Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the difference between a furnace and a boiler?
A: A furnace is a hot air system with or without central air conditioning attached to it, both heat and air conditioning come out of the same supply registers. A humidifier is usually attached to this system due to the dry air. The humidifier should only run while the heat is running. A boiler is a heating system that does not have air conditioning attached to it, it is either hot water, oil, or steam that produces heat through either baseboards or radiators.
Q: How often do I need to service my air conditioning and/or heating system?
A: Depending on your type of system:
- If you have forced warm air (furnace) your system should be serviced twice a year; once before air conditioning season and once before heating season.
- If you have a boiler it should be serviced once a year before heating season.
- If you have central air condition your system should be serviced once a year before air conditioning season.
Q: What is a ductless split system (heat pump)?
A: A ductless heat pump supplies both heat and air conditioning with no ductwork.
Q: Does my humidifier need to be serviced?
