The size of the HVAC unit should match the heating and cooling needs of your home. Factors such as square footage, insulation, and climate influence sizing. It's crucial to consult with a professional to determine the right size for optimal efficiency and comfort.

Determining how often to change your AC filter is based on several things. First, the presence of pets. Pets contribute a lot of foreign matter to the air that finds its way into the AC filters. Pets usually require a filter change monthly. Second, the general environment where your home is built. A dusty environment will be evident in the filters of your air conditioner. Typically filters are changed every 3 months but sometimes environmental factors dictate more often. Third, the lung health of a home's occupants. Asthma or allergy sufferers will need higher-rated filters changed more often to keep the air cleaner. This will lessen their symptoms and contribute to greater health. 

Ductless mini-split systems are suitable for homes without ductwork, for room additions, or for targeted heating and cooling. They offer flexibility, energy efficiency, and individualized climate control. Consider them if you want zone-specific comfort.

SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. It is a system that allows people shopping for new central air conditioners to be able to compare the operating costs and energy needs of a new unit. SEER ratings are determined by the ratio of cooling power per unit of electricity needed to accomplish it. SEER scores range from 13 to 25. The higher the number the more efficient the system and the lower energy costs will be. However, better technology means a higher initial cost. The technicians at Star Air Conditioning & Heating can help you select the right system to fit your goals and your budget.
