3 Questions You Can Ask Your Technician to Help Get the Most Out of Your HVAC

Helms Heating & Air Conditioning - Thursday, February 15, 2018

What can I gain from an HVAC maintenance agreement?

If you’ve recently signed up for an HVAC maintenance agreement, you’re probably already sold on the benefits. But how can you get the most out of your HVAC system, whether you have a maintenance agreement or not? You can start by asking these three questions of your technician:

Question #1: What’s the Deal with the Air Filter?

Your air filter is the gateway to your heating and cooling system, filtering out dust, dirt, pet dander, and other airborne pollutants so they don't get into the equipment and cause damage or compromise performance. What your technician can tell you is how it works, where it is, how to change it, and how often it needs changing. Doing it twice a year during regular maintenance is good, but it's not enough.

Question #2: How Do I Set My Thermostat?

A programmable thermostat is a great way to increase your comfort and decrease your energy use and monthly energy bills. If you don't already have a smart thermostat, your technician can recommend the right one for your home. If you do, but you're not using it to its full potential, they can give you a quick tutorial so you can take advantage of all the benefits it has to offer.

Question #3: How Can I Make My Home More Comfortable?

Your indoor air quality, ventilation, and humidity levels are all contributors to the comfort level of your home, though you probably don't think about them that often. Your HVAC technician can assess your home and your needs, then recommend the right equipment to help resolve some of the issues and make your home, and your family, feel better.

Don't let your HVAC tech come and go without taking advantage of all their know-how and experience. Pick their brain to find out how to get the most out of your system.
