HVAC questions & answers
What size unit do I need?

There’s no easy answer for this one. A lot of factors will go into what size heating and cooling
unit you’ll need. The type of house you own, its walls, insulation, attic space, and more can go
into determining what size unit is required. A system that is too large could result in a home that’s
too humid, causing problems with moisture and mold. A system that is too small will run
constantly, running up your energy bill. Only a qualified heating and cooling technician can
determine what size unit is best for your home.

If I replace my outdoor unit, do I need to also replace my indoor unit? In most cases, the answer
is yes. There are a variety of reasons why you should replace both the outdoor and indoor unit
simultaneously. For starters, air conditioner and heat pump outdoor units are manufactured to
work with a matched indoor unit. When you mix and match units, it can result in reduced
efficiency and performance.

Also, if you bought your indoor and outdoor units at the same time, your indoor unit will
probably be approaching the end of its useful life at about the same time the outdoor unit. By
not replacing the indoor unit too, all you’re doing is delaying the inevitable and likely paying
higher energy bills at the same time.

By purchasing indoor and outdoor units simultaneously, you’ll get a warranty covering the whole
system, meaning that you won’t have to cover the full cost of any needed repairs to your unit
during the warranty period

Should I cover my unit in the fall and winter?

While covering your unit can prevent unwanted debris from accumulating on the unit, it can
also cause problems if you try to operate it with the covering in place. If you’re going on a long
trip and plan to turn the unit off while you’re gone, feel free to cover it up. Just make sure you
disconnect the power source before leaving.

What causes AC units to freeze up?

There are a lot of reasons why your air conditioning system might freeze up, and all of them
require help from a professional technician to resolve, as only they have the training and correct
tools to fix the problem.

Ironically, low refrigerant can cause your system to freeze up. Over time, wear and tear to your
system can result in leaks that cause the system to lose refrigerant. When your unit loses
refrigerant, it causes the system to freeze up because of low pressure inside the system.
When freon levels are low, the refrigerant still is forced to expand to the same amount. The more
that expansion occurs, the cooler the temperature produced. The colder temperature will cause
moisture in the air around your unit’s evaporator coil to freeze, eventually icing up the coil and
impeding its function.

Dirty evaporator coils can cause units to lose airflow and, eventually, cause the system to freeze
up. Defective blower motors can also cause freezing.

What is a zoning system?

Zoning systems separate your air conditioning system’s ductwork into different segments,
allowing you to exercise temperature control in each segment, thus allowing for more targeted
and efficient air conditioning.
For example, you may have a room with many windows that gets hot in the summer and which
may need more air to cool down, while you may also have a rarely occupied guest room on the
other end of the house. With a zoned air conditioning system, you can direct more cold air to the
many-windowed room and less air to the unoccupied room. This allows more efficient use of
your AC system and a more comfortable home.

What can I do about indoor air quality?

Indoor air quality is a major concern, as many studies show that air pollution is much worse
indoors than outdoors. You can improve your indoor air quality with frequent dusting and
vacuuming, and you can also have a qualified technician install devices such as UV light units,
special air filters, and electronic air cleaners to improve indoor air quality. Poor indoor air quality
has been linked to many illnesses, so improving your home’s air quality is an investment worth
making.

Why should I replace my R-22 outdoor unit with an R410A?

R-22 refrigerant and equipment are being phased out as Montreal Protocol regulations
intended to reduce the impact on ozone take hold. As time passes, replacement parts and
refrigerant for old R-22 units will become harder to find and more expensive, so replacing your
unit now can save you some headaches in the future.
