  • What does HVAC stand for?

    HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. It refers to the systems that regulate and move heated and cooled air throughout residential and commercial buildings, from homes to offices to indoor stadiums. 

  • How often should I replace my HVAC air filters?

    Your air filters should be replaced every one to three months depending on usage. This is extremely important to the performance and health of your heating and air conditioning system as well as your indoor air quality. 

  • How important is my indoor air quality?

    So very important! Your indoor air quality can be as much as 5 times worse than the outside air. Improving and maintaining your indoor air quality is vitally important to your home and family. Call the Sky HVAC team today to see how we can help improve your home IAQ!

  • When should I have my heating and cooling equipment serviced?

    Your HVAC systems should be serviced before the start of each heating and cooling season. So your AC unit should have maintenance performed at the beginning of spring while your furnace should be maintained at the end of summer or early fall. 

  • How can I lower my electric bill?

    There are a few things you can do to lower your energy usage including the following:


    • Install a programmable thermostat or smart thermostat 
    • Regularly change your air filters 
    • Schedule routine HVAC maintenance
    • And more!
  • What size heating and air conditioning system do I need?

    A correctly sized HVAC system isn't just based on the size of your home. At Sky HVAC, we will account for your square footage, your walls, the types of windows in your home, insulation, etc. in order to find the perfectly sized HVAC system for you. 

  • What is SEER rating and why should I know about it?

    SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and it measures HVAC system efficiency. This is calculated by the cooling output for a typical cooling season divided by the total electric energy output during the same time frame. The higher the SEER rating, the greater energy efficiency of the system.
