Frequently Asked Questions
What is HVAC?
HVAC stands for “heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.” It’s the central system used to provide heating and cooling to buildings.
Why is regular maintenance important?
Regular maintenance is crucial because it keeps your HVAC system running smoothly, and prevents costly repairs, saving you money in the long run.
Are all HVAC filters the same?
No. Filters for residential spaces are generally smaller than larger ones used in commercial buildings like businesses and hospitals. Choosing the right air filter has an important impact on your air quality. We’ll help you find the right one for your space.
How is the efficiency of heating and cooling equipment measured?
We use multiple systems to determine the efficiency of your HVAC equipment. We employ everything from the EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) to the MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value). Call us now to learn more.
Why is the temperature uneven in my property?
A draft, a broken HVAC system—these are all possible causes of fluctuating temperatures. Schedule an assessment with Traill Heating & Cooling to learn what’s troubling your HVAC system.
How do I choose the right humidifier?
The right humidifier for you depends on your needs. There are many different humidifier types, including cool mist, warm mist, ultrasonic, evaporative, and vaporizers. Consult with one of our professionals for recommendations on the right humidifier for you.
How often should I check my air filter?
You should be checking your air filter about every 30 days. For best results, arrange regular check-ups with us to make maintenance a breeze.
How often should I clean my air filter?
Generally, you should clean your home air filter about every 90 days. This timeframe can vary depending on the number of residents or pets.

Residential air filters should be cleaned every 20-45 days, depending on the amount of foot traffic the building receives.
