How often should I change my air filters?
We recommend that you check the durability of your filter. For example a pleated filter can last up to 60-90 days. If you're using less expensive filters or polyester filters you will want to change it once a month. Check the manufacturing recommendations as well. If you can see that your filter is dirty before those recommended times, it does need to be changed more frequently. Keep in mind the more often you change your filters, the better it is for your system.
How do I know if my unit is under warranty?
You'll need to know how old your system is. If your system is older than 10 years, you most likely have no manufacture warranty. If you ever have any doubts, call your manufacture company or local service tech and be prepared to give them your serial number. Most manufacture warranties cover up to 5 years with an extended warranty covering up to 10. We encourage clients that if you know your service is nearing these ages, to have a service evaluation done.
You'll know if you are covered under a home warranty if you have signed up for it and are paying for it every month. To know if a service is covered, we recommend calling your home warranty and then calling us.
Why should I replace my R22 Freon with R410A?
R-22 refrigerant and equipment are being phased out to reduce the impact on our ozone. As time passes, replacement parts and refrigerant for old R-22 units will become harder to find and more expensive, so replacing your unit now can save you some money and issues in the future.
Why is my AC system freezing up?
Some of the most common causes of your system freezing up are being low on freon, and restricted air flow, possibly due to a dirty filter. Let your evaporative unit thaw out before expecting a service tech to fix this issue.
