With more than 40 years of service in Maryland and the DC area, our team at James A. Wheat & Sons has encountered nearly every HVAC or plumbing issue imaginable. We are eager to help our customers with all their home comfort needs, and here are the answers to some of our most commonly asked HVAC and plumbing questions:
At James A. Wheat & Sons, we recommend two HVAC maintenance visits a year, in the fall and spring. This allows us to provide the care your heating and cooling systems require just before and after the appropriate seasons.
Most air conditioners, heat pumps, and furnaces will last 12 to 15 years with proper maintenance, or up to 20 with high-quality systems and impeccable maintenance. Boilers often last 20 to 25 years.
The easiest way to cut costs is to install a programmable thermostat and set it to reduce heating or cooling while you are away from home. Keeping up with routine HVAC maintenance can boost HVAC efficiency, plus small home improvements like air sealing or adding weatherstripping can also reduce costs.
Basic fiberglass air filters should be replaced about once a month, while pleated or high-efficiency filters should be replaced every three to six months, depending on HVAC usage and air quality requirements.
Normally, you will see an increase in your water bills or water usage. If you have a hidden leak, you may notice stains on ceilings or walls, damp drywall, walls that are cracked or bulging, or ceilings that are drooping. Carpeting my become soaked or wood floors may start warping. You may also hear dripping water or notice odors of mold and mildew.
Most clogs are caused by an accumulation of grease, soap, hair, food particles, and toilet paper, though foreign objects like flushable wipes, hygiene products, or toys may contribute. Clogs will happen more frequently in sewer lines that have collapsed, are damaged, or have extensive tree root growth.
