We knew when Joey has finished the service it is done right and our heating and cooling system runs smoothly all year. He takes the time to explain everything which we greatly appreciate. -Catherine and Dorothy S.
Q. Why does the air from my vent feel cool when the heat pump is on?
A. The HP is designed to heat the air about 20 degrees each time the air goes through the system. A gas or oil furnace is designed for a 40-70 degree temperature rise as the air passes thru the furnace. So if you maintain 70 degrees in the home, a heat pump will put out about 90 degree air depending on the outside temperature. Since the normal body temperature is 98.6 degrees this 90 degree air feels cool to us. In comparison a gas or oil furnace normally warms the air to between 110 - 140 degrees or higher and therefore it feels warm to us.
Q. How often should I schedule heating and cooling service for my HVAC system?
A. We recommend having your heating & cooling system serviced twice in the year to keep it working at maximum efficiency, to find and fix small problems before they become major issues, and to avoid needing service during extreme weather conditions when everyone needs help and the wait for service can be longer than normal.
