Frequently asked questions

Do heating and air conditioning systems need regular maintainace?


The simple answer is yes. Regular maintenance services and tune-ups can extend the lifespan of your system, increase its working efficiency, and allow technicians the opportunity to catch and address minor issues before they become major problems. This ultimately saves you money in the long-run, not to mention time and stress. When it comes to maintaining your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, making sure there is unrestricted air flow is the most important.




How often do I need air conditioning maintenance?


At Dedicated Cooling, we recommend that you schedule maintenance services twice a year—once before the start of the summer months and once before winter begins. This can help you avoid unnecessary problems during the hottest and coldest months of the year.




What size air conditioning and heating system should I have?


Selecting the right size of air conditioning system is important as it can improve your home’s energy efficiency, reduce costs for homeowners, and ensure that your home stays comfortable all year-round. There is no one-size-fits-all rule for choosing the right size air conditioning and heating system; instead, a trained technician can look at various factors, including the size and construction of your home, and use this information to determine what size air conditioning and heating system you should have. At Dedicated Cooling , we provide free in-home energy analysis services to help you select the right system for your unique needs.
