HVAC and Refrigeration FAQ

How many years can I expect to get from my Air Conditioner and Furnace?

About 10-12 years is normal in this part of Texas. This is a harsh climate, so regular maintenance is essential to get the most from your equipment. With current utility prices you should consider replacing sooner rather than later. Newer, higher efficiency equipment can help keep utility price increases down.

Can NEW Equipment really Save me Money on my Utility Bills?

Absolutely; by as much as 50%! At today’s utility prices it doesn’t take long to recover the cost of a new air conditioning and heating system. Call us at (972) 424-2929 to find out more.

What is SEER?

SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. Think of it as similar to mileage ratings for cars and trucks – a higher number is better. For example, a 14 SEER rating unit will provide about 40% better efficiency than the 10 SEER units typically installed during the early 1990s. For even greater utility savings, we offer equipment rated up to 18 SEER.

What is PURON?

PURON is an environmentally friendly refrigerant used in many refrigeration systems.

What is a 2 Stage Gas Valve?

A 2 Stage gas valve is a valve that meters gas into your furnace and it has two stages; a high stage and a low stage. For more information, please call LCS at (972) 424-2929.

Should I have a Preventative Maintenance Agreement?

Think of your air condition and heating system like a car. You wouldn't run your car for 10 years without oil changes or inspections. Your heating and cooling system is a machine that needs regular service for a long durable life.

Is it possible to have too big of an Air Conditioning Unit?

An oversized unit will provide cooling faster, but will not remove humidity adequately. Also, if your ductwork isn’t big enough to match the air conditioner the airflow will be too slow and you could freeze the coil, which would make it cease to function at all. Size matters; bigger isn’t always better.
