Heating and AC - F.A.Q.

Trust Modern Air Inc. for Your HVAC and Air Quality NEeds

A heat pump is a versatile HVAC system that can both heat and cool your home. It transfers heat between the indoors and outdoors, extracting heat from the air or ground to warm your space in winter and reversing the process to cool it in summer.
On average, AC units last for about 10-15 years. However, the lifespan can vary depending on factors such as usage, maintenance, and environmental conditions. If your AC unit is over a decade old or experiencing frequent breakdowns, it may be time to consider a replacement.
Common signs of furnace problems include inadequate heating, unusual noises, frequent cycling, and increased energy bills. If you notice any of these issues, it's advisable to have your furnace inspected and repaired by a professional HVAC technician.
Mini splits offer several advantages, including zoned heating and cooling, energy efficiency, compact size, and easy installation. They are an excellent choice for room additions, converted spaces, or areas where traditional ductwork is not feasible.
Geothermal systems utilize the earth's natural heat to provide heating and cooling for your home. These systems extract heat from the ground during winter and transfer heat back to the ground during summer, resulting in highly efficient and eco-friendly HVAC solutions.
Indoor air quality can be enhanced through various methods such as installing air purifiers, using high-quality air filters, regular HVAC maintenance, and controlling humidity levels. Proper ventilation and keeping your living space clean also contribute to better indoor air quality.
The ideal indoor humidity level typically ranges between 30% and 50%. Maintaining proper humidity helps prevent mold growth, respiratory issues, and discomfort. Humidity levels can be controlled using dehumidifiers or humidifiers, depending on the needs of your space.
HVAC system installation requires specialized knowledge and skills. It's best to leave the installation to trained professionals who can ensure proper sizing, placement, and connection of the equipment. DIY installation can result in performance issues and safety hazards.
The frequency of filter changes depends on factors such as filter type, indoor air quality, and system usage. As a general guideline, disposable filters should be replaced every 1-3 months, while washable filters need cleaning every 1-2 months.
Regular HVAC maintenance helps prevent breakdowns, improves energy efficiency, extends equipment lifespan, and ensures optimal performance. It involves tasks such as cleaning, lubricating, inspecting components, and identifying potential issues before they become major problems.
