NOVA’s Professional Assessment and Design

Your comfort and satisfaction is our first concern. We thoroughly inspect each home to determine its heating and cooling needs prior to any system installation. Because each home has its own unique air flow requirements, it is imperative that the duct work and indoor fan are sized correctly. This is especially critical when installing high-efficiency central air conditioning and heating to an existing duct system. Our careful investigation will ensure system parts compatibility and the maximum in energy efficiency. We are able to give exact sizing with Manual J + Manual S calculations.

heating install & repair

If your furnace or boiler is older than 15 years, chances are it is a good investment to replace it with a high-efficiency model with the guidance of a good contractor like NOVA. Also consider a replacement now if your system is one of the following:

Oil customers are strongly urged to switch over to gas for many different reasons.

  • Oil furnaces are very dirty and costly to maintain.
  • Oil and propane prices have elevated to new highs, and have both been higher than gas for more than ten years.
  • Gas furnaces are more efficient and create a cleaner environment for your home and family.
  • Old gas furnace without electronic ignition. If it has a pilot light, it was probably installed prior to 1992, and has an efficiency of about 65% efficient (the least efficient systems today are 80%)
  • Old gas furnaces without vent dampers or an induced draft fan (which limit the flow of heated air up the chimney when the heating system is off).

Rusting can be early signs of a cracked heat exchanger which will cause carbon monoxide to leak in your home.

If your furnace or boiler is 10 years old, or even if you think it may not have been installed correctly from the beginning, and you are experiencing discomfort or high utility bills, call NOVA who can help you evaluate your existing system. Often times, it will be more cost-effective to improve home insulation and air-tightness, repair or insulate ductwork, or tune up your system.

Ruud has a full line of furnaces to match your needs of comfort!! All of the furnaces come with spark ignition, which is extremely reliable, and will not fail as pilots and hot surface ignitions have in the past! In fact, on all of our 90% efficient or higher models are now coming with a 10-year warranty on ALL parts and a lifetime warranty on the heat exchanger upon registering your equipment online at Ruud.com

Consumer Reports has awarded Ruud with top honors for the fewest amount of breakdowns in past years over all leading brands.

a/c install & repair

The compressor units of most air conditioners have an average lifetime of only 10 to 12 years. By having yearly service and maintenance procedures, a quality model may hold up twenty years.

1. Reduce excessive use
2. Increase your comfort range by using attic fans.
Each degree you are able to raise the thermostat, you will save 3–5% on air conditioning costs.

3. Clean the air filters on central air conditioners monthly.
The condenser should be cleaned by a professional every year.

4. CALL NOVA HEATING & AIR CONDITIONING to inspect, clean, and tune your system annually.

  • During service of your unit its refrigerant may need recharging. This correction can improve system efficiency by 20% or more.
  • The technician should measure airflow over the indoor coil. Correcting airflow rates can improve efficiency another 5–10%.
  • Regardless of how well tuned it is, the system will not operate efficiently if the duct system is in poor condition. Proper sealing and insulation can reduce cooling energy use by 10–15%.

About Air conditioning (often referred to as A/C or AC) is the process of altering the properties of air(primarily temperature and humidity) to more comfortable conditions, typically with the aim of distributing the conditioned air to an occupied space such as a building or a vehicle to improve thermal comfort and indoor air quality. In common use, an air conditioner is a device that lowers the air temperature. The cooling is typically achieved through a refrigeration cycle, but sometimes evaporation or free cooling is used. Air conditioning systems can also be made based on desiccants.

FAQ

Why should I perform preventive maintenance?
Heating and cooling systems work incredibly hard to perform their functions for your household. The constant stopping, starting and continual operation can wear down a machine quickly and unexpectedly if the proper care and maintenance is delayed. However, by performing preventive maintenance or servicing your system regularly, you can maximize the lifecycle of your heating or cooling unit and guard against many unexpected failures

Preventive maintenance inspections performed on a regular basis can uncover leaks, rust, rot, soot, frayed wires and corroded electrical contacts.

What equipment requires preventive maintenance?
At least once a year heat pumps and air conditioners require a professional tune-up. All HVAC equipment is recommended to be cleaned once a year as per manufacturers. Warranties can be void by manufacturers from not maintaining proper maintenance on systems.

Inspections on boiler and furnace systems should include ductwork, pipes, dampers, valves, the chimney, registers, radiators, pumps, blowers, fuel lines, the gas meter, oil tank and every part of the actual furnace and boiler. Meanwhile, heat pump and air conditioning unit inspections should also include inspections of the fan, compressor, indoor coils, outdoor coils and refrigerant lines.

What type of filter should I use?
Standard filters work to keep your system and its ductwork clean but they don’t really improve indoor air quality. In order to do that you need a media filter. The media filter rests between the main return duct and the blower cabinet and will improve dust and particle removal by seven times that of a standard filter. However, upgrading to a pleated media filter will remove everything from insecticide dust to airborne viruses from the filtered air. A media filter can have a life exceeding two months. Always choose a filter that matches your blower’s capacity.

What is the most efficient way to run my heating and cooling system?

Here are several tips to help you keep your system running at its most efficient level:

1. Keep your thermostat at a constant temperature, the recommended temperature is 78º, even when no one is home.
2. Change your filters every month.
3. Check the outside condensing unit regularly for any grass clippings or leaves stuck to the coil. If it is dirty:
4. Disconnect the power at the circuit breaker FIRST!
5. Spray water from a garden hose through the coil until the water passing through it is clear.
6. Turn the power back on.
7. Have the unit serviced every spring by a licensed service company.

