Adjust your thermostat

If you’re ready to save a little additional money on the weekends, adjust your thermostat to settings closer to the weather outside. More updated models include many programmable options that give you more control over your home’s temperature than ever before. You can schedule the thermostat to only use your HVAC when you’re home and present to enjoy it, so that when you’re off on business or a needed vacation, your thermostat is keeping energy costs cheaper. Every degree counts!

Don’t forget about the air filter

With all the other parts of your heating and cooling system to look after, it’s easy to fail to care for your air filter also. But it’s an important, monthly project that can save you more than a little time and money in the future.

When you cleanse or change your filter every month or so, it lives on free from debris and is checked more regularly for wear and tear.

With our team, you can lower the probability of your HVAC breaking down, and keep those air filters clean.
