Most people take their heating system for granted, at least until something goes wrong with it. If you understand how your HVAC system works, there are some tasks you can do yourself without needing to call a professional. Here are the basic components of your heating system.

Heating Source

Most homes in North America are heated by a central furnace, using either electricity or natural gas to heat the air. In a gas furnace, the gas is combusted, which causes a metal heat exchanger to grow hot. The air above the heat exchanger gets hot and a furnace fan blows this air into your ductwork. In an electric furnace, coils get heated, but the same principles apply.
If something goes wrong with your furnace and you need help in Las Vegas, Mastermind Mechanical LLC stands ready to provide assistance. We have been in business for over 15 years.

Ductwork

Your home has ductwork, located in the crawlspace, basement or attic. Hot air blows through the ducts and comes out through various registers. This results in your entire home being heated unless you have closed some registers or they are blocked.

Thermostat

Central furnaces are connected to a thermostat in your home. The thermostat monitors the temperature of air in your home. Once the temperature has dropped below where you set it, it will send a signal to the furnace telling it to turn on. The thermostat signals the furnace when the right temperature has been reached.

Return Air

Your home has a return air register. Cooler air enters this register and returns to the furnace, where it is once again heated and sent into your home.

It’s important to hire a trusted HVAC contractor to repair and maintain your commercial HVAC system. The good news is finding a reliable contractor doesn’t have to be difficult. Try these five tips to help you choose the right commercial HVAC contractor for your property in Las Vegas.

1. Get Referrals

Contact other business owners and property managers for referrals. Ask specific questions about their level of satisfaction with the services. Did the technicians arrive on time? How long did it take them to complete the service? Were the technicians professional? Was the cost of the service more than the estimate?

2. Review HVAC Company Websites

Go to each company’s website and review it to learn more about the business. A good HVAC website includes a list of services, scheduling information, and current specials.

3. Read Customer Reviews

Search engines and third-party providers give customers the opportunity to review companies. Look for reviews of each HVAC company on the internet. Read the good and bad reviews. Reviews can tell you everything you need to know about customer service.

4. Contact Prospective Companies

Make a list of companies, and then call each one to determine if it can meet your needs. Ask questions about estimates, services, and policies. During the phone consultation, find out if the company has the equipment to install, repair, or maintain your HVAC system.

5. Verify Licensing and Insurance

All commercial HVAC companies should be licensed, insured, and bonded. These requirements protect you if something goes wrong. When you contact a company, find out if it meets the basic insurance and bonding requirements in your area. Be sure to also ask for proof to verify that the company is actually licensed, insured, and bonded.
