How Do HVAC Contractors Benefit Your Home?
You may be wondering what HVAC stands for, so let’s clear up some of the basics of what HVAC contractors do and the services we provide for you. HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning!
Our HVAC technicians specialize in the maintenance and installation of furnaces, heat pumps, and central air conditioners.
Here at Modern PHE, we do more than just install your new HVAC system. Our technicians personally assist you in choosing which equipment best fits your home and your budget, as well as properly installing that equipment into your home. This makes the HVAC market different from other markets for expensive consumer products.
We don’t take your money and run–we make sure you know the ins and outs of your equipment to ensure you get the most out of your investment. An added benefit is our Service Club Membership (SCM), which helps us keep your system working efficiently for many years to come.
When is the Best Time to Hire an HVAC company?
Many homeowners put off hiring an HVAC company until something is seriously wrong with their system. Unfortunately, at this point, the efficiency of your HVAC system may have been affected, its lifespan shortened, and there’s increased potential for a costly repair.
By delaying hiring a professional, you’re also increasing the likelihood of future breakdowns that could have possibly been prevented.
So, when should you hire an HVAC company? Get your system checked at least once a year before the season where you use it most often. Per the manufacturer's requirements, a system needs to be serviced at least once a year. Failure to have your system serviced annually by a licensed technician will void any/all parts and/or labor warranty on your equipment.

Frequently Asked Questions About HVAC Services
What do HVAC services include?
A basic HVAC service should check the operation of the system being serviced, filter, CO (if applicable), check gas pressure (if applicable), drains and elements. It should also offer an inspection of all connections, motor operations, and make sure your thermostat is functioning.
Other services a good HVAC company should provide you are monitoring refrigerant pressure and levels, testing safety controls, and lubricating moving parts.
Here at Modern PHE, we offer more than just basic HVAC services! In addition to HVAC maintenance, we also offer electrical and plumbing services, air conditioning, and air quality services. Always go with an HVAC company that has the services that best fit your home and your family’s needs.
Do you need to service your HVAC system?
Yes. It’s recommended that your HVAC systems be serviced by a licensed technician at least once a year.
If you have a standard central AC or a furnace, each of these should be maintained and inspected every year. However, if you have a heat pump system that you regularly use, you should have it inspected every 6 months to keep it tuned and working.
How much should I pay for an HVAC system?
Your HVAC system is the source of your home’s heat and warmth during the winter. If your HVAC system includes an AC, it also helps keep you cool during the hot summer. It also is responsible for circulating fresh air and can help reduce various allergens and dust.
Average furnace replacements start around $5,000. Of course, the prices can vary depending on the efficiency, size, brand, and if you are adding air quality products or AC.
Remember, HVAC installation prices also include labor costs, testing and adjustments on the system to ensure it is fully operational.
Why should you get HVAC maintenance?
You and your family depend on your HVAC system to keep you comfortable all year. It keeps you warm during the winter and refreshed during the summer heat. Routine maintenance helps your HVAC system run efficiently and last longer.
Could you imagine coming home during a freezing winter night with temperatures dropping to zero, only to realize your HVAC system stopped working and you can't schedule an appointment until next week? Regular maintenance can help prevent situations like this from occurring.
How often should an HVAC system be cleaned?
According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should clean your HVAC's air ducts every three to five years.
However, this depends on where you live and how often you use your HVAC system. Other home factors should also be included, such as having pets or family members with respiratory problems or allergies.
Do HVAC systems include a furnace?
HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. This means that a complete HVAC system provides heat and cool air for your home; including products such as furnaces, air conditioners, and heat pumps.
What's the Difference Between an AC system and a complete HVAC system?
HVAC refers to heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, whereas AC is strictly air conditioning. AC systems are only designed to keep your home cool, they don't provide heat. A complete HVAC system includes a furnace and AC, therefore it keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
How Can I Make Sure I’m Hiring the Best HVAC company?
When you're looking to hire the best HVAC contractor, you should consider several factors. This includes having the proper credentials and licensing, the ability to perform the HVAC services needed, and an understanding of the work being done.
It's also best that you hire an honest HVAC company that understands your needs as well as your budget. Ideally, you should always use the same company for all of your home’s HVAC needs.
Here at Modern PHE, we always strive to be the company you can trust and want to return to again and again. For more information about our services, please give us a call.
