Why Should You Replace Your A/C Filter?
The air filter is one of the essential components of your HVAC system. Its function is to capture airborne pollutants such as dust and dander from getting inside your unit. However, mold, dirt, and other debris accumulated in the filter can circulate back into your space, contaminating your home’s air quality. Plus, a dirty and clogged A/C filter puts extra pressure on your unit, which can lead to high energy bills and other cooling problems.

Change the battery in your thermostat or controller as a first step in several fast solutions. If you are using a hand-held controller, be sure you are standing close to your system and that there is no obstruction in the path between the controller and the system. Avoid pressing the buttons quickly as this can overburden the controller’s tiny computer with commands. Instead, press the buttons slowly and thoughtfully. Contact us to schedule a call if you’re still having issues or if your controller is showing an error code.
The size of air conditioner that will be ideal for your home depends on a number of factors. After learning how you plan to use your air conditioner and taking measurements of the rooms in your house that need heating and cooling, we can determine the best system for the task. This is all part of your obligation-free in-home consultation.
The blue and red stars on air conditioners denote cooling and heating, respectively; the more stars, the more energy-efficient the air conditioner. On the label of some air conditioners, there is a specific “Super efficiency rating” that denotes the air conditioner’s increased efficiency.
Another significant detail printed on the label is:
Capacity Output kW – You can find out how much cooling or heating power the air conditioner has by looking at its capacity output kw.
Power Input kW – This informs you of the power consumption required to run the air conditioner; the lower the amount, the more effective.
To perform successfully and efficiently throughout their lifetime, the system needs routine maintenance. Regular maintenance should not be neglected because it can lead to decreased performance, greater energy use, and a higher risk of malfunction.
To guarantee a long life system, routine maintenance is essential. For all new hydronic and air conditioning systems, we advise a general service once a year, and twice a year for older systems.
