We started a series specifically with our customers in mind so you can go into the heating season with peace of mind that your indoor air quality will be performing at its best. Here are some simple maintenance tips, and how we can assist in keeping your indoor air quality (IAQ) in check.
CHange your Filters
Your HVAC system not only keeps you at a comfortable temperature, it also keeps the IAQ in your home clean and healthy. This is why it’s important to change your air filter regularly. The general rule of thumb is to change your filters every 2-3 months, but this can vary depending on your filter size, MERV rating, pets in your home, and if you have allergies.
Changing your filters in your HVAC system is key to helping prevent and reduce breakdowns on your equipment. Changing air filters is simple – remove and dispose of your old filter and clean up any debris. Then insert the new filter with the arrow pointing towards the furnace. This quick maintenance tip will keep your system running for the long run and improve the air in your home. Replacing your filters properly and on-time keeps the air in your home clean and free of debris and dust.
You can order filters through a subscription or in bulk on our website. We carry all brands and sizes to ensure we have one that fits your furnace. Shop here to order filters and receive free shipping on all orders.
Schedule Fall HVAC Maintenance
As fall approaches with cooler temperatures, it’s important to have your HVAC system inspected by a team of professionals to ensure it does its job when you need it most. Here are some ways you can help prepare your HVAC system for the fall:
- Remember to check and replace your thermostat batteries once a year
- Make sure your unit is clean and free of dust and debris that can block the airflow in your system
- Schedule a fall furnace inspection to ensure its properly checked over by a qualified service technician

Improve Humidity Levels
An important part of your HVAC system is humidity control and air quality. A home with good humidity levels has many benefits: the air quality is improved, it combats allergies, provides a healthy environment for the skin and respiratory system, and leaves your home feeling more comfortable. Air purifiers are also important in keeping the air in your home clean as it removes particles and pollutants, such as pet dander, dust, mold, and pollen.
We not only have trained professionals to keep your HVAC working correctly, we also carry whole home regulators specifically designed to keep your home healthy and comfortable. Check out our air purifiers and humidifiers to keep your IAQ in check.
Save on Energy Bills
When it comes to saving money on your energy bill, it all comes down to efficiency. For starters, if your current HVAC system is anywhere from 15-20 years old, you should consider replacing it entirely. Newer models of HVAC equipment are much more energy efficient and will save you money long-term. Here are some other ways you can save on your energy bills:
- A programmable thermostat also helps in keeping the ideal temperature for saving energy and money.
- Make sure all of the vents in your home are open to allow effective circulation throughout your home.
- Increasing the insulation in your home will help climate control and keep it at a proper temperature.
