How Often Should I Replace My Furnace Air Filter?
The life of a furnace filter will vary from house to house. The "type" of filter present will also need to be taken into consideration. Each household will be different in many ways. For example, some people may smoke, some households may have pets, some households may be under temporary construction etc. How often the equipment operates plays a major role in the life of the furnace filter. Typically a 1" pleated filter will generally need to be changed every 30-90 days depending on the application. A 5" air filter will tend to last longer. The average life of a 5" filter is 6 months to a year, again depending on the application. It is very important to look at all of the factors and change the filter accordingly.

When Changing Out Equipment, Should I Replace All Of The Equipment At The Same Time?
When it's time to replace your equipment, whether it be a furnace, air conditioner, air handler etc., there are many things to consider. Cost, efficiency, age of the existing equipment and so much more. If by chance the furnace is, lets say 17 years old and the air conditioner is the same or around the same age, it would be in your best interest to replace them both.

Evaporator coils, compressors, variable speed motors, certain circuit boards etc. Depending on the age of the equipment and the extent of the repair, it may be more economical to upgrade the system altogether.
How Important Is It To Have A Carbon Monoxide Detector In The Home?
When operating equipment such as furnaces, generators, stoves, water heaters, fireplaces and space heaters for example, the proper ventilation is required. Without proper ventilation, these energy sources can become extremely hazardous. Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas that is odorless, colorless and deadly. Over the years, many have died from this deadly gas simply because a carbon monoxide detector was not present to detect extreme levels that were life threatening. A carbon monoxide detector is without question a very important device to have and MUST be present in every home.
Should I Cover My Air Conditioner Or Heat Pump In The Winter Time?
This is a question that is often asked. The unit outside known as the "condenser", is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions. It is not necessary to cover the unit. Covering the "entire" unit will often trap moisture and cause damage. However, if choosing to cover the unit, it is recommended that a custom cover is ordered from the distributor which is designed specifically for that particular model. This will give the condenser a clean look with the proper airflow required, keep dirt and debris from getting inside and won't damage the system. Always remember to uncover the condenser in the springtime.
What Type Of Thermostat Should I Choose?
There are several types of thermostats on the market today. They range from the simple and basic non-programmable style to the more complex smart-communicating wifi thermostats. Choosing the proper thermostat for the application depends on the type of equipment present as well as the customers' preference. It's important to get the maximum performance out of the equipment and the correct thermostat will help achieve this goal. It's always a good idea to have a professional evaluate and see which thermostat best suits the application.
