HVAC Myths Busted

Whether it’s a cold winter morning or a hot summer afternoon in Northern Colorado, your HVAC system is working hard to keep you comfortable.

There is a lot of well-intentioned and good advice out there on the internet, along with a lot of misleading myths that can end up costing you time and money. Fortunately, Lion Home Service is familiar with all of the most common HVAC myths, and we have the facts to debunk them.

 

 Myth #1:  Crank up the T-Stat

Truth: Thermostats send information to your system that tells it when to turn on and off based off of the temperature you want to maintain.  Your heating system will deliver air at the same constant rate no matter how high the temperature is set. The only difference it will make is that it will run longer until it reaches the setting you have set.  So cranking up the heat or turning the temperature way down, generally wont speed up the process, just cost you more money in the long run.

 

 

Myth #2: Close those vents and registers

Truth: This myth makes sense in theory—if you’re not using a room in your home, why not close the vents so you won’t have to pay for heating or cooling an empty room? However, closing vents can actually cost you more money in the long run by damaging vital components of your HVAC system. Even if your vents are closed, air is still circulating through your ducts. This increase in pressure can damage your ductwork, and damage your blower fan by causing it to leak or overwork. Bottom line, it’s best to leave all of the vents in your home open so that air can circulate throughout your home properly. If you have hot and cold spots in your home, talk to one of our experts about zoning and duct sealing.

Myth #3: Fixing an old furnace repeatedly

Truth: Maintenance matters! Just as you schedule routine maintenance for your car, and annual checkups for you and your family, your HVAC system needs an annual check-up as well. While it may be tempting to skip a routine maintenance appointment to save some money, this decision can have negative financial impacts in the long run. This is due to the fact that routine maintenance gives a service expert the opportunity to spot and fix small problems before they become more serious, and more expensive. 

Having your system assessed annually can save you from costly repairs down the road or worse. The systems fatigue will trigger damages in the furnace’s firebox, which increases the chance of carbon monoxide poisoning. 

 

Myth #4 High Efficiency system solves all     

Truth: It takes a combination of various insulations, such as sealing your doors, windows, attic space, plumbing pipes, duct work and any leaks and cracks, Together, with the air produced by your efficient system will in and keep you comfortable and save money.   

Myth #5: The larger the system, the better

Truth:  Bigger can actually be worse. The size, or power, of a system is carefully measured to properly heat and cool your home. A more powerful system can occasionally be fine, but most often ends up short-cycling (shutting off and on prematurely), which can cause long-term damage to the system, costing you more money to operate and shortening its lifespan.

Be careful when choosing the contractor because some will convince homeowners to make a bigger purchase than necessary and pay for power you don’t need.  When it is time for you to replace your HVAC system a Lion Expert will measure your home and offer you a system with the exact specifications you need to ensure you receive the most energy efficient system available.

 

Myth #6: Only changing filter once a year

Truth: Your filters are your home’s first line of defense against all the dirt, dust, and other contaminants that can circulate throughout your HVAC system. Because of this, it’s important to change your filters much more often than once a year. Dirty filters can constrict the amount of air that flows through the system, causing the system to work harder—which can lead to a possible breakdown. Dirty filters can also have an overall negative effect on the air quality in your home.

Ideally, you should clean or replace your filters every six weeks. If anyone in your home has asthma, allergies, or other respiratory conditions, you should change your filters monthly. This also holds true if you have pets, as their hair and dander can contribute to your filters getting dirty faster.

Take advantage of our Filter Subscription program and have filters delivered conveniently to your home.

Myth #7: Keep the temperature the same

Truth:  If you’re not at home, you can save money by raising or lower the temperature on the thermostat. Rather than remembering to do this before you head out the door in the mornings, you can set a programmable thermostat to do it for you. For example, if you’re home in the mornings, but away at work during the day, you can program the thermostat to automatically increase or decrease the temperature as needed. According to the EPA, homeowners can save around $180 a year by using a programmable thermostat.

