Midwest Mechanical FAQ
Q: What temperature should my thermostat be set for?
A: If you system has been designed properly, you should set the thermostat for your comfort level. During the cooling season, anywhere from 72 degrees to 80 degrees is common. During the heating season, settings typically range between 65 to 75 degrees.
Q: How long should I have my air conditioning system checked?
A: We recommend that you have your system checked at the beginning of each cooling season. This will prolong the life of your air conditioning system and keep it running efficiently.
Q: Is it normal to have Freon added to my system every year?
A: No. If an air conditioning system is installed properly, the refrigerant should not leak out. If you need to have your system "topped off" every year, it is usually an indication of a bad solder connection in the refrigerant piping or a problem in the condensing unit or evaporator coil.
Q: How much will my new air conditioning system cost?
A: The answer is "That depends." There are many factors which must be considered: the efficiency of the equipment, the size of your home, the condition of your duct work, and whether or not you need a thermostat or air cleaner. In most cases, replacing your whole system, indoor and outdoor components, will result in a more efficient, longer lasting system but will also cost a little more. Contact Midwest Mechanical for an estimate.
Q: Should I cover my outdoor unit in the winter?
A: Covering the unit is not necessary. Air conditioners are manufactured to withstand all possible climate conditions. Of course, because heat pumps run all year long, they should never be covered.
