Regardless of the kind of HVAC system you have, it is always best to have your air conditioning unit serviced during early Spring and your heating system serviced in the Fall for optimum performance.
In most cases, you should replace your HVAC unit’s air filter once a month, but some types of pleated air filters can be changed every 3 months or as recommended by the manufacturer.
Maintaining proper humidity levels inside your home is very important. Too much humidity affects all wood surfaces in your home and can cause damage to the wood surfaces. Too little humidity can cause a sore throat, dry skin, itching and static electricity build up.
A two-stage or variable speed furnace is an energy efficient, low maintenance unit that runs at different speeds to efficiently control the flow of heated or cooled air throughout your entire home. This creates more comfortable, balanced temperatures and humidity throughout your home.
There are many benefits to using a variable-speed furnace, including better temperature control, better humidity levels, better air distribution throughout your home or office and increased comfort. In addition, a variable-speed furnace uses about two-thirds less electricity and is a much quieter operating system and it produces cleaner air output.
