5 Questions To Ask Your Furnace Technician

January 18, 2023 | Blog

Heater maintenance is one of the most important and frequent services your home will need to function properly. It’s best to have professional furnace repair done annually, depending on your technician’s recommendation.

Since you want to make the most out of your HVAC appointment, feel free to ask your technician any questions about your furnace. In fact, Surgi’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing encourages all our New Orleans clients to research and inform themselves about their home appliances, and gain insight into their home and how it functions.

When Is My Next Maintenance Appointment?

Most heating and cooling systems are recommended to have at least one tune-up per year, especially during seasonal changes. Your local technician will inform you of what the frequency of your scheduled appointment should be, depending on unique factors.

You can also get ahead by scheduling your next appointment in advance – it’ll save you the hassle of doing it later in the year. Most technicians are usually booked during summer and winter, so you wouldn’t want to call too late!

How Can I Improve My IAQ?

If you or anyone in your household suffers from allergies and or asthma, this is a crucial question to ask your technician about. In the most simple terms, indoor air quality (IAQ) is the quality of the air inside buildings and structures. IAQ levels significantly impact health, comfort and safety in homes. IAQ affects everyone – even if you don’t have allergies.

Because IAQ is linked to your heating and cooling systems, it’s best to ask your technician about it and how your unit is either positively or negatively contributing to it. They’ll give you personalized recommendations for what’s best for your home.

How Do I Choose A New AC Unit?

Maybe you’re nearing the end of your furnace’s life span, or you’re interested in upgrading your unit. Did you know there are over four different types of central heating and cooling systems, all with their own function?

Because there are so many factors and different systems to consider, it can be overwhelming to select your next unit. Whatever the reason, your HVAC technician is an excellent person to talk to about the different options on the market.

What Are SEER Ratings?

SEER ratings measure the energy efficiency of an AC system. The higher your rating is, the most efficient your unit is. Various factors go into SEER ratings and choosing which works best for your home.

Your technician will be able to calculate and determine what the best rating for your needs will be and factor this into choosing a new unit. If you don’t know your SEER rating, ask your technician! They’ll be able to tell you all about it.

Do You Offer A Maintenance Plan?

Your local HVAC company may offer an HVAC maintenance plan, which can vary depending on clients’ needs. Some establishments provide different tier plans. When you schedule with our team, you can take advantage of our Shield of Protection Plan. Consult with your technician to find out more about what we can do for you!

Very professional!

The technician, Rene, was very thorough and informative. He called before he was arriving to let me know when he would be there. It was in the window of time Surgis gave me. I will definitely use them for regular maintenance and future HVAC needs. Very professional!
