Yes, as heating and air conditioning technicians, we would like to remind you of how important it is to keep the air filter clean. This means that you need to replace it every 1-3 months, depending on how often you use it. Or, if you have a reusable filter, then you’ll have to clean it and let it fully dry before replacing it.

When you’re looking for a new home comfort system, you’ve probably already got a pretty good idea of the basic systems out there. There are furnaces, for heating, and central air conditioners, for cooling. For the most part, air conditioners and heaters are completely separate systems, although they do typically share the same blower fan to distribute air throughout your home.
There is, however, another option that uses the same components to heat the home as it does to cool them, and that’s the heat pump. Heat pumps actually use refrigeration for both heating and cooling, and you’ll see what’s so great about this in the guide below. For more information, contact our friendly team!
Sometimes, a homeowner upgrades their air conditioning and heating systems only to leave the same aging thermostat on the wall. As your technician may likely tell you, this shouldn’t have any effect on the way your heater or air conditioner operates as long as the thermostat is compatible (as it will still be calibrated and able to detect changes in temperature). However, you are missing out on the opportunity to save big time.
Whether your heating and air conditioning systems are brand new or ten years old, we recommend upgrading that wall thermostat to a smart thermostat you can control with your phone or tablet. Learn more about the benefits of smart thermostats and why you should make that upgrade in today’s guide.
