Q. How is the efficiency of an A/C system determined?
A. A Central Air Conditioning System is rated using an efficiency ratio system referred as "SEER" or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. As of 1987, The National Appliance Energy Conservation Act or NAECA established a code of standards for residential air-cooled central A/C systems and air source central heat pumps. This standard stated that any air conditioning system installed must meet a minimum "SEER" rating of 10.0. In the same code it also states that a heat pump must meet federal guidelines of 6.8 HSPF or Heating Seasonal Performance Factor for split systems. In regards to the "SEER" rating, as of 2006, all air conditioning and heating systems must meet a minimum "SEER" of 13.0 or higher. At Climate Care Air Conditioning & Heating you can trust in technicians who are not only state licensed but are authorized dealers of American Standard equipment to recommend a heating and cooling system perfect for your needs and budget!
Q. Why does my A/C system run a short time then shutoff?
A. It may be that your air conditioning and heating system is too large for your home. The most important preliminary step when selecting a new A/C system must be a proper calculation of heat load. This will help determine the perfect fit for your home. An oversized system will not only shut on and off more frequently causing unnecessary wear and tear on the unit itself but also waste electricity and inflate your utility expense. In addition, because the system isn't permitted to run long enough, the air in the home never gets dehumidified. You should notice an uncomfortable, cold, clammy feeling as if you were in a cave. Our specialists at Climate Care Air Conditioning & Heating are expertly trained to custom fit a system to your home.

Q. If I replace my old system with a new one will it save on energy costs?
A. Absolutely! The initial expense of a new A/C system may seem overwhelming. However, the long-term benefit of reducing your energy cost will not only pay for your new system but also provide a more comfortable living. Feel free to contact our comfort specialists at Climate Air Conditioning & Heating to customize a "high efficiency A/C system that will be perfect for your needs. You can also have confidence in our 100% financing options available through American General.
Q. Will my new system require any maintenance?
A. Yes! Just like your car, regardless of how old it is, it still requires periodic maintenance and inspection. However, you can trust that Climate Care Air Conditioning & Heating will recommend our optional Safety and Efficiency Service Agreement. This annual program will check your system twice a year to make sure you’re a/c and heating system is running as efficiently as possible.
Q. How often should I change my air filters?
A. The answer to this question has many considerations one should consider. However, as a standard, your A/C filters should be changed at least every 30 days. Factors to consider would include whether you have smokers in the home, pets and even the frequency of use. These factors may find you changing your filters more often.

Q. What are the benefits of a whole house air cleaner?
A. The typical replace-and toss filter traps less than 20% of the contaminants circulating throughout your house, causing the build up of dust and high levels of allergens. Only an installed Whole House Air Cleaner provides optimal cleaning throughout your entire home, conveniently tucked out of the way with your heating/cooling system.
