How does forced air gas heating technology work?

The thermostat senses that the room temperature is cooler than the set temperature and signals the furnace to come on. Inside the furnace a small exhaust vent blower comes on to force the unused vent gas out the flue. This in turn allows gas and air into the "heat exchanger" to be ignited by a glow bar. When the gas begins to burn it heats up the metal "heat exchanger". The furnace blower then comes on and blows the air warmed by the heat exchanger into the room thru your duct system and registers. Ultimately, you and your family feel warmer.

If I am going to replace my old inefficient furnace, do I need to replace it with the same BTU capacity?

In most cases the answer is NO, you won't need as large an input furnace. With today's furnaces obtaining 80% to 95% in efficiency you just don't need as large a furnace. The old inefficient furnaces were wasting almost half of their heat up the flue vent to the outside and not into your home. We can help you in deciding what system is right for your home.

How will I know it's time to replace my central heating and cooling system?

When your furnace or air conditioner starts giving you more problems and the problems are not cost effective to repair, particularly when major components such as the compressor start making unusual noises or otherwise indicating need for service. Because newer equipment is more energy efficient, the money you save in reduced utility costs, might pay back your purchase price of a new system years earlier than you might think.

How important is my heating and cooling system?

One of the most important investments in your home you'll ever make is an improvement in your heating, cooling and indoor air quality system. These systems are vital to your family's comfort and health. Although it is not glamorous, good home comfort equipment that is correctly installed can increase the value of your home, prevent costly repair bills, and even help improve some health problems. If your furnace or air conditioner is very old and you replace it with a new high efficient model you could see a savings of up to 40% on your utility bills.

How often should I have my system serviced?

Heating and AC (HVAC) systems should be serviced once per year. It is best to have the furnace or boiler tuned-up in the fall and AC in the spring before heavy use occurs. Call ARA to have your system tuned up properly.

What are the benefits of having my equipment serviced?

Servicing your Heat and AC (HVAC) systems annually: increases dependability; locates any problems; allows the unit to perform at its maximum efficiency, therefore lowering energy costs, prolonging the lifespan of the unit, and ensuring that the unit is operating safely and healthily.

How often should I change my filter?

It is recommended you change your filter every thirty days for best performance. This can vary dependant on your furnace and filter model.

How important is it to get a system that's the right fit for my home?

Very important!

If you get a system that is too big, it may heat or cool your home too fast and you won't feel comfortable. The thermostat temperature will be satisfied before you are. During the cooling process, humidity won't sufficiently be removed from the air causing you to feel sticky, and it could even lead to problems with mold in your home. Short starts and stops will also shorten the life of your system and raise utility bills.

If the unit is too small it won't be able to get the job done in your home, this is especially true during colder weather. The systems will have to run constantly again raising utility cost and reducing the life of the system.

It is best to have an ARA Home Comfort professional visit your home and take exact measurements to better inform you which system will work best for you and your home.
