Q: How long can I expect a new system to last?

A: If you have a qualified technician perform regular preventative maintenance and service suggested for your unit, industry averages suggest that an air conditioner should last 10-12 years (sea coast applications may be less) and a gas furnace should last as many as 15-17 years.



Q: How can I reduce my energy costs?

A: Here are some suggestions that can help you reduce your energy costs:











Q: How often should I change the air filter?

A: We recommend to change the air filter of your air conditioning and heating system once a month. Your air filter helps to keep your duct system, motor, coil and air, cleaner.



Q: Do I need to have my ductwork replaced?

A: Industry experts estimate that as many as 70% of all homes with central air have poorly installed ductwork. Ducts that are not properly sealed or insulated fail to get the hot or cool air where you want it efficiently, therefore costing you money. Before you invest in a new system, make sure an HVAC expert checks your ducts and includes specific recommendations in their proposal to you. This can normally be done for FREE as part of your in-home estimate. Don’t spend the money on a new, super-efficient system unless you are sure those efficiency gains won't be lost by poor ductwork.




Q: Should I be concerned about Indoor Air

A: According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), your exposure to air pollutants can be up to 100 times higher indoors than outdoors.



Q: Is it necessary to change both units at the same time?

A: In able to achieve maximum efficiency of the unit you are purchasing it is suggested that you replace both the condenser and the air handler at the same time. In addition, you should also know that some warranties will not be completely covered with a "mixed" system.



Q: Should my thermostat be set in the "auto" or "on" position?

A: The "auto" position is the energy efficient position for your air conditioning and heating system because the fan will run only when the temperature requires it. There are additional benefits of the "auto" setting that include that the air within the home constantly being circulated resulting in an even temperature throughout the house. Unlike the "auto" setting, the "on" setting position will cause the humidity to be higher. This will result in the dry and sticky air.

The most efficient the



Q:Should I change my indoor coil?

A: When replacing your air conditioner or heat pump, the answer is most likely yes. The efficiency ratings that are advertised for an air conditioner or heat pump are based on the performance as part of a matched system. If only the outdoor portion is changed, the efficiency and savings could be less than that of a matched system.



Q: What is the difference between  a heat pump and an air conditioner?

A: The difference between a heat pump and a normal air conditioner is that a heat pump can be used to provide heating or cooling. Even though the heat pump can heat, it still uses the same basic refrigeration cycle to do this. In other words a heat pump can change which coil is the condenser and which the evaporator. This is normally achieved by a reversing valve. In cooler climates it is common to have heat pumps that are designed only to provide heating. Air conditioning system distributes cool air throughout your home and releases the heat outdoors (Condenser).



Q: What is SEER?

A: The efficiency of air conditioners is often rated by the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) which is defined by the Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute in its 2008 standard AHRI 210/240, Performance Rating of Unitary Air-Conditioning and Air-Source Heat Pump Equipment. The SEER rating of a unit is the cooling output during a typical cooling-season divided by the total electric energy input during the same period. The higher the unit's SEER rating the more energy efficient it is. In the U.S., the SEER is the ratio of cooling in British thermal unit (BTU) to the energy consumed in watt-hours.



Q: What is a zoned air conditioning and heating system?

A: It is simply the process of dividing your home into different zones, or areas, and then heating or cooling them as needed. It’s the ideal way to eliminate hot and cold spots. Plus, zoning systems saves energy by heating and cooling only the areas of your home that you’re using.



Q: How often should I have my air conditioning and heating system serviced?

A: In able to ensure the efficiency of your HVAC system, extend the systems's life and prevent major repairs, your air conditioning and heating system should receive a comprehensive preventative maintenance checkup at least twice a year. At California Comfort Solutions, we offer preventative maintenance agreements that provide you peace of mind year-round.



Q: Is there a fee for a visit?

A: Yes. You should expect to pay a service fee (Trip Charge) of $75 to cover the cost of the technician's visit to diagnose your problem and receive a quote for the repair options. You will be advised of the issue along with recommended options to correct it, which may include a system replacement if your unit is old or the repair would be significant. ””If you decide to replace, service or repair the system, the $75 service fee will be credited toward the replacement, service or repair invoice.””
