Frequently asked questions:

  • How often should I have my air conditioning/heating system serviced? We suggest twice a year: in the spring and in the fall. Regular check-ups can identify issues before they turn into serious problems.
  • Should my thermostat be set to "auto" or "on"? Setting the thermostat to "auto" is the most efficient setting. The fan operates only when the temperature requires it. The only advantage to using the "on" setting is that the air is constantly filtered, resulting in an even temperature throughout the house; however this will lessen the life of the motor.
  • Should I cover my outdoor unit in the winter? No. Air conditioners are built to withstand the outdoor environment and should not be covered.
  • How close may I plant shrubs or flowers to the outdoor unit? Keep plants at least 2 feet from the air conditioner to allow for proper air circulation. Without room for air circulation, the unit may overheat.

Beat the heat!

When an air conditioner fails during the summer, it's a major interruption to your daily life and comfort. Having an established relationship with a reliable heating and air conditioning company is a must!

Questions to ask yourself:

  • Is your air conditioner running all day but your house is just not cool enough?
  • Does every room seem to have a different temperature?
  • Have your utility bills absolutely skyrocketed?

If you are experiencing any of these issues, we have solutions for you.
