Is air quality an issue in regards to my own HVAC unit?

Believe it or not, indoor air is subject to pollutants 10 times more than outdoor air. Therefore, it is imperative to keep your HVAC unit properly cleaned and cared for throughout the years to ensure you are not being exposed to harmful, polluted air quality.

How do I know I am choosing the right unit for my property?

 The top things to consider when on the market for a new HVAC unit are size, your budget, allergen, and temperature needs. These factors all vary from household to household, so it is important to make a list of all the things that you think will affect your choice on a unit, and use proper judgment based on what you find. Our HVAC specialists are properly trained to walk you through and ensure you are choosing the correct system for your home.

Why should I replace my current system?

 As an HVAC owner, it is imperative to know when it is the right time to replace your aging or damaged system. Over the years, an aging unit will become less and less efficient due to wear and tear, therefore, replacing an older unit to a newer one will not only give you the benefit of newer, energy efficient technology, it will also save you money! If you notice your monthly energy bills getting increasingly more expensive, it may be time to replace your older unit. At ALPS Air Conditioning and Heating, we want the best for our customers.
