HVAC Frequently Asked Questions

Answers From The Cardinal Heating & Cooling Team!

  • Is there a way for me to know if my AC or heater is about to break down?

    While heating and cooling system failures usually catch us by surprise, there are actually some telltale signs that you can look out for to determine if you need repairs.

    These signs include:

    • Loud, strange sounds when the system is operating
    • Burnt, musty, or other strange odors when the system is running
    • Poor airflow
    • Inability to heat or cool the space evenly
    • A sudden rise in energy bills

    Don’t wait until your heater or AC has stopped working altogether. Get in touch with a professional tech from Cardinal Heating & Cooling right away.

  • How do I choose a new AC or heater?
    Getting a new AC or heater is an exciting time. However, you’ll soon find out that you have a myriad of options, making the decision a bit harder for you. Whether you’re getting a system for a newly constructed home or replacing an old, inefficient one, our expert team can help you narrow down your choices. We take into consideration several factors when finding the right air conditioning or heating system for your property including your specific comfort needs and budget. We also consider if you have the time to construct a duct system or not. Rest assured that your system will be the right size for your home, energy efficient, and correctly installed.
  • I think my gas furnace is leaking. What should I do?
    If you smell a strong gas odor like a rotten egg smell or your carbon monoxide alarm has suddenly gone off, the first thing that you should do is to get out of your home immediately. You would also want to vacate anyone in the building as gas leaks can become very dangerous. Move to a safe distance and call 911 or your local gas company to report the leak. You may also call our team at (703) 755-0680 to help with any gas line repairs or if you need to connect a new gas line. Our technicians are licensed Master Gasfitters so you can have the peace of mind knowing that we provide safe, efficient gas line services.
