How can I increase the efficiency and life of my AC and heating system?2016-10-31T12:44:37-05:00

Here are a few tips on how you can expand the life of your heating and cooling systems:

  • Clean and replace your filters or air ducts frequently
  • Keep the blower on the “on” position. This allows constant air movement and better filtration throughout your home or business.

Install drapes, shades, or shutters in your home or business on windows that can be exposed to sunlight or outside elements. This will allow your home to trap the proper amount of heat or cold during the winter or summer months, and allow your HVAC system to perform at a steady rate without being overworked.

How do I know if my system is working properly and efficiently?2016-10-31T12:43:56-05:00

If your system is not making any strange noises, if it is cooling and heating sufficiently, if it works quickly to cool down or heat up, and if your utility bills have been steady, then you probably have a well-functioning system in your home or business. However, if the opposite to any of these factors is occurring, calling the experts at Air-Bon to come check out your system is highly recommended. We will always be able to identify the problem and come up with a cost effective solution.

What size air conditioning and heating system do I need?2016-10-31T12:43:33-05:00

One of our Air-Bon professionals can assist you in determining the right size of HVAC system for your home or business. This is mainly due to the fact that there is not a one-size-fits-all system. Also, having a system that is too small or too big for your space can ultimately waste you money and energy. Efficiency comes with finding the perfect system that will heat and cool your home or business properly, effectively, and economically. Because each building or structure is built differently, leave it to the experts to help you figure out what will be the best fit for you.

Should I have my air ducts cleaned?2016-10-31T12:42:53-05:00

It is extremely important to have all air ducts cleaned, cleared, and free from obstructions. Not only does it allow your HVAC system to run better and more efficiently, it also reduces health risk factors, such as allergies, hay fever, and asthma. Removing debris that can be a breeding ground for germs, pollen, bacteria, dust mites, and animal dander will ultimately benefit your health and your systems altogether.

What kind of regular maintenance does my AC and heating system need?2016-10-31T12:41:57-05:00

With most HVAC systems, it is highly important to make sure that there is always an unrestricted air flow. This means any dirt, debris, dust, or fibers stuck in the ventilation or system could be a serious problem. Because of this, it is extremely crucial to maintain your systems by cleaning and clearing out any restrictions, as well as having one of our Air-Bon experts check on your systems just to ensure that things are running smoothly and cleanly. Other maintenance tune-ups can be spotted and repaired by our professionals, as well, which can prolong the life span of your AC and heating units, as well as better the health of your family or customers.

Is there anything I should check prior to calling a professional to service my systems?2016-10-31T12:41:30-05:00

We at Air-Bon encourage you to call us at any time with questions about your HVAC system, no matter how minor or major the problem or question may be. However, before calling, you can consider checking to make sure your AC or heater is turned on. You could also check to see if the breakers and disconnects are turned on, and that the thermostat is set correctly. In addition, if you hear any strange sounds or smell any unusual smells from the system, take note of that as well.

How often should I have my equipment serviced?2016-10-31T12:41:03-05:00

The experts and professionals at Air-Bon highly recommend that your HVAC systems be serviced, maintained, or repaired at least once a year. We suggest considering having Air-Bon service your systems once in the Fall and once in the Spring, mainly to prepare your home or business for the upcoming winter or summer months. With proper service and maintenance, it will prevent unforeseen or unexpected problems with your system.

How often should I replace my air filter?2016-10-31T12:40:21-05:00

Depending on the type of filter you have will determine if you need to replace your air filters on a weekly or even monthly basis. In general, though, changing out your filters at least once a month is highly recommended. Keeping a fresh filter in the system will keep your system running smoothly, and keep your air cleaner to breathe.

Why do I need to change my air filter regularly?2016-10-31T12:39:46-05:00

Changing your air filters regularly allows your systems to run and perform at its highest possible efficiency. In addition, it allows the air quality in your home or business to be cleaner, purer, with less dust and allergens that could potentially be irritating to your health. The experts at Air-Bon can assist you in figuring out the best air filters you will need for your specific system.
