Sometimes air filters can get clogged and lead to airflow that is drastically reduced both in terms of quality and quantity. No one wants weak, dirty, and/or potentially stinky air being blown in their direction — let alone being circulated all throughout your home or office building! In order to fix a blocked air filter, simply install a new air filter. The instructions for how to install a new air filter vary depending on the make and manufacturer, but oftentimes there are directional guides that accompany purchased air filters.
On the opposite end of things, HVAC systems can also be inefficient. If air conditioning vents are improperly sealed or not properly connected, then this will ultimately result in less air being circulated around your home. In order to fix leaking ducts, you’ll first need to locate the origin of these leaks. Sometimes this is a task better suited to professionals, but this often depends on the size and complexity of the HVAC system. A good rule of thumb is that if you begin investigating leaking ducts but cannot identify the source of these ducts, then it is probably a good idea to call a professional (Air-Rite HVAC) who specializes in airflow issues.
A dirty filter cause poor cold airflow in your air conditioning system. That cold air will be trapped inside your air conditioner, causing ice to form on its coils. Once that happens, your air conditioner will freeze up and become inoperable.
1. Turn off the furnace.
2. Remove Blower Compartment Cover
3. Make sure Blower is Cooled off.
4. Locate the reset button and press it.
It depends on yourself and your needs! Please speak to one of our associates to see if you are in need of a plan.
Heating and cooling systems work by the heat alwaysing moving from a warm to cold object. Basically, furnaces throw heat in the air to stay warm and air conditioners take away heat to cool the air
A geothermal heating and cooling system or pump is a ground sourced heat/cooling system that transfers heat from the ground! Basically, using the Earth’s heat as your source!
The difference between heating and cooling vs plumbing is plumbers are experts on pipes, like your toilet and sink and HVAC are experts in air conditioning and heat.
A ductless system is a mini a/c unit that has a condenser outside and an evaporator inside, which flows through both and pushes heat from indoors outside. HVAC however cold air is moved through your furnace into duct-work and then pushes to the rest of the house.
The top two best heating and air conditioning systems as Geothermal heat pump and mini split heat pump!
If you are using a less expensive filter, about thirty days, or once a month. Some advanced filtration systems are changed every time a new season starts. We can send a monthly reminder to you to check/change your air filter, so sign up today!
If filter maintenance is not done routinely, it could result in poor performance and equipment breakdown. Additionally, your energy efficiency will decrease, making your system work harder and increase your cost to operate.
A/C units are designed to be outside year round, so covering them is not necessary in the winter. Covering them could trap moisture inside and cause premature rusting. While it’s not necessary, if you would like to cover the unit, find a cover that fits your a/c and allows for air to pass through it.
On average, air conditioning units last 10-15 years, depending on how your maintenance your HVAC unit.
There are a few reasons your system may be leaking water. During summer months, a possible refrigerant leak could cause a frozen coil in the duct-work at the furnace. A clogged floor drain or condensate drain could cause the water to back up into the system. Condensation issues could create excessive water at the unit. It could also be the nearby water heater that is leaking. Let Air-Rite take a look for you and find out what is happening. If you do think it is a frozen a/c coil, turn your system off so it can thaw before a technician arrives.
Many things can cause indoor air pollution such as cleaning products, air fresheners, mold and even the family pet.

Since each system is unique,it’s not a one size fits all. During your annual equipment maintenance, our technician can discuss your filter maintenance with you. Never run your system without a filter.
SEER is a type of rating system for Air Conditioners. It stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. Think of it like gas mileage, the higher the number, the less electricity used while delivering the same cooling. Most A/Cs installed before 2009 are 10 S.E.E.R., after that the government mandated a minimum of 13 S.E.E.R. While Carrier offers units well over 21 SEER, our cooling season is so short upgrading that high may not be warranted. A lot of homeowners are choosing 15-17 S.E.E.R. and are able to take advantage of rebates from ComED.
With proper installation and maintenance, your furnace can last anywhere between 12-20 years. Another factor that may affect the life of a furnace is the brand and type of furnace that was originally installed. It is recommended you choose a trusted professional to install the furnace and conduct routine maintenance to maximize the life of your furnace.

HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Here are those components that makeup an hvac system: The Furnace | The Heat Exchanger | The evaporator coil | Condensing Unit | Refrigerant tubes | Thermostat | The Ductwork | The Vents | The Heat Pump
There are four types of HVAC systems: Split systems | Hybrid systems | Duct-free systems | Packaged heating and air systems. Each of them has its own pros and cons. So, choose according to your needs and requirement.
SEER is known as Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratios, which are used to indicate how efficiently an air conditioner or heat pump will operate during the season. The United States Department of Energy requires all new AC units to meet minimum SEER ratings.
A higher SEER rating means greater efficiency.
AFUE is known as Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. This rating measures the amount of heat a furnace produces compared to the amount of fuel consumed. A Higher AFUE percentage means higher Furnace efficiency and lower your fuel costs.
On average, most HVAC systems last from 10 to 15 years but depending on the type of system and other participating factors, that life span can be varied.
