Saving Money on Heating & Cooling

One of the most frequently asked questions is “How can I save money on my heating & cooling bill”?

The answer …DIRTY FILTERS!!! Over half our service calls are filter related. It is the most common problem in the heating & cooling industry.

In air conditioning season, a dirty filter holds back air flow to the point that it reduces the systems capacity by 40%!!! So if you have a 3 ton system you may only be getting 2 ton out of it…that’s not so good. If the air flow is reduced too much, then the evaporator coil will freeze into a block of ice. Again….that’s not so good.

In heating season, your furnace will have to run much longer to warm your house if it can’t get enough air across the heat exchanger. And that wastes fuel and electric (your money). Over time, dirty filters can actually destroy your furnace or air conditioning systems.

We suggest that you change your filters at least every 30 days.

This WILL save money and that is SOOO good.

 

Winter Furnace Maintenance

When the chilly autumn nights are upon us, it is time to make an appointment to have your annual furnace check up done. Efficient operation is the result of good regular maintenance and by having this yearly cleaning & inspection done it can prevent your system from wearing itself out, stop working altogether, or pump carbon monoxide into your home.
Our furnace maintenance inspection consists of:

  • Inspect thermostat for proper operation.
  • Inspect filter.
  • Inspect and clean gas pilot and ignition system.
  • Clean motor and blower.
  • Inspect blower operation.
  • Clean burners and set for proper combustion and ignition.
  • Inspect gas piping to furnace.
  • Inspect all electrical components, controls and safety systems.
  • Inspect chimney and flue for proper draft and debris.
  • Inspect heat exchanger for possible cracks. (A cracked heat exchanger can introduce carbon monoxide into your home)
  • Safety test for carbon monoxide.

Don’t wait until your heating system breaks down to call for service. A clean, well adjusted heating system will save you money on fuel, prolong the life of your furnace and provide
reliable indoor comfort when the outdoor temperature drops.
