own advantages and disadvantages, and it’s important to discuss these with a trusted heating and cooling professional before deciding which system is best for your home.
