WHICH FILTERS SHOULD I USE?
We recommend mid-grade filters. Filters that are too thick (thick washable style, overpriced anti-allergen filters) restrict air flow causing stress on the equipment whereas filters too porous allow dust, etc, to pass through the filter.
*If allergies, etc are an issue, we recommend to still use a mid-grade filter with added options that can be installed in your system or ductwork.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CHANGE MY FILTERS?
Filters should be changed monthly during summertime if the property is occupied (three month rated filters are based on a national average of usage and not Arizona standards) and every two to three months during wintertime.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE A CHECK-UP DONE ON MY SYSTEM?
Check-ups should be done twice a year. There are several types of air conditioning and heating systems in the valley with different types of components being used in heating and cooling modes. Preventative maintenance is proven to provide the best efficiency, can expand the life of your equipment, and help prevent costly repairs created by something small that could’ve been prevented.
WHAT’S THE FIRST THING I SHOULD DO IF THE SYSTEM IS NOT HEATING OR COOLING?
MY ELECTRICAL BREAKER FOR MY A/C OR HEATER IS TRIPPING. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Keep it turned off. Breakers normally trip for a reason. If you keep resetting it you could create more damage to electrical or A/C or heating system costing you thousands.
