In San Angelo, TX, it can get hot in the summer and dip down into frigid temperatures in the winter. Your HVAC system helps to keep the inside of your home or business comfortable throughout the year and despite the outdoor temperature. It works hard to do its job and needs regular servicing to ensure that it operates optimally. All HVAC repairs and maintenance should be performed by a licensed HVAC contractor. As contractors, we perform a lot of HVAC services and receive plenty of questions regarding our services. Below, you will find a list of the most common questions we receive and their respective questions:

How can I prepare my furnace for the winter?

It is best to perform some routine maintenance before the winter season begins. Your winter-ready checklist should include replacing the air filter, re-programming the thermostat, cleaning your chimney, and schedule an HVAC service.

How often should I replace my HVAC filter?

It will depend on the type of filter that you use in your HVAC system. In general, your air filter should be replaced every 90 days.

What can I do to lower my energy consumption?

There are several simple things you can do to reduce your monthly energy consumption including using a programmable thermostat, perform an air duct cleaning, replace your furnace and air conditioner air filters, install energy-efficient windows, and have an HVAC tune-up done by a professional contractor.

Why is my furnace making weird noises?

If your furnace is making unfamiliar noises, there is an issue. It can be a loose part, broken heat exchanger, dirty gas burners, or other damaged part. Contact your local HVAC company for an inspection.

How do I know if my HVAC system is under warranty?

The easiest thing to do is check the serial number of your unit and put it in your manufacturer’s website. They will tell you if it is still under warranty or not.
