Answers to Your Top HVAC Questions from Comfort Air


What Does HVAC Stand For?
HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning.
How Often Should I Receive HVAC Maintenance?
Our experts at Comfort Air recommend having your HVAC equipment cleaned and serviced at least once every year. Ideally, you will want to have your AC serviced in the Spring and your heater serviced in the Fall.
How Can I Increase the Efficiency of My HVAC System?
To increase the efficiency of your heater or AC unit, be sure to schedule regular maintenance at least once a year. Regular cleaning and inspections will help you get the most out of your HVAC systems. A programmable thermostat is also helpful since they lessen the energy demands placed on your unit. If your HVAC system is particularly old or worn, an upgrade or replacement may be the best route to a more efficient system.
How Often Should I Replace My Filters?
Your HVAC filters should be changed at least once every three months. If you suffer from allergies or have pets, you may want to change the filter as often as once a month or every other month.
When Will I Know it is Time to Replace My Heater?
If your heater is more than 15 years old, it is time for a replacement. If the rooms in your home are heating unevenly or not at all, the unit may need to be replaced. Frequent repairs, visible rust, persistent humming or buzzing sounds, and cracks also signal that a replacement may be necessary.
When Will I Know it is Time to Replace My AC?
Your AC is only meant to last around 10 to 15 years at most when it is well maintained. Age may be an indicator that a replacement is needed, as well as inefficiency. If you have had your AC repaired several times and still feel uncomfortable in your home, you may need to replace the unit entirely. Frequent and expensive repairs that only provide short-term solutions indicate that a new unit is your best option.

I was planning a heater upgrade and received a 24 month no interest offer from Home Depot. They sent me a list of contractors and Comfort Air was the only contractor that called me before I could call anyone else. The customer support, salesperson and installers were fast, competent and incredibly supportive. From the time that I contacted them until the heater was installed was fast and the new heater is a big improvement over what I had before. Highly recommend Comfort Air for fast, efficient and professional service. I feel comfortable that they will be responsive, should there ever be an issue with my new heater!

Bradford the technician has come to our home a couple times and is always professional. I especially appreciate the exceptional customer service in the office. Every time I call, no matter who answers the phone, they always help me and go out of their way to help me understand how to troubleshoot my thermostat/heat pump. Today, I needed to revise an appt time and Rosa called me twice today to make sure she set up the appt for a time that would work for me. Fabulous service!
