What does it mean that your technicians are NATE-certified?
When an HVAC company states that its technicians are NATE-certified, it means its technicians have been tested by the North American Technician Excellence program. NATE-certified technicians must undergo continuous training and education to qualify for recertification every five years. This ensures that HVAC technicians remain up-to-date on the industry’s best practices, so you always receive knowledgeable HVAC service. Air Masters keeps up with NATE certification for your peace of mind.
How often do I need to schedule your HVAC service?
No matter what kind of HVAC system you have, it will need to be serviced at least once a year. Having it checked twice a year – in the spring and the fall – is your best bet to ensure you’re ready for the summer and winter months when your system has to work its hardest to keep your home comfortable. Regular HVAC maintenance includes replacing the air filter, cleaning indoor and outdoor coils for signs of blockages, and conducting an overall inspection, checking for leaks and any other issues. Be sure to call Air Masters and ask about our Preventative Maintenance Plan, which gives you free service calls with priority placement and discounted repairs year-round!
What is a smart thermostat, and why should I invest in one?
While it’s true that standard and programmable thermostats allow you to control the temperature in your home, smart thermostats allow you to control it remotely using a smart device. Thanks to smart technology, smart thermostats can learn from your behavior and make adjustments in real time based on your energy consumption preferences. You can set timers and tweak your thermostat to help you reduce your monthly energy costs, making it an investment that generally pays for itself over time.
What are SEER ratings, and what should I be on the lookout for?
SEER refers to the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, which is a number used to measure overall energy efficiency for your heating or cooling unit. The government regulates SEER ratings, which vary by region. As a general rule of thumb, the higher your unit’s SEER rating, the more energy efficient it’s said to be, which is vital given Texas’ humidity. If you’re not sure what type of air conditioner or furnace best meets SEER requirements in the Frisco area, Air Masters’ experts would be happy to help!
