Where should I put the HVAC filter?
When you have a Hillside central cooling and heating system, you ought to know where your air filter is located.
Your system does well on airflow. This is why you will need to change out your air filter when it is dirty.
There are many positive aspects that emerge from of changing out your air filter. Your equipment will be more energy efficient and so you will enjoy reduced home heating and cooling costs. Your air will be far healthier and your home will feel a lot more comfortable.
Your air filter is oftentimes found inside the return air duct or what is known as the blower compartment.
This is the most ideal location for your air filter to be located because it filters the air right before your air handler has to deal with it.
This helps prevent the build-up of dirt, allergens, and any other indoor air pollutants throughout your residence.
What exactly is the HVAC SEER rating?
When purchasing a brand new system, you need to check out the SEER rating. This is because it is a rating that gauges just how much cooling efficiency your air conditioning system or heat pump puts out. The capacity output during a cooling season is needed to determine a unit’s SEER rating. The capacity output is then divided by the quantity of energy usage over the cooling season. In a nutshell, the higher the SEER rating, the less power that this unit uses to keep your house cool. You can figure out the SEER rating by checking out the “energy guide” sticker. It is typically yellow and it is found directly on the unit. It can also be located at the top of the manufacturer’s sticker, where the model number and the serial number are on the equipment. If the model number starts out with 13AC, then you have figured out that the unit has a 13 SEER rating.

A reputable and trustworthy HVAC service company will give you an accurate prognosis of what is wrong with your air conditioner’s compressor.

If your compressor is currently under warranty, then it is most definitely worth replacing it. Your warranty will cover the costs of the brand new compressor. You will only need to pay for the cost of labor. If your compressor is not covered by the warranty, then you have to evaluate the cost of replacing your compressor with the price of substituting your entire unit. An old system is worth replacing. Anything more than 10 years old is consider old. Don’t forget to contact Skylands Energy to find out what your recommended options are.
What do I have to know just to find the best heating and air conditioner repair company?
Do your homework in order to get a bit of background information on the company. Choose a company that has certified HVAC technicians. Validate their license as well as insurance. Be sure that they perform their estimates at your home after taking a look at your system. If a company tries to give you an estimate over the phone, then they are not the company that you are searching for. The reputation that can be found through online reviews suggests a lot about a company. Make sure that the company that you are interested has a good one. If you see any warnings, then you know that this is not the company for you. Trust your gut. Most property owners who didn’t trust their gut admit that they had an idea that they didn’t trust when they hired an HVAC company that didn’t produce high quality work due to the fact that of the signs that they saw online or how rushed and neglectful they were in person.
For what reasons should I commit to an air conditioning service contract?

An air conditioner service contract takes care of any repair costs that you could have received otherwise when your A/C unit breaks down. A service contract will focus on your needs if your air conditioner were to malfunction. If you really want easy access to emergency air conditioner services, this is usually included in a service contract. For house owners who are interested in keeping their home comfortable during the summer, a service contract is ideal. A service contract guarantees that your house is more comfortable and uses much less power to accomplish its job.
Not all service contracts are the same. The professional services that they feature may be different from one company to the next. Read the AC system service contract prior to signing it. For example, a few service contracts include the cleaning and maintenance of your evaporative coils. Some service contracts do not include this. Make sure that you take the time to read the fine print. Ask questions and comprehend it entirely before signing it.
