Questions to Ask a Technician During a Service Call

Oct 1, 2021 | Uncategorized

Typically, a service call is inevitable if you notice any problems or damage on or to your HVAC system. But, on the other hand, when making this appointment, you have a perfect opportunity to ask an expert at Cincinnati Five Star Heating & Cooling for a few tips and tricks on keeping your HVAC system running more efficiently. Or if you have a few general questions about your HVAC equipment. Below are few common questions that many homeowners can start with asking:

What Is the Best Temperature To Set My Thermostat?

Honestly, it depends on what season your HVAC technician is visiting your home for a service call. For example, temperatures on a summer service call will be drastically different on a winter service call. Thus, resulting in conflicting information depending on the season of your service. Nevertheless, you can ask your HVAC technician for their advice on setting the temperature within your home for all four seasons. This will help homeowners better understand a range of temperatures their thermostat could be set depending on the season. 

Should I Update My Traditional Thermostat to a Wi-Fi Thermostat?

Homeowners living in the 21st century have access to the temperature within their homes at all times. A Wi-Fi thermostat lets homeowners access their thermostat inside and outside the home. Moreover, it can create schedules based on the needs of your household. Thus, saving homeowners time, energy, and, most importantly, money. If you want to learn more about upgrading your traditional thermostat to a Wi-Fi one, asking a technician during a service call is the best time to do it.

As a Homeowner, What Can I Do To Keep My HVAC System Running Efficiently? 

As easy and convenient as DIY repairs seem, they are more trouble than they are worth. Remember that HVAC technicians have to train and apprentice for several years before they become HVAC experts. Therefore, fixing your HVAC system is not something you should search for on YouTube. Instead, ask your HVAC technician some questions about your system’s general maintenance and how you can keep your system running in five star shape. Asking for advice on at-home HVAC maintenance can go a long way when trying to avoid serious issues or damages.
