HVAC Heating FAQ
Heating is an essential component to any HVAC system during the winter months to ensure you stay warm and cozy! However, there’s plenty of questions we get about how the units work and, more importantly, how you can save money! We want you comfortable – with warm air at a budget you can afford. Here are the top HVAC heating questions we get at Sig Cox Augusta Air Conditioning:
Q: How Does a Heating System Work?
A: Although the home-heating process may seem complicated, it is, overall, quite simple. The process begins with your furnace, which creates combustion gas. From there, this gas is funneled into a heat exchanger. Then, the unit takes the air from your home into this exchanger and warms it using the combustion gas. Finally, the air is expelled from the unit to warm your home or office.
Q: Why is Installing and Maintaining a Heating System Important?
A: In the cold Augusta winters, heating shouldn’t be a luxury. Heating is vital to ensure the comfort of your family, employees, co-workers, or anyone else. A working, well-maintained heating unit will also help prevent unhealthy mold buildup caused by winter moisture. Further, cold temperatures can lead to an unnaturally high blood pressure and heart rate, which could cause many health problems.
Q: What Size Heating System Should I Get?
A: Although many believe that the bigger the unit, the better it is, this is just not true. If you are in the market for a new heating system, you should purchase one that correlates directly with the size of your home or office. If your unit is too small, it will strain itself trying to heat the whole building. If it’s too large, its cycles will be shorter and more frequent, and, in turn, raise your heating bills. Therefore, getting a heating system that fits with the square foot size of your home is the way to go.
Q: How Can I Lower My Heating Bill?
A: There are many relatively easy ways in which you can lower your heating bill. When your heating unit is operating, be sure to check that all of your windows, doors, and your fireplace are closed, as they will allow heat to escape if open. Further, you can try lowering the temperature on your thermostat by a few degrees. The slight drop won’t be too noticeable, and it will benefit your wallet in the long run. If you plan to go on vacation for more than a few days, you could even shut the heater off completely to save money. You’ll also want to make sure the vents are clear of any dust buildup that might prevent heat from blowing out.
Q: What is the Best Temperature to Leave My Thermostat on?
A: I am sure you’re aware, this age-old question is hotly debated among families and coworkers. Although the answer is up to each person’s preferences, a good range to go by is 65-70 degrees in the winter. However, this is only for when you are inside of your home or office. When nobody is there, you should lower the temperature by 10-15 degrees. It won’t impact anyone, and it’ll reduce your heating bill.
Q: What Could Cause Damage to My Heating System?
A: Be careful! Many issues can cause damage to your heating system. Many heating unit dilemmas are the result of dirty filters. Essentially, over time, these filters become clogged, which may lead to airflow issues throughout your home. Remember you need to change your filter every 1-3 months. However, sometimes dust particles can get trapped deep inside the HVAC system. Having annual unit checkups should include deep cleaning of the vents and furnace coils. Another issue is the common wear and tear of the heating system over time. A typical unit will last 10-20 years. If your device is nearing that range, you could consider a replacement model.
