As it’s getting warmer outside and air conditioners are being used more, we want to share five FAQs (and their answers) that every homeowner should know!
How can I determine if our HVAC system is running too much?
Most systems should run 2-3 cycles per hour.
Is there a recommended temperature that will save me the most money each month?
The cooler you set it in the summer and the warmer you set it in the winter the more energy you will use. Each person has their own comfort range, and we recommend that each customer finds their optimal temperature and leave the thermostat there for the occupied periods of the day.
Can a smart thermostat help me save money each month?
Yes, they most definitely can if you use them properly. Typically, a smart thermostat will adjust automatically to your heating and cooling patterns over a short period of time. By automatically making adjustments, it saves you money!
How often should I schedule heating and cooling services for my HVAC system?
We recommend having your heating and cooling system serviced twice a year to keep it working at maximum efficiency. This way we can find and fix smaller problems before they become larger problems. By joining our Front-of-the-Line Family Plan, you automatically receive two precision tune-ups per year as well as a multitude of other benefits.
What maintenance can I do myself on my furnace and air conditioner?
Check your air filter on a monthly basis and change it whenever it’s dirty. Flush your condensate drain line when you check your filter, especially in the summer months when algae growth is more prevalent.
