HVAC Frequently Asked Questions


How often should I change my filters?

Filters should be changed every month- sooner if they are visibly dirty. This seems simple, but it can make a big difference in your HVAC system. Dirty filters cause your units to work harder and will cause damage down the road. Plus, all the extra work leads to a higher power bill, so do yourself a favor and change those filters regularly!

How long does a unit typically last?

New air conditioning units have an average lifespan of 10-12 years. It is common to have small issues before this time, but regular HVAC tune-ups can help. 

What brands do you service?

We service all HVAC brands. 

Why should I have regular tune-ups?

Regular tune-ups will extend the life of many parts on your air conditioner. When a part is going bad, we can let you know so that you can replace it before it becomes an inconvenience. Preventive maintenance will also keep your HVAC system running as efficiently as possible.

What can I do to reduce HVAC usage?

As mentioned earlier, changing your filters regularly and having preventive maintenance done every spring and fall will save you money in the long run. Keeping your outdoor unit clean and grass-free is also very important. Grass is a common culprit when an outdoor coil is dirty and less efficient. An obvious way to save energy is to program your thermostat to run less while you are away and turn the temperature up/down in the summer/winter months. Our last recommendation to reduce your HVAC usage would be to use your ceiling fan. It's simple, but it works!
