Why should I have Preventive maintenance?

Your cooling system can lose up to 5% of its efficiency every year it misses a tune-up. Preventing a breakdown, instead of fixing it after it happens, could prevent your water pipes from freezing, which have the potential to cause enormous damage to your house, when they get around to thawing.

Bad capacitors in your HVAC system can cause your fan motors ect. to burn out.  Checking and replacing capacitors that are about to go bad is relatively inexpensive,when compared to the expense of replacing a motor.

A compressor that is running in a system with too little refrigerant (Freon) can be damaged, or burn out completely.

How should I choose the seer rating of my new hvac system?

You will want to compare the energy savings per year vs.the amount of time you would like to see the extra investment returned.Of course this will be different, depending on the system size, and the amount it gets run per year.

As an example, if you run a 3 ton AC unit 2100 hours per year at 12 cents per kilowatt hour a 16SEER unit would save you 81 dollars per year over a 14SEER unit.

What about health issues?

In the Kansas City area, at certain times of the year we are exposed to a lot of allergens. A decent air filter will remove most of these, making the air we breath in our houses much better. Problems can arise when air leaks around an improperly fitting air filter, or through cracks in your return air ductwork. When this happens, the air we breath is not being cleaned as well as it could be. This ” leaking” air will also allow your indoor coil to collect dirt faster reducing efficiency.  These problems can often be remedied with some small changes.

If you have gas heat, a carbon monoxide reading should be taken during your fall system checkup. Sometimes people who have flu-like symptoms through the winter, and just think they get sick easily, can actually be suffering from low level carbon monoxide exposure due to a cracked heat exchanger. A leaking heat exchanger should always be changed , to protect the health(and lives) of you and your loved ones. If you have gas heat, carbon monoxide detectors are highly recommended. You can get them cheap at home depot or lowes, or your HVAC tech can install them for you.This is a serious topic as carbon monoxide is an odorless colorless gas that can kill you.  If you have gas heat, either buy a carbon monoxide detector or have an HVAC tech install one.

How to choose an HVAC brand

United Technologies Corp owns/makes: Carrier, Bryant, Payne, ComfortMaker, Heil, plus a couple more. Daikin Global makes: Daikin, Goodman, and Amana. Lennox International makes: Lennox, Concord, Armstrong Air, Ducane, and Aire-flo. Rheem Manufacturing Company makes: Rheem and Ruud. Ingersoll Rand makes: American Standard, and Trane. Johnson Controls makes: York, Luxaire, and Coleman. You get the idea that there are just a handful of companies that manufacture nearly all the different brands. All the warranties are very similar or identical. Most all of the parts that make these different brands function are also very similar or identical, many parts are even sourced from the same third party manufacturers. The different brands all offer entry-level thru high end equipment. There are some pros and cons across the board, but how do you choose? One thing they all agree on is that this number one factor affecting reliability (more important than brand) is having a skilled competent installer who doesn’t cut corners do the work, and then keep the maintenance up to date. Here at Little River Heat And Air we will install any brand you want, however we get the best pricing from suppliers we have bought volume from. Please call with any questions, or to discuss your HVAC needs.
