HVAC is short for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. HVAC is most often used to depict the whole heating and cooling system consisting of the duct work, air filters, humidification controls, and registers.
This mostly depends on the hours of use. Air conditioning units that run 24/7 will need servicing more often than those that run for only 8 hours per day. Ideally the goal is to keep all the filters, vents, heat exchangers and pipes free of obstructions, debris, dirt, dust or anything else that shouldn’t be there.
Health-wise: The filters trap allergens and pollen and helps to prevent asthma and other respiratory disorders, so the cleaner the filers are basically the healthier the air inside will be. Budget-wise: the more efficient your unit is the lower your electric bill will be. Investment-wise: The more anything is maintained, the longer it will last, just like changing the oil in your car, change it on schedule, it will last forever, don’t change it and it breaks.
The quickest way is to locate the label on the outer surface of the equipment for the date manufactured. If the equipment is less than five years old it may have a warranty, depending on the model. Warranty terms and conditions require an approved installer and maintenance by approved service personnel. Be sure to register on our warranty page after having a unit installed.
Split units do not require air filter replacements, only regular cleaning or washing. If the filters become too dirty to clean however, you will require a replacement filter. It is important to keep the filters clean to significantly reduce allergens, pollen and your electric bill. With regular servicing, we will always recommend when it’s time to replace your filters.

You may have tried to cover up indoor odors by spraying air fresheners or lighting candles. Unfortunately, these tactics only mask the odors, they don’t get rid of them. These remedies may actually negatively affect indoor air quality from chemicals that cause allergic reactions or eye irritation.
Bacteria, dust mites, animal dander, cat saliva and mold may also be roots of your home’s odor problem. One method to purify the air is integrating germicidal (UV) lights in your room, which helps kill odors and inhibit the growth of biological contaminants. They also purify the air, preventing the growth of contaminants.
Sometimes poor ventilation contribute to unpleasant odors. Moisture condensation on walls windows and stagnant air are signs of poor ventilation. A qualified Service technician can inspect your location to determine if this is an issue that should be addressed. The technician can also inform you how to solve your ventilation and air circulation problems.
