Top 4 FAQs About HVAC
When it comes to your home’s heating and cooling maintenance, you might find yourself with a lot of questions. Don’t worry! We’ve compiled a list of some of our most frequently asked questions to help you along the way.
How many times a year should I have my unit inspected?
We recommend that you get your unit inspected at least twice a year. Once at the beginning of spring, to insure that it will be good to keep you cool in the hot months, and once at the beginning of fall before the cold weather kicks in. However, if you’re experiencing issues or weird sounds with your unit, it’s okay to get it inspected an extra time.

How often should I clean my filter?
You should change your air filter at least 3 times a year! But, it’s good practice to check them monthly and change them as needed. Replacing a dirty, clogged filter with a clean new one can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by 5-10%.
We understand that life is busy and want to help save you the extra trip to the store for a new air filter. So, we’ve teamed up with the folks at Indoor Wellness!

How do I know if I need to clean out my air ducts?
Cleaning out your air ducts can give you a cleaner, fresher air, and help eliminate impurities that can lead to allergic reactions, difficulty breathing, infections, and disease. You should get your air ducts cleaned if:
- You notice a smell in your home.
- Your registers are dirty.
- You have allergies or asthma.
- You have pets.
- You have smokers in the house.
Our air duct cleaning service can help! Our technicians use a video inspection system to evaluate your home’s ductwork. We look for dirt, debris, animal droppings, mold, moisture, and more to determine whether cleaning is necessary to improve the quality of your home’s air. We use an advanced brush and vacuum system to scrub your duct system clean. Next, we’ll sanitize your ducts with an EPA-recommended antimicrobial fogger, leaving your home fresh and clean.