 

Myth #8: Using you HVAC system in short bursts saves money

Truth: Your HVAC unit actually uses the most energy during the first 3-5 minutes after you switch it on. If you continuously turn your unit on and off, you’ll end up using a lot more energy than necessary, which will be reflected in higher energy bills.

To heat or cool your home more efficiently, try toggling the switch on your HVAC unit to “on” and then leave the system to run uninterrupted. This allows the fan to blow air constantly, helping to maintain the temperature in your home and reducing the amount of energy that’s used.

 

Myth #9: If its not broke, don’t fix it

Truth: If you’ve been holding out on replacing your HVAC system, it’s time to see how technology has changed.  When it comes to comparing older and newer HVAC systems, the differences are clear. Newer systems are exceptionally energy-efficient, allowing you to save on your monthly energy bills. Newer systems are also generally quieter, easier to operate, and less prone to breakdowns. Additionally, older systems may use defunct parts or equipment, such as R-22 refrigerant, which can make repairs costly. Rather than continuing to pay for a system that’s past its prime, replacing the system altogether is a better investment overall.

Inside our Lion HVAC Maintenance Assessments

 

What separates Lion Home Service from other HVAC companies, and positions us as experts in our field, is our comprehensive Maintenance programs.  Unlike other companies that only perform a simple check for loose bolts or dirty filters, we check the entire system from top to bottom—to help it work efficiently all year long.

To help you understand what our maintenance assessment entails, we’ve compiled a list of the major points for both the heating and cooling season. In this article, we’ll explain what each major point is, and how it benefits your system.

 HVAC Maintenance for the Heating Season

 

Every year we find ourselves turning up the thermostat to keep our homes warm—especially when Northern Colorado temperatures really starts to drop! During a heating maintenance assessment, our service expert will inspect your home’s heating system and ensure that it’s ready to keep you comfortable in the winter months.

Heating

  • Check all the burners for proper operation
  • Check thermocouple for proper operation
  • Check the flue pipe
  • Check the inducer and blower motors
  • Check and tighten all electrical connections
  • Check the safety switch and controls
  • Check the pilot assembly
  • Check temperature and pressures
  • Check thermostat for proper operation
  • Check drain lines and traps for proper function
  • Testing and labeling of emergency shut-offs
  • Check gas valve
  • Check zone valves
  • Check expansion tank
  • Check aquastat, relay and water regulator
  • Check air flow across indoor coil and blower wheels
  • Check duct work for leaks
  • Start and test operation and cycle of unit
  • Check air flow
  • Check humidifier/dehumidifier

Here are the top 4 services you can expect during a heating season maintenance assessment and why we do them.

 

1. Check gas valves and connectors

The gas valve of your furnace supplies the gas it needs to allow combustion. Since it’s an important part to a fully functioning furnace, it should be thoroughly checked out to ensure that everything is in good working order. The service expert will inspect your furnace’s gas valve to make sure it’s allowing combustion, as well as inspecting all connectors to make sure they’re doing their job of powering the furnace.

2. Check burners

Burner flames should be a bright blue color. Yellow flames indicate dirty burners or that the gas is not completely lit, which can impact your unit’s heating performance. Problems with the burner can also indicate a potential gas leak, which could be dangerous. Since burner fixes are best left to the professionals, the service expert will inspect them and alert you to any problems during your maintenance assessment.

3. Check duct connection

Ensuring that your ducts are free from damage, debris, and leaks will improve the air quality in your home and keep your heating system operating at its best.

A duct system helps deliver and remove air from your home through a controlled path. This path begins at an outlet connected to your HVAC system, and runs throughout your home. As part of your maintenance call, the service expert will inspect your duct connection and ensure that it’s in good shape and free of any leaks. If there are any leaks, the service expert will let you know how to improve efficiency.

4. Check furnace belt

In most cases, the air fan that provides heat for your home is powered by an external motor. If the belt between the motor and the fan breaks or is worn out, problems can arise—including less efficient heating and higher energy bills.

A worn furnace belt can create a squeaking noise, while a belt that is too loose will keep the fan from turning as it should. The service expert will inspect the belt for signs of wear and tear, and let you know how its operating.

