Maintenance is key in keeping your heating and cooling system running for many years. Industry averages for system installations in the Houston area are 10-12 years. If you want to be on the 12+ side of this average, you will need to have your system checked and any deficiencies corrected.
Be cautious with any service provider who is way under market cost. Tune-ups, check-ups, or service calls that are priced well below market average are sales presentations that you are paying for. Some companies use commission-based technicians whose pay is determined by how much you spend.
New programmable thermostats are great at saving energy, if used as intended. However, if you replace your current thermostat with a programmable and always hold the same temperature, you're still using the same amount of energy. Ask your tech about smart thermostats that program on their own. They adjust the temperature based your own occupancy and habits.
Two-stage or Multi-stage refers to a system that can operate at different capacities. The capacity of your system is designed for handling your heat load at 95 degrees outdoor. We know that your system is in use when the outdoor temperature is much lower. On a 80-degree day that same system is too powerful for the heat load. It cycles on and off quickly, cooling but not removing humidity as well as it does on hotter days. With two-stage systems, you have the right capacity for whatever the weather has in mind. Low capacity on mild days to ensure long enough cycles to remove humidity and high capacity for keeping you cool on the hottest days. Lower indoor humidity is the key to maximum indoor comfort. The heating side of two-stage equipment works in the same way. Low gentle heating for our mild winters until you need high stage for those blistering cold fronts.
Most homes in our area have return air grills that take a 1" disposable filter. When you go to the home improvement store the aisle is full of choices. Depending of the age and duct design, the more restrictive "better" filters may not be best for your system. Older duct systems were not designed with the more restrictive filters in mind. They just didn't exist in their time. This could end up making the system run harder, shortening its life, and running up the utility bills. We will examine your filtration and let you know if changes are needed.