How can I manage my home when I’m away?
With the new WiFi thermostats, you can now control and customize your homes level of comfort from any mobile device. With only a swipe of a finger, you can raise or lower temperature, or turn your system on or off. No more worrying!

Helpful Tips

Use a shop-vac to clean out your drain line on a regular basis. This will prevent the water from backing up and causing damage to your home or office.

Remember to change your air filter on a monthly basis. This simple task can often save you time and money by preventing break downs that require a service tech to repair.

Before calling for a service tech, always be sure to check your breakers and your thermostat to be sure they are turned on. Many service calls can be avoided by a simple reset of the breakers and thermostat.

If you or family members suffers from health problems, look into an ultraviolet light unit for your home. This will reduce the amount of harmful particles in the air and help slow or stop the spread of sickness to other family members.

If you are having problems with your system please give us a call to see what can be done to put your system back to its normal running capacity.

Helpful Hints

How Often Should You Change Your Ruud Furnace Air Filter?
“I only change my Ruud furnace filter when it looks dirty.” Although this is a common assumption of how to know when to replace a furnace filter, it is not good advice. If you can see a build-up of particulates on your filter then it should have most likely already been replaced. A dirty filter not only reduces the efficiency of your furnace but more importantly, negatively impacts the quality of the air you and your family breathe.

But how do you know when to change your filter? The correct answer is: it depends. Many manufacturers recommend that you change your furnace filter every three months. But this is only meant as a guideline. As you might have guessed, every household is different.

A variety of factors may determine how often you change your filter. They include the type of filter, specific conditions in the home, and furnace usage patterns, to name just a few.

How Often Should I Change My Air Filter?
The required change-out frequency varies with filter type, unit location, and other environmental factors. For residential applications, standard disposable polyester or pleated air filters should at least be checked every 3 months. Often after that length of time, a filter will require a change, however environmental factors such as pet hair, heavy foot traffic in your home, and tobacco smoke can decrease the life of your filter; requiring a more frequent change.

For higher efficiency filters or other types of media air cleaner, the life can range from 6 months to over 1 year. Commercial applications have an even broader spectrum of change-out frequencies. Air filters in restaurants are commonly changed every 4 to 8 weeks depending on the customer traffic and filter type. Retail chains, strip malls, and other small businesses vary, but usually are in need of a change every 12 weeks.

Industrial facilities, depending on the nature of their business, often require a filter change-out every week. Plants with heavy smoke, soot, and other airborne contaminants require a massive filtration system, and with all the pollutants in the air, the filters can quickly become saturated. For a free frequency recommendation, please contact NOVA Heating and Air Conditioning.

Do Dirty Air Filters Really Increase My Utility Costs?
Yes! As your air filters get dirty, they begin to restrict the air flowing through the unit. This causes the HVAC unit to work harder to maintain a sufficient air flow. Because your unit is working harder and longer, it is using more electricity, which over time can dramatically increase your utility costs. In addition, dirt acts as an insulator disrupting the heat transfer of the air flowing through the unit. Call NOVA Heating and Air Conditioning to have your filters changed today!

This also causes your unit to work harder, which uses more electricity. There is an optimum time to change any air filter; which is when it has reached its maximum efficiency with out becoming restrictive. By changing your filters on a regular schedule, you really can save money on your utility costs, and help promote a cleaner environment.

Not regularly changing your air filters can also lead to costly mechanical breakdowns. Keeping your air filters clean is truly the most cost effective way to maintain your expensive HVAC equipment, and a cleaner environment for your family, friends, and co-workers.

System Checks?
If you have a forced air heating system, check your furnace’s blower compartment and blower coils. Vacuum them if you see dirt and dust there. You should also check the fan belt tension, and lubricate the fan and motor bearings.

If you have a steam system, check the shut-off valve for leaks.
Bleed hot water system radiators at least once a year.
Don’t keep clutter near your furnace. It’s a fire hazard, and may keep your system from operating efficiently.
To make sure you’re getting the most out of your heating system, keep the heating registers and vents throughout the house free of dust, dirt, and pet hair by vacuuming them at least once a year.
Listen for odd sounds when your heating or cooling system kicks in. If you hear anything unusual, get in touch with your service professional so you can head off problems before they become serious.
In winter months, set your ceiling fan at its slowest speed and reverse it in order to gently push warm air down from the ceiling without generating a breeze.

Caution first!

NOVA Heating and Air Conditioning says to show everyone in your family the location of the main shut off valve to your home as well as emergency shut-off valves for separate fixtures, particularly toilets, kitchen sinks and bathroom basins. Don’t see one? Consider installing these valuable devices to minimize flooding.

Keeping your HVAC system clean.
Getting your HVAC system inspected twice a year by NOVA Heating and Air Conditioning is the ideal situation for most people. This will allow for two important things to occur:

1) This will make sure your system is running effectively and efficiently and that no issues are apparent thus ensuring your system will work when needed.
2) It will ensure your system is clean of debris and in this case, mold/mildew formations and thus avoiding any of the potential health risks associated with mold/mildew.
3) Installing an air purification system into your HVAC system will greatly reduce, if not completely eliminate up mold, bacteria, odors, viruses, smoke and VOCs – leaving behind clean, fresh and odor free air.

Can mold cause health problems? Yes!
Molds are usually not a problem indoors, unless mold spores land on a wet or damp spot and begin growing (in the case above, it’s the evaporator coil). Molds produce allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions), irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances (mycotoxins). Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash (dermatitis). Allergic reactions to mold are common and the reactions can be immediate or delayed. Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people allergic to mold. In addition, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people.
