FAQs About Heating, Air Conditioning & Electrical Services in Lancaster, Chester, PA

  • How do I know which heating and cooling brand to choose?
    What’s more important is getting the right sized air conditioner or furnace and hiring the right contractor. The goal should be to get the properly sized equipment. Hiring a qualified contractor will help you with this.
  • How do I choose a heating and cooling contractor?
    Choosing the right contractor is probably the most important decision you have to make. You want to find a knowledgeable and experienced HVAC contractor since they will be making recommendations that affect your comfort and safety. To start with making sure that the contractor is licensed, insured, and has a physical address. Ensure that you can contact their office and that it’s not just someone with a cell number. Next, make sure their training and credentials are up to date. As HVAC equipment increases in efficiency and features, it gets more complex and requires better technicians.
  • What is ENERGY STAR® and why is it important?
    ENERGY STAR® is an EPA voluntary program, that helps individuals and businesses save money and protect our climate through superior energy efficiency. Many ENERGY STAR® products qualify for rebates and incentives through the utility companies.
  • How often should I change or clean my air filters?
    This depends a lot on the homes environment For example, a home with many pets or someone with allergies will want to change their air filter more frequently than others. A good rule of thumb for average use is to change or clean your filter every three months, but that can increase to once a month for people with allergies and/or pets.
  • What can I do to lower the cost of my monthly utility bill?
    There are many things you can do to help your furnace or heat pump perform better. First, make sure that you change the filter in your heating and cooling unit regularly. Some homeowners do this monthly. Then, make sure to have your heat pump, furnace, or air conditioner serviced regularly. Further, the addition of a programmable thermostat will not only allow you to determine your comfort level but is also a big contributor to taking control of your heating costs.
  • How important is my indoor air quality?
    The short answer? So important! Your indoor air quality can be as much as 100 times worse than the outdoor air. That means pollutants, allergens, dust, and mildew can be circulating in your home affecting your family’s health and wellbeing. Improving and maintaining your indoor air quality is vitally important to your home and family.
  • What is a ductless mini-split system?
    A ductless mini-split system is an alternative to traditional heating and cooling like central air. Ductless HVAC works similarly to central heating and cooling, except that it doesn’t require ductwork. Your mini-split system will have an indoor and outdoor unit, but it will only require a small hole to be cut through the exterior wall—just big enough for a tube of refrigerant to pass through. Inside your home, the air will be conditioned and returned into the room by the same unit.
  • What does HVAC stand for?
    HVAC is short for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. We often use this abbreviation to refer to your whole heating and cooling system
  • How do I know of I have an existing warranty on my furnace, air conditioner or HVAC system
    You’ll want to find a production date. This is usually situated on a label on the exterior of your system. If your unit is under 10 years old, it might still be warrantied. However, warranty terms and conditions vary by manufacturer and installing company. At JJJ TECHS Heating & Air Conditioning, we can verify your warranty state via system inspaction ain North America for residential heating and AC equipment, regardless of equipment age or manufacturer warranty standing.
  • My AC isn’t working—what should I check before calling JJJ TECHS ?
    Before you call us, check the basics: test the batteries in your thermostat, check for a tripped breaker or blown fuse, change your air filter, make sure the system is set to cool, and that the setting is at least three degrees below current room temperature. If one of these five simple problems are not to blame, call us for a complete cooling system checkup.
