Our President Answers Your Common HVAC Questions

Not sure how often to change your filters? What should you try before calling an HVAC tech to your home? We hear these questions from our customers all the time! The president of American Conditioning and Heating, James Smith, shares the answers to our customers most common questions.

  • How Do I Choose A Heating And Air Conditioning Repair Company?

    President of American AC Heat Plumbing, James Smith, talks about what to watch out for when getting estimates for your HVAC system. Usually when companies price for less, they are leaving things out. Most consumers don’t understand exactly what goes into installing and servicing your heating and cooling systems so companies who price really low take advantage of this. Finding a company that is reputable and offers a 100% money back guarantee is your best bet!

  • How Often Should I Change My Heating And Air Conditioning Filter?

    President of American AC Heat Plumbing, James Smith recommends changing your HVAC filter at least every two months. Dirt and dust can wear out your HVAC equipment as well as hurt your family’s health. If you don’t replace your filter, not only will your home be dustier, but your system will wear out.

  • How Often Should I Have My Heating And Air Conditioning Unit Serviced?

    Industry experts and utility companies both recommend a service every 6 months. There are components within your unit that need cleaning etc. President of American AC Heat Plumbing, James Smith talks about how not keeping up with service will cause bigger problems down the line.

  • Installation Company Vs. Brand

    There is no brand that is better than the next. Most of the companies out there use the same components on the inside. It is important to get an instillation company that gives you a 100% money back guarantee and is reputable.

  • How Do I Choose The Right Size Air Conditioning And Heating Unit For My Home?

    Sometimes to protect themselves, contractors end up recommending a larger HVAC system than you home needs. Getting a system that is too big for your needs can cause all sort of problems, as in increased utility bills, constant stopping and starting of your unit, and excess draftiness.

  • HVAC Repair: Tips Before You Call A Technician

    Things to check before you call an HVAC professional:

    • Make sure the power is on.
    • Check for dirty filters.
    • Make sure the thermostat is properly set.
    • Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers.
  • What Does HVAC Mean?

    HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning.

  • What Is A SEER Rating?

    President of American AC Heat Plumbing, James Smith explains and simplifies SEER ratings. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. He explains that SEER ratings are just like miles per gallon ratings for your car. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient your unit is and the less energy it uses.

  • Watch Out For Leaky Ducts

    It is very important to make sure your ducts are sealed and tested. About 40% of homes have leaky ducts! This means that extra energy is being used unnecessarily and wasting money!
