If you do not change your air filter, the air conditioner will continue to draw in dust and other airborne materials until it becomes clogged. This will cause the system to work much harder, resulting in higher utility bills, air conditioner freeze-ups, and possible compressor and/or motor failure.
For most residential homeowners, the furnace should be serviced once during the spring and once during the fall. For commercial furnaces, we recommend major services during the spring and fall, with minor services interspersed year-round.
If your furnace is an older model that has a pilot light, verify that the pilot light is on. If it is a newer furnace with an electronic ignition or glow plug, you should be able to hear an electronic buzzing sound or see an orange glow within the cabinet. If you do not observe any evidence of these things, call us to schedule a repair.
We highly recommend buying a programmable thermostat, because they are more energy-efficient and will enable you to save money on your utility bills. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you can save as much as 10% a year by turning your thermostat back 7°-10°F for 8 hours a day. A programmable thermostat makes it much easier to do this automatically.
