How Do I Operate My Humidistat?

When you go on vacation or leave for more than a few days, set your humidistat to 60 and your thermostat to cool at 80 degrees. These settings will run your AC system the minimum required to ensure you will not have mildew growth.

When you are at home, set the humidistat to “on” and operate your thermostat normally. If you turn the humidistat to the “off” position, your air conditioner will not operate.

How Often Should I Change My Air Filter?

Most air filters should be changed every one to three months depending on the type of filter you use, if you have pets, and the size of your AC system.

Check your air filter on a regular basis. Dirty air filters reduce the amount of air flowing through a system and make your AC unit work harder to maintain the temperature.

How Often Should I Get an AC Checkup?

Residential customers should get an AC checkup once every year. Commercial customers should have their units serviced quarterly.

How Often Should My AC Unit Need to Be Replaced?

The average life of an air conditioning and heating system is 12 years. Most manufacturers give a 10-year all parts warranty, if registered.

How Often Do I Need a Duct Cleaning?

Getting your ductwork cleaned depends on each home's environmental conditions (i.e., animals, home renovations, illnesses, mold, and contaminants). Ductwork should be inspected annually.

What Can I Do to Minimize Mold, Mildew, and Bacteria in My Home?​

A PHI generator, UV light, and antimicrobial treatments all reduce mold, mildew, and bacteria in your home. Also, if you leave your home for extended periods of time, dehumidistats are a big help when it comes to preventing mold. Dehumidistats regulate the humidity in your house and help run your AC system more efficiently.
