  1. Why Are There Cracks Forming Around My Home? Moisture is causing the cracks to develop. An HVAC contractor will likely install a humidifier to help remove the warm air before it starts causing problems.
  2. What is SEER? Your unit's SEER rating is based on its Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio.
  3. Why Are Things Dry During Winter? The humidity in the air is naturally slower during the winter. Running your furnace during winter also reduces the humidity.
  4. Should I Replace My Loud Unit? Your unit will start becoming louder over time. The louder your unit gets when you start it, the more you should consider replacing it with a new one. Newer units are less noisy and more efficient, which lowers your electric bills.
  5. Why Does My Home Feel Hot and Cold? This generally means you have sealing issues. You may need to insulate your home by applying caulking.
  6. When Should I Change My Air Filter? Most filters can last for up to three months as long as you have a clean home. You'll need to change your filter regularly if there is a lot of dust around.

These questions should help you hire the right heating and cooling company. Look for a company that can answer your questions and service your unit. Good luck!
