Frequently Asked Questions

Do ceiling fans help conserve energy?

Heat rises! During hotter months, the heat in your home will rise to the ceiling. To help move that hot air out of your home, fans can come in handy. Both ceiling fans and standing fans help move the air around the room, creating a cooler environment. Also, good circulation helps your home maintain an even temperature, giving your HVAC system a chance to work less.

Is it okay to plant trees and shrubbery around your home for shade?

Some people advocate that planting trees or shrubbery around your house is a great way to save on energy costs by creating shade around your home. While this is a great idea, make sure that shrubbery and branches are a safe distance from your unit. There needs to be enough space around the unit to allow service people to freely work on the unit. Also, shrubbery and branches could get into the system and hinder performance and possibly lead to permanent damage!

Can programmable thermostats save energy?

My A/C unit sounds like is grinding, what does that mean?

Even the smallest bend or imbalance can cause a blade to scrape the fan cage. If that’s the case, it’s best to have a licensed technician come and take a look.

How often should I check my air filter?

The first day of each month is a perfect time to inspect your air filters. During the summer months, its especially important to check your air filters monthly and change them if they are dirty. We often receive "not working" calls just because of dirty air filters.
