1. What is the most common issue with HVAC systems?

The most common cause is a dirty air filter. When the air filter is dirty your blower has to work harder to force air through the filter. This increases the blower's energy consumption and can sometimes trip the circuit breaker. Check your filter and replace it with a clean one before resetting your circuit breaker.

3. What is the purpose of an air duct and what kind should I have in my home?

Air ducts are responsible for distributing warmed or cooled air throughout your home, and for keeping you comfortable. Improperly designed or failing ductwork can cost you a great deal of money in energy loss and in some instances, lead to a premature failure of your heating and cooling units.

  • Better HVAC system efficiency

  • Improved comfort

  • Easier construction

  • Longevity of your system

4. What are the benefits of preventative maintenance?

  • Longer life expectancy - Maintenance is an important step in extending the life of your heating and cooling system. A furnace or air conditioner can last up to 20 years.

  • Home safety and comfort – During service appointments technicians will clean and inspect your internal components. This includes checking your furnace and air conditioner, replacing filters, and carbon monoxide testing. They will also take the time to explain what they find and any work that is recommended to resolve issues.

  • Better air quality - All the air in your home passes through the furnace filter. Simply changing the filter removes trapped dirt, pollen, and allergens from your home. 

  • Lower energy costs - An inspection from a Grille Mechanical Contractors service technician ensures your HVAC system is working at peak efficiency. If not properly cleaned every year, your system could be losing up to 40 percent of its energy efficiency causing higher energy bills.

  • Reliable operation - While the AC takes center stage, your furnace sits idle for about six months. This allows dirt and dust to accumulate in the system components, which prevents your furnace from running its best. If you turn the system on in the fall without properly cleaning the fans, that dirt and dust will blow right back into your home. Internal system maintenance is best left to our service technicians; it’s a messy job and can damage your system if it’s not done properly.

5. Why should I replace my current HVAC system?

Over the years, a heating and cooling system can become less efficient. Oftentimes, the main culprit is regular wear and tear. If your home's comfort system is working harder to maintain the desired temperature, you may notice higher utility bills and the need for increasingly frequent repairs. If this is what you are experiencing, it may be time to consider a new system.
