These are the most commonly asked questions having to do with heating. Please contact our Raleigh heating professionals if you don’t see your question answered below.
What is a heat pump?
A heat pump is an all-in-one heating and cooling system. Instead of multiple systems, like a furnace and an air conditioner, a heat pump can cool your home during the summer and heat your home during the winter.
Should I change out the filter for my furnace?
Yes, you should replace the furnace air filters consistently. Be sure and use the indicated size for your furnace, and double check they are installed properly. Depending on the amount of system usage, pet dander, hair or fur, dust and other contaminants in the air, Yellow Dot Heating & Air Conditioning recommends changing your air filter every 30 to 90 days.
Why should I clean the area around my furnace when I get a repair?
It is pivotal to keep the area around the furnace free of debris, dirt, and any miscellaneous items. Keeping the area clear will also help keep the equipment more accessible for repairs or inspections.
How do I know that I need a new heater?
If your heater is in need of frequent repairs, is 15 years or older, or cannot heat your home correctly, we advise you replace it. When a heater or HVAC system is older, it doesn’t operate as well and could actually end up costing you more money than it should.
