Hvac services cover a wide range of activities that aim to keep homes and businesses comfortable through temperature control. They fall into three broad categories: installation, maintenance/repair and replacement.
HVAC installers typically provide both heating and cooling systems. They may also offer ductwork installation and a variety of ventilation solutions. They are also able to advise on energy-efficient systems that offer long-term cost savings. Installation costs vary according to the size of a home and existing features. They can also be affected by the system’s SEER rating and energy efficiency levels.
Maintenance includes a regular inspection of all components to ensure they are working as expected and efficiently. This may include lubricating moving parts, checking and refilling refrigerant, testing electric circuits, cleaning air ducts and ensuring the correct amount of air is being directed to each room. Landlords should also consider supplying tenants with new air filters to reduce maintenance costs and avoid expensive repairs due to restricted flow of air.
A HVAC repair company will check all possible problems to ensure that a particular issue is not causing any damage to the system and can be fixed quickly and cheaply. They will also be able to advise on what type of replacement part is required, with quotes provided for different models. They should be upfront about their billing process and any additional charges, as well as guaranteeing their work with a labour warranty. They should also be willing to discuss the make and model of a potential replacement system, its energy efficiency rating and any available government rebates and incentives.
