Stay Cool with Preventive Care

Regular maintenance is key to keeping your air conditioning system running efficiently. Schedule annual tune-ups to ensure your unit is properly cleaned, lubricated, and inspected for any potential issues. This simple step can extend the lifespan of your HVAC system and prevent costly breakdowns.

Change Those Air Filters

Clogged air filters not only compromise indoor air quality but also force your system to work harder, leading to higher energy bills and premature wear and tear. Aim to replace disposable filters every three months, or as recommended by the manufacturer.

Keep It Clear

  • Remove any debris or vegetation around the outdoor unit to ensure proper airflow.
  • Trim back shrubs or trees that may be blocking the unit.
  • Keep the area around the indoor vents clear to allow for optimal air circulation.

Programmable Thermostats: Your Energy-Saving Ally

Investing in a programmable thermostat can help you save big on energy costs. Set it to automatically adjust the temperature when you’re away or asleep, and you’ll reduce unnecessary cooling and save up to 10% on heating and cooling expenses.
