HVAC: Frequently Asked Questions


HVAC: Frequently Asked QuestionsDuring summer heat waves and winter freezes, your HVAC system works hard to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. At River City Heating & Air, our technicians will make sure that your HVAC system is functioning flawlessly. Here's a look at some of the common questions about HVAC systems.

What size AC unit should I install?

Generally, one ton of AC will cool 400 to 600 square feet. However, your home's particular dimensions and features will affect this, so it's a good idea to have an HVAC technician come over to determine what type of unit will provide an ideal fit for your home.

Why should I install a programmable thermostat?

Modern programmable thermostats are not only more accurate than old mercury thermostats, they also allow you to easily establish an automatic heating/cooling schedule that syncs up with your family's daily routine. This makes it less likely that you'll end up heating or cooling a room when there's nobody around. In turn, this helps to keep your energy bills lower. When programmable thermostats are used efficiently, Energy Star estimates that they save homeowners around $180 per year.

How regularly should I get professional HVAC maintenance?

It's a good idea to get professional HVAC maintenance twice per year. This way you know your system will work efficiently before the temperature swings of summer and winter.

How often do HVAC filters need to be replaced?

During periods of heavy use, it's a good idea to replace disposable filters on a monthly basis. During periods of less use, you can go 90 days. When used often, reusable filters should be thoroughly cleaned each month.
