Here are some HVAC and Home Performance questions customers frequently ask. If you have further questions or would like to speak to our experts, don’t hesitate to contact us.

What temperature should I set my thermostat to?

It depends a lot on your personal preferences, your comfort level. On average, people set their thermostat somewhere between 74 and 78 degrees in the summer and 68 and 72 degrees in the winter. Several things you may want to consider is how much energy you want your system to consume and how much cooling/heating leaves your house. If you want to keep your bill down, you would want to keep the thermostat closer to 78 in the summer and 68 in the winter. The “leaker” the house, the more air leaves the living space and the more extreme the thermostat will need to be set.

What do I do if my system does not work the same in every room?

Small temperature variations are normal when there is only one thermostat. However, the variation in temperature could be due to improper duct design or infiltration. We would be happy to perform a free assessment to assist you in discovering what is causing the difference.

What HVAC system is right for me?

When considering what to include in your new HVAC sytem, you should include the size of your home, budget, allergies, and temperature needs. Providing your requirements to your HVAC representative will help ensure that you are investing in the right system.

How much does a new air conditioner cost?

The price of air conditioning is variable. It depends on the size of your home and how many rooms you need to cool. The larger the space, the more expensive the system will be. Also, we also look at the current ductwork and how much will need to be replaced. The price will also depend on any additional accessories needed such as thermostats. An important point to keep in mind is your budget as well as the savings you will receive because of the new system over time.

Should I close the registers and doors to unused areas of the home?

No. It decreases the efficency and airflow of your heating and air conditioning system. Each system is designed to heat/ cool a certain amount of square feet. If you do close the registers and doors, the airflow is disrupted and your system is forced to work harder to heat/cool the other areas. Thus, becoming less efficient.