 

 

HVAC maintenance for the Cooling Season

During the cooling season, your AC system should be serviced to ensure it’s ready to withstand the blazing summer heat. We’ll inspect the unit to make sure you won’t have any unwelcome surprises when the temperatures start to rise. As part of your maintenance assessment, a service expert will examine your air conditioning system and alert you to issues on components such as refrigerant levels, condenser coils, and more—which are typically overlooked by other HVAC companies.

Even if you had a maintenance assessment the previous winter, it’s still important to schedule maintenance for the summer. This is because the two assessments differ and address different elements of the HVAC system.

Cooling

  • Check condenser coil
  • Check evaporator coil
  • Check blower motor
  • Check refrigerant charge
  • Check and tighten all electrical connections
  • Check temperature and pressures
  • Check thermostat for proper operation
  • Check and labeling of emergency shut-offs
  • Check controls and safety devices
  • Check capacitors
  • Check condensate drain
  • Check relays and contactors for proper operation
  • Check duct work for leaks
  • Check proper amperage and voltage of A/C system
  • Start and test operation and cycle of unit
  • Check air flow
  • Check humidifier/dehumidifier

Here are the top 4 services you can expect during a maintenance assessment on the Cooling system and why we do them.

1. Check refrigerant levels

One of the first things our service expert will do on a maintenance assessment is check your AC unit’s refrigerant levels. Refrigerant is a compound that absorbs heat and generates cold air when combined with components such as compressors and evaporators. If your refrigerant levels are low, a leak is mostly likely to blame. Without any refrigerant, your AC system won’t work at all, and you’ll quickly notice a hot and uncomfortable home. It’s our service expert’s responsibility to check for any leaks and alert you to any needed repairs, to ensure your unit will be set to run all summer long.

2. Check condenser coils

Condenser coils absorb the heat from inside the house and release it outside. If the condenser coil is dirty, this process is interrupted, and the system doesn’t function as it should.

A dirty condenser coil can cause problems including:

  • Higher energy bills
  • Uncomfortable room temperature
  • A system breakdown

During a maintenance assessment, the service expert will clear any debris, that may be surrounding the unit. They’ll also alert you if any additional cleaning is required.

3. Check thermostat calibration

If your thermostat is out of sync with your unit, your home may never actually reach the temperature you set it to. Your air conditioning may also show signs of short cycling, meaning it turns on and off frequently. This can wear down your system and result in higher energy bills. If the service expert notices your thermostat is reading wrong, they’ll re-calibrate it to make sure that it reads accurately.

4. Check air flow and filter size

Even the best air conditioning system won’t be able to cool your home effectively if your filters are clogged, dirty, or the wrong size. Additionally, filters that are too big or too small can let unfiltered air into your home, increasing your exposure to allergens and pollutants. The service expert will check the filters in order to ensure that they’re the right size, and that air is flowing correctly. If there’s a problem with the filters, they will either replace them during the maintenance assessment or schedule a follow-up.

 

It’s important to perform regular annual maintenance on your units to make sure both your air conditioning and heating systems operate at peak performance well into the future. Just as you take your car in for regular maintenance, regular maintenance is required of your HVAC units to ensure they operate effectively and efficiently.

Your manufacturer’s warranty will not cover maintenance visits. However, most manufacturers require your unit to be maintained annually to protect your warranty and keep your part warranty up to date.

When to schedule maintenance

We recommend scheduling your maintenance calls in the Spring and in the Fall, before the Summer or Winter temperatures start. That way, any problems with your unit can be addressed before you need to rely heavily on heating or cooling. We will even call to remind you!

6 Important Reasons to Consider HVAC When Renovating

Improving your home is one of the best feelings available to homeowners. Here in Northern Colorado, where property values seem to only surge upward, a renovation to improve your property can also pay exponential dividends down the line or save you from the hassle of upgrading your home prematurely.

It’s no surprise that many local homeowners choose to renovate their homes at some point. With all-time-low interest rates driving more mortgage refinancing-based home improvement projects than ever, now is a great time to consider a renovation.

