FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS .
Q. Should I replace my old system before it goes bad?
A. Maybe yes, maybe no. More often than not, any system over 10 years old is wasting enough energy that our customers find they
can get an excellent RETURN ON INVESTMENT by replacing them even before they quit.
Q. Should I cover my air conditioner in the winter?
A. Covering your unit will protect the paint job, and could protect some of the moving parts from snow or rain. The biggest danger is
in forgetting to take the cover off in the spring. This could ruin the compressor in a few hours or less. We recommend not covering
it at all or removing the disconnect pull out and placing it somewhere it cannot get lost before covering it.
Q. What is the best system for heating or cooling my home or business?
A. Every home or building needs to be evaluated individually based on your utilities, insulation, windows, unusual needs, ductwork,
building design, and individual objectives and preferences. Please see what we will do for you for free.
Q. How can I get Government Tax Credits up to $2000.00?
A. Please read here to find out .
Q. Can I get a Rebate from my Utility company just for putting in a new system that will save me a lot of money anyway?
A. Sometimes yes, sometimes over $1000. Read more.
Q. Should I put a Tank less (Tankless) Water Heater in?
A. We are not particularly fond of this technology. Please read more here.
Q. How often should I change my filter?
A. Anywhere from monthly to annually. In general 1" thick filters need changed more often because even though they allow most
pollens and allergens to pass through untouched, they don't have much storage capacity and will plug quickly and can damage your
equipment. Please read more about filters here.
Q. Can my heater and air conditioner cause MOLD?
A. Yes, there are many things that can go wrong with your HVAC system that can provide an environment that will allow mold to
thrive. Please look at our INDOOR AIR QUALITY section.
Q. Should I run my fan all the time?
A. If you have good MERV FILTRATION and a DC FAN then the answer is absolutely. This promotes good INDOOR AIR QUALITY and
helps to eliminate STRATIFICATION. If you do not have a good filter, you may just be blowing pollen and allergens around. If you do
not have a DC FAN you may rack up a lot higher electric bill.
Q. Why does my fan run all the time?
A. If your fan is running and you don't want it to, check your thermostat. The switch that says Fan on or automatic should be set to
automatic. If your fan continues to stay on you may need a service call.
A. Yes we do have a few here.
Q. What is the best Brand of heating and air conditioning?
A. We sell many brands, and they all have their strong and weak points. Please take time to read some of our findings.
Q. Should I turn my thermostat down when I'm gone during the day?
A. Yes, if you wish to save money and don't mind the discomfort when you return. With the exception of an AIR TO AIR HEAT PUMP
you will save more while the system set lower than you will spend heating the space back up.
Q. Should I turn my thermostat down at night when I'm sleeping?
A. Yes, if you wish to save money and don't mind the discomfort. With the exception of an AIR TO AIR HEAT PUMP you will save more
while the system is set lower than you will spend to heat the space back up.
Q. How often should I have my system serviced?
A. For most systems we recommend Planned Service 2 times per year. Please read why our GEOTHERMAL systems can go longer.
Q. What is Planned Service?
A. Preventative maintenance and tune up. Read more here.
Q. Can I really get a discount on my electric rate just for being Green?
A. Sometimes yes even 30%, some times no. Read more.
Q. Is Propane safe to use to heat my home?
A. While all systems use electricity or gas, some have more inherent dangers than others. Propane is heavier than air. If you
develop a leak, the vapors will fall to the floor and collect or pool. When they come in contact with any spark or heat source they may
explode, destroying the structure and killing anyone inside. In our opinion there are no systems safer than GEOTHERMAL
Q. What about Freon destroying the OZONE layer?
Q. What should my indoor humidity be?
A. Generally your air conditioner should remove humidity down to about 50% in the Summer. Your HUMIDIFIER should raise your RELATIVE HUMIDITY to about 30% in the winter.
Q. Do the Guys in the Orange Trucks do Plumbing?
A. No, generally not. We do repair and replace water heaters, but we do not repair faucets, clean sewers, or install septic tanks.
