What is HVAC?

HVAC is the acronym for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Basically, it is the systems that move air between the indoors and outdoors, and heat and cool a structure. They also filter and clean indoor air, which improves indoor air quality

What to Expect When Hiring Rapid City HVAC Company?

When hiring an HVAC company, you should do your research prior to scheduling an appointment with them. Verify they perform the services that you’re looking for, and check their reviews and listing with the BBB.

When the technician comes to meet you, they will arrive at your home ready to perform an initial inspection. This includes both an indoor and outdoor inspection of your HVAC unit. They will ask you if you’re experiencing issues with the unit, or if you’re simply wanting preventative maintenance HVAC services.

After the inspection of your HVAC unit, they will advise you if there are repairs needed. If repairs should be necessary, you’ll be provided with a quote for repairs. If you choose to move forward with those repairs, a service visit will be scheduled, and any repair parts will be ordered in preparation for the service call.

Common FAQs

What causes AC units to freeze up?

Low refrigerant levels cause your AC unit to freeze up. Over time, as refrigerant leaks from the unit, it causes low pressure inside the unit, which will cause the unit to freeze up.

Dirty evaporator coils and defective blower motors can also cause the unit to perform poorly, and ultimately cause the unit to freeze up.

How long do HVAC units typically last?

Generally speaking, if you have your HVAC unit serviced regularly, it should last over 15 years. However, if you live in a humid climate, or run your HVAC while there is snow on the ground, it may shorten the life span by a year or two.

How do I know when I need a new HVAC unit?

If you have an inspection and you’re informed that repairs are needed to your HVAC unit, you should weigh the repair cost against the cost of a new unit.

If your unit is over ten years old, or if the repair costs are going to equal over 60% of a new unit, you would probably be better off replacing the unit.

If your HVAC unit can no longer handle heating and cooling your home completely, you should replace the unit.

How can I save money on my energy bills?

A few simple tips to help you save money on your energy bills:

  1. Use ceiling fans to help you cool your home where possible. Ceiling fans also help circulate the air in your home, and take some of the task off your HVAC system.
  2. Use a programmable thermostat that will ensure your HVAC unit doesn’t run all day while you aren’t home. Be sure to set it at a reasonable temperature so you don’t come home to frosty windows.
  3. Ensure your HVAC unit is running efficiently by having it regularly serviced, and that your air filters are regularly cleaned or replaced.
  4. Unplug any appliances that you aren’t currently using so that they aren’t drawing energy while not in use.
  5. Be sure that your doors and windows are properly sealed so your home isn’t losing heat or air through the spaces around them. If you can feel heat or air blowing from the outside, you’re losing too much air from improper sealing. This can be fixed quite easily, and save you a great deal of money in energy savings in the long run.