If this sounds like you, just be sure to remember these 6 critical aspects surrounding your home’s HVAC amidst the project.

1 – Added Square Footage May Require Extra HVAC

Perhaps the most obvious and important aspect HVAC plays in renovations surrounds an addition to the home. After all, very few homeowners will want to add square footage to their homes in this part of the country without heating and cooling factored in. If you want to add the most value per new square footage to your home, it is almost a must to include new HVAC in the plans.

This could mean upgrading your current system by adding extra furnace or air conditioning units at the most, expanding ductwork to the new area at the least, and just about everything in between based on the scope of your HVAC system and the renovation project.

If you’re adding any square footage to your home, get in touch with the pros at Lion early to have an expert opinion on the requirements for heating, cooling, and ventilation that will pass inspection and create a great project from day one.

2 – Opening Walls Opens Up Opportunities

From the very first day of demolition work, you’ll likely find surprising things in your home’s walls. It’s not uncommon for contractors and DIY renovators alike to find “surprises” in the walls that could require re-routing or the need address in some other fashion.

In any case, finding something in a wall you didn’t expect during a renovation typically amounts to dollars lost.

However, there’s an incredible opportunity available here as well. This could be the perfect chance to upgrade your home’s ductwork or add-in that extra power outlet near the couch that you’ll be so glad you thought of ahead of time, to name a few.

Additionally, many Northern Colorado homes feature older baseboard or boiler-based heating systems, and a renovation grants the perfect chance to change that out for a central heating and cooling system, which many local homeowners prefer.

Rather than looking at your renovation as the path of least resistance to your initial vision, try to imagine the home you want to live in day-in and day-out and take this opportunity with open access to your home’s structural elements to make that happen!

3 – Consider Replacing Furnace or AC Units

There are very few times that are more convenient to consider upgrading that old furnace or AC unit than when you renovate or remodel your home. Even if your system will not need any upgraded output potential for new square footage, starting your new living space off fresh with a brand-new system may be worth considering.

Scheduling our furnace or air conditioning installation team to come in at the ideal time during your renovation means that you’ll have one less thing to worry about after the renovation concludes.

Additionally, if you’re using low-rate mortgage refinancing to access your home’s equity to fund your project, as many Northern Colorado families are these days, then seizing the chance to start with a new, warrantied furnace and air conditioning unit for your home protects you from unexpected repairs or replacements after the renovation.

4 – Check and Change Air Filters Often — Really Often

Even a minor home renovation — a live-through renovation, for instance — kicks up a ton of dust and debris that your HVAC system is simply not used to or built for taking in. One key place to keep a close eye on anytime your HVAC system runs during or after your renovation is your furnace’s air filter.

You’ll likely notice an immediate difference the first time you check your air filter during the renovation. If your system is running, it is likely that you’ll see thick layers of drywall dust, particles of debris, sawdust, and other unusual contaminants evident on your filters.

Any blockage of a furnace filter can cause your system to overwork, your air quality to go down, and a host of other, potentially expensive, damages. Expect to check your filter every couple of days during and after a renovation and keep a hefty stockpile of clean filters ready to swap out as your system pulls in and works through the dust and debris in your home.

5 – As the Dust Settles, Get the Ducts Cleaned

While duct cleaning is a relatively rare event for most homeowners — often ranging from every 2-4 years based on your living situation — a post-renovation home should get duct cleaning performed almost immediately after construction finishes.

As mentioned above, your air intake vents will collect a ton of dust and debris from your home’s renovation, even if the system isn’t engaged at all until after the renovation concludes.

The fine particles created from cutting, moving, and placing the building elements used in your project creates a unique challenge for your home’s ventilation. You’ll see evidence of this throughout the home: thick layers of dust atop door frames; a white powdery substance on winter coats; ceiling fans that let off a cloud when engaged; etc.

Just imagine how much dust accumulates in your forced-air ventilation system as the air cycles through your home. A single renovation can more than outweigh years of normal wear-and-tear on your ventilation system, especially if left uncleaned long afterward.

With a single duct cleaning from Lion Home Services, your ventilation system will run at full strength and remove the undue burden on your home’s furnace and AC.

