FAQs

Frequently asked questions

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, which includes:

  • Comfort units, such as a furnace, heat pump, air conditioner or mini-split system
  • Ductwork
  • Indoor air quality solutions, like air filters, air filtration systems, germicidal UV lights, whole-house humidifiers and dehumidifiers, and ventilation
  • Comfort controls, such as thermostats and home zoning systems
While there are differing types of HVAC equipment, they all run the same by:
  • Pulling from a fresh air source outside or inside your home or business.
  • Pushing air through a filter to trap dirt and allergens.
  • Heating or cooling air.
  • Distributing air through a ducted system or straight into a room, depending on the type of system you use.

How can I eliminate indoor odors?


Using air fresheners or lighting candles usually only masks odors, it does not eliminate them. They could also lower indoor air quality by triggering allergic reactions, headaches or eye sensitivity. Bacteria, dust mites, animal dander, and mold can also make your residence or business smell. One process to purify the air is with germicidal UV lights. These lights are installed with your heating and cooling unit to:

  • Kill odors
  • Halt mold growth
  • Sterilize the inner parts of your heating and cooling equipment
Every now and then poor ventilation contributes to unwanted odors. Some signs of this are:
  • Moist walls and windows
  • Musty air
A qualified Dr. HVAC technician can inspect your heating and cooling equipment to determine the root of the issue and resolve the trouble.




How often should I have maintenance done on my air conditioner?


You should have maintenance done on your air conditioning system twice a year. This not only ensures maximum efficiency, it enables us to foresee any possible problems that may occur in the near future. Contact Dr. HVAC to plan how you can keep your air conditioning system running at its peak efficiency year-round.
