Change Your Air Filter Regularly

Check your filter every month, especially during heavy use months (winter and summer). If the filter looks dirty after a month, change it. At a minimum, change the filter every 3 months. A dirty filter will slow down air flow and make the system work harder to keep you warm or cool – wasting energy. A clean filter will also prevent dust and dirt from building up in the system – leading to expensive maintenance and/or early system failure.

Tune Up Your HVAC Equipment Yearly

Just as a tune-up for your car can improve your gas mileage, a yearly tune-up of your heating and cooling system can improve efficiency and comfort. See our Comfort Club maintenance page to learn more.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I replace my air conditioning and heating system?

The first thing to consider is your current systems age, if it is 10 years or older the recommendation to replace should always be considered due to new efficiency standards and technology advancements. If your system is currently broke consider the repair cost versus replacement.

Technologies you need to know about:

Variable Speed Blowers, Multi Capacity Systems, Two Stage Gas Operation, SEER Ratings and Zoning Options. These are items you should completely understand before choosing a system.

How efficient could my new system be?

This decision should be based on 2 things, how long do you plan on being in the house and your budget. The higher the efficiency of the equipment the more it costs. However, the higher the efficiency the faster the payback or return on your investment will happen. If moving to a higher efficiency, rating will not create a return on your investment. We usually will not recommend spending more money, unless we are dealing with specific comfort issue that only the higher efficiency units will address.
