Frequently Asked Questions

How often does my filter need to be changed?

Our professionals recommend you change your air filter on your central unit at least every six months. By doing so, you will save on your energy cost as well as extend the life cycle of your unit. For even better quality, change your air filter every three months. Keep in mind, all the air inside your home continues to recirculate through your filter in your indoor unit.   

The design of an air filter is intended to keep your air clean for breathing by removing dust particles which will clog your filter, causing it to run less efficiently and costing more to operate. If you fail to change the filter promptly, your unit could fail to work.    

How Often Should I Have My Central Air Conditioning Unit Serviced? 

We suggest you schedule a tune-up at least twice yearly. Typically, tune-ups should be at the beginning of the air conditioning and heating season to verify that your unit is working properly before it gets too hot or cold. However, you can schedule a tune-up at any time.  

Are Seasonal Air Conditioning Tune-Up Plans Worth The Cost?

Each spring before you begin using your air conditioner; you should get a tune-up to guarantee your system is ready for the hot season ahead.  By investing a small amount twice a year, you are saving yourself a lot of energy cost by operating your system at its peak efficiency.

By making this investment, you are also avoiding potential costly repairs by identifying and doing repairs before they lead to large ones. Many homeowners fail to realize that without the recommended twice a year tune-ups, their warranty could be valid. 

Will My Warranty Cover A Tune-Up?

No. Extended warranties do not cover the expense of a regular air conditioning maintenance. Tune-ups are a part of regular maintenance and as mentioned above, required by manufacturers to keep the warranty in effect.
