When it comes to your HVAC system, you might have a lot of questions, and it can be difficult to even know where to start looking for the answers. Luckily, the professionals at Hinton are here to help answer all of your difficult questions. Below are a few commonly asked HVAC questions and some simple answers.
What does HVAC stand for?
Simply put, HVAC (often pronounced “H-vack”) stands for “heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.” These services are often grouped together because they all deal with similar things: namely the heating, cooling, and movement of the air in your home. While these are the basic functions performed by your HVAC system, it can also be responsible for things like humidity, air pressure, and filtration.
How does my HVAC system move air through my house?
Most modern HVAC systems work similarly, circulating cool and warm air throughout your house and depositing cool or warm air outside using fans and radiators. While your system may be different in the particulars of how it moves air (for example, ducted and ductless systems work differently from one another), the basics of the system are going to be the same.
Why should I consider replacing a working HVAC system?
It’s admittedly hard to consider spending money on a new HVAC system when your current one is still working, but there are at least a few reasons to consider looking into it. If you’ve had your current system for 12 years or longer, an upgrade could do a lot of things for you. First, there have been advancements in the field that could make the new system more efficient than your current system. This could mean an overall reduction in utility bills, it could also mean a more comfortable home.
Do you have any suggestions for when we want to replace our HVAC system?
Make no mistake, replacing your HVAC system is a big decision. This is a system that you’re going to have to live with over the life expectancy of the system, which is generally 12 years. The most important decision when choosing a new system is not likely going to be the name brand or even the price, but rather who you hire to install it. We recommend that you make this decision based on quality, customer service, and ease of contact. After all, if they’re going to be providing service over the lifetime of the unit, don’t you want them easily reached and easy to work with?
