1. What can I do to lower my energy bills?
There are many things you can do with your HVAC system to lower your energy bills. Installing a programmable thermostat helps to keep your home temperature regulated. When you’re not at home or between certain hours you can adjust the temperature as needed. Make sure your doors and windows are sealed properly so it doesn’t let outside air in. In fact, having your home properly insulated, especially your attic will be a huge asset. Using your ceiling fans will also help increase air flow and keep your home feeling cooler all summer long.
2. Why is preventative maintenance important?
Your HVAC system undergoes long periods of intense operation. No matter the brand or size, it is expected to wear over the years. And, the lack of regular maintenance on your equipment can accelerate that process. By changing filters and performing routine maintenance and inspections as required, you will extend the life of your HVAC system and increase their efficiency.

3. How can I improve the indoor air quality (IAQ) in my home?
The air quality in your home is a major factor in determining your overall health. To help you and your family breathe easier, make an effort to improve IAQ.
- Change your filter regularly.
- Install a whole-house humidifier to increase relative humidity during the dry winter months.

4. What are the benefits of a programmable thermostat?
Installing a programmable thermostat in your home helps you take control of how often your system runs. Overall, controlling how much energy you use for heating and cooling your home. If used correctly, it can help you improve energy efficiency and save money on your utility bills. Some of the features on a programmable thermostat include: an allergen defender, a feels like feature to create the most accurate temperature, an app to adjust the temperature from your phone, a smart away mode that uses GPS tracking, alerts and reminders to ensure total comfort, and integration with your Alexa, Google Assistant, or Siri.
