We know you probably have plenty of questions. Maybe some of the frequently asked questions can help.
Q: Why should I replace my existing heating or air conditioning system?
A: New HVAC systems are 60% more efficient and tremendously help reduce your monthly bills. Replacing your system may seem like a huge investment, but monthly savings are entirely worth the money--especially if your system is nearing or past the 10 year mark.
The best part? There are government funded financing payment options that you may qualify for. We can help with that, too.
Q:How expensive are air conditioning and heat pump systems?
A: There are a lot of things to be considered that affects the cost of an HVAC system: the size of your home, insulation, type of walls and windows, and more. Energy Tech's full home energy audit will provide you with exactly your home needs to meet your comfort satisfaction and budget.

Q: What Size Heating and Cooling System Do I Need?
A: The size of what systems you will need depends on the size of your home, your comfort needs, and budget. A system that is too large will make your home cool faster but it may not be comfortable. When air moisture is trapped inside the home, it can lead to damp humidity and may create mold problems. Naturally, it affects your heating and cooling bills. On the other hand, a system that is too small for your home may not give you any comfort satisfaction at all. To help you navigate all the variables, Energy Tech Heating and Air, Inc. will visit and inspect your home and help find the best fit for you.
Q: How Do I Get More Out Of My Current Heating & Cooling System?
A: To get the most satisfaction and comfort from your HVAC systems:
• Your thermostat should be kept at a constant temperature (ideally 78 degrees). Programmable thermostats work well, but may turn on and off sporadically when set to constantly varying temperatures.
• Your filters should be changed at least once a month. Changing is easy and provides better airflow in the system. The system doesn’t have to work as hard.
• Always keep your system clean. Ensure that the outdoor condensing units are free from dirt and contaminants that may impede its full function. Remove leaves, sticks, stones and grass from its surroundings. If your unit needs a professional cleaning, call us today.
Q: Why should you maitain your system, not just repair it?
Carbon Monoxide, and allergens can be present in your system even when it appears to be working perfectly mechanically. The best way to protect your family is by having a qualified professional inspect it annually. New equipment may require this for warranty protection, and the older your equipment gets, the more important these safety inspections are.
Dirt, grime, moisture, and even toxic acids are present in your heating and a/c system. If these build up, they not only cause unreversable wear and tear on your system, they also make your system use more energy to do the same work. This is like losing gas mileage in your car. While your house may still feel comfortably warm or cool, it will cost you more and more to keep it that way the longer your equipment goes without proper cleaning.
The Technical Advantage:
A qualified tech can work on any system, but one who has already looked at that system before will work faster, know what they are looking for, and be more likely to get it right the first time. On top of that, if your system has been maintained properly, it is less likely to have costly surprises, Additionally, we all feel safer with someone we know. Having a maintenance contract helps us serve you better, faster, and that helps us keep our rates low.
Have a room that is cold, or hot, or muggy and you're not sure why? Many people will just learn to live with this, or try to adapt by spending more money on extra heat and cooling. A qualified technician doing a thorough inspection can help you figure out why your system isn't doing what you want and save you money in the process of keeping you comfortable.