6 – Set Up a Maintenance Plan

You’ll continue to see heavy, unusual dust in your furnace filters for quite a while after the construction is over. Rather than worrying about what toll that may be taking on your home’s HVAC systems, it’s best to set up a maintenance plan early and in advance to ensure your home’s furnace, air conditioning, and ventilation are not getting their lifespans cut short as a result of your project.

Trust the team at Lion Home Services to analyze and maintain your home’s HVAC after the renovation. We want you to enjoy your newly-improved home with safe, energy-efficient heating and cooling for years to come!

Hail Storm? Check on Your Air-Conditioning Unit

We are no strangers to hail damage here in Northern Colorado. Here, hail can happen just about any time of the year and often without advanced warning. Damage to vehicles and building structures is common knowledge, but one thing many homeowners in the area do not know to check on after a hail storm is their exterior air conditioning unit.

Inspecting Your Air Conditioner After a Hail Storm

What You’re Looking For

To cut right to the chase, what you’re looking for when inspecting your exterior air-conditioning unit for damages is any structural harm. Most commonly, the component that is likely to suffer hail damage is the coils that often surround your air conditioning unit.

If you see that the thin screens surrounding the coils or cooling fins of your unit have impact marks, dents, or any other noticeable damages, call a certified service expert as soon as possible.

It is rare that internal components of your system will be damaged, but in extreme cases that could be possible. If your exterior unit has noticeable dents or impact marks on its surface, especially to the housing around the fan at the top, interior damage could be possible. If you notice anything unusual about your AC unit after a hail storm, do not wait for the problem to go away on its own.

Consider the Timing

Since many Northern Colorado hail storms occur on warm days in the spring and summer months, it’s possible that your AC will be running when the damage occurs. If you need your system active in the days after the storm, do not hesitate to reach out and speak with our team at the first sign of possible damages.

Additionally, it is important that we mention that you should never touch your AC unit while the system is active, even if it isn’t running at the moment; always turn off the AC system inside before inspecting the unit.

Why Impact Damages Can be Concerning

As mentioned, it is most likely that damages to your air conditioning unit will be centered around the coil system that wraps most exterior units. Since the coils on your air conditioning unit are often left exposed or semi-exposed to the elements, they can take a beating from powerful enough hail.

This can be problematic as damage to this portion of your air conditioning system can have a dramatic impact on your monthly energy consumption and costs, as well as put unnecessary strain on your forced-air system. Essentially, there are multiple ways that impact damages to this system can cost you far more money down the road versus the low cost of inspecting and repairing damages as necessary following a hail storm.

The Good News

If you’re ready for some good news in all of this, here are some key things to consider:

  1. Since most external air-conditioning units are nestled up near your home, they are often largely protected from the worst of a hail storm by your home’s structure.
  2. Damages to this system are often minor compared to that of homes or cars and most exterior air-conditioning units are built tough to withstand quite a bit of harassment.
  3. Even if your AC unit does get damaged, repairs to your coil system are far less expensive than increased energy costs from leaving the issue unchecked or fully replacing your AC or furnace.
  4. The team at Lion Home Services is committed to helping your family with honest advice, estimates, repairs, and even replacements if needed. We’re proud to serve Northern Colorado families after a storm and will always strive to do what’s best for you.

If you suspect that your system has been damaged by a recent hail storm after inspecting the unit, noticing a sudden spike in energy costs, or hearing something not quite right with your home’s air conditioning system, get in touch with our team today to get that checked out.

Also, our team proudly provides roofing repair and replacement services for normal wear-and-tear, as well as hail damage for our Northern Colorado community. With one call, you can get all of your home’s exterior inspected and repaired.

Importance of Routine Maintenance

Many people think that companies suggest routine maintenance because it’s a source of income, but that’s simply not the case. Routine maintenance is actually one of the only ways that you can save money with these high-end investments. How, you may be asking? Well, for starters, when you have a professional inspect and tend to the systems within your home regularly, you’re more likely to catch — and hopefully prevent — bigger problems early on.