Q. Should I put a screen over my PVC flue pipe?
A. We do not recommend this, as the screens will easily plug with frost under certain conditions.
Q. What is the best kind of air filter?A. Please read about our MERV FILTERS.
Q. Do you have financing?
Q. What does "for PQS call TGITOT mean?
A. For Prompt Quality Service call The Guys In The Orange Trucks.
Q. Should I be afraid of CARBON MONOXIDE poisoning?
A. If you have any Propane or Natural Gas burning appliance in your home or business, or have an attached garage, the answer is YES, and you should immediately install a Carbon Monoxide Detector (much like a smoke detector). Carbon Monoxide is tasteless
odorless, and invisible. It often times disables or kills it's victims before they know there is a problem. We feel heating with a HEAT PUMP or GEOTHERMAL is much safer.
Q. Why does water come out of my furnace?
A. The most efficient CONDENSING FURNACES take so much of the heat out of the flue gas, that they cool it down to below 212
degrees. Since water is a byproduct of combustion the water condenses.
Q. Why does water come out of my Air Conditioner?
A. If an air conditioner cooled the air without removing water the Relative Humidity would raise to a very uncomfortable level.
Q. Why does my Air Conditioner or my Heat Pump get ice all over it in the winter?
A. This is perfectly normal for a Heat Pump. It should go into a defrost cycle before the ice blocks off all air.
Q. Why does my Heat Pump need a Defrost Cycle?.
A. The coil on an Air to Air Heat Pump gets colder than outdoor temp in order to pull heat from the outside air. This causes
condensation and or frost to form on the coil. If the ice is not melted it will stop the function of the unit. Geothermal Heat Pumps do
not have to deal with this issue.
Q. Why does it get so dry in my home in the winter?
A. As your furnace heats the air the RELATIVE HUMIDITY drops.
Q. Why is it always hot on the top floor and cold in the basement?
A. Unless STRATIFICATION is properly addressed, you will have poor comfort.
Q. Why do I have Hot and Cold spots in my home or building?
A. This could be a simple ductwork problem. However, different areas need different amounts of heating or cooling at different
times of the day, and year. The problems could be Stratification, Core Load Area, Solar Gain, Internal Heat Gain, or other poor Engineering problems. The solution may be, Zoning, Continuous Fan, Economizer, or something else.

A humidifier is a device that adds humidity to a space. Often people ask, "Why do I need a Humidifier?" Our bodies, and most of our
furnishings and equipment would like to have a consistent RELATIVE HUMIDITY of about 50%. In the winter if we do not in some way add
water to the air in our homes and businesses the indoor RELATIVE HUMIDITY will fall below 20% much of the time. This causes many of
the mucus membranes in our bodies to crack, allowing bacteria and viruses an easy place to enter our blood stream. It also causes
many of our furnishings to dry out and crack.
. Many people attempt to solve this problem by boiling water on the stove, or by placing portable humidifiers or steamers around their
home. While this can be effective, most of the time they actually hurt themselves more than they help. This is because they are not
consistent and they cause the humidity to make wild swings several times per day. Wide swings are very hard on our furniture and reek
havoc with musical instruments.
. Most average homes need to have between 10 and 20 gallons of water per day added to the air during the coldest part of winter. A WHOLE HOUSE HUMIDIFIER integrated into your HVAC system and ductwork can easily do this, without you having to carry water or, watch
a pan on the stove. More importantly it will be controlled by a HUMIDISTAT (like a thermostat but it measures humidity) that you set where
you wish, and don't worry about it.

. HOW DOES GEOTHERMAL WORK? . The concept is quite simple. It works very similar to how your current air conditioner now
works. Your AC moves excess heat from your home, using freon, coils, and a compressor, to the air in your backyard. A simple
AIR TO AIR HEAT PUMP works just like this, with the addition of a reverse cycle. It, in other words has the ability to move heat (in the
winter) from the air in your backyard to the air inside your home. Now, I will admit that gets a bit tough to do when it is ZERO outside,
but it is common practice. A GEOTHERMAL HEAT PUMP is actually a DIRT TO AIR HEAT PUMP. In the summer, when your home or
business gets too hot, we move that excess heat out to the back yard. Instead of putting it into the air where it will simply be blown
by the SW Ks winds up to Nebraska, we choose to put it into the DIRT where we can save it until winter. (You can learn a lot from a
squirrel). We do this by first transferring the heat into a closed loop antifreeze solution. We then circulate that antifreeze through a
series of pipes that run either horizontally or vertically through your backyard. In the winter we simply reverse the freon flow, and
begin pulling the same heat that we put in the ground all summer back out of the DIRT and put it back in your home.
