Q: Should I cover my outdoor unit during the winter?
A: Your outside unit is constructed to handle the harshest of winters so it is not a good idea to cover your unit. If an individual were to mistakenly turn on the air conditioner when your machine is covered, it can damage the condenser and all of its components.

Q: What should I set my thermostat to: on or auto?
A: You really should utilize the ‘auto setting’. This means that air will be spread throughout your home on an ‘as need’ basis. It is the more energy efficient setting of the two.

Also, as a homeowner , you need to replace your filters as often as needed. Make sure to work with filters that have high efficiency ratings for you to keep your system clean. Your system will need to breathe so do not shut your register or vents. Keep clutter away from your exterior unit. You need to allow for proper circulation.

Q: I just bought a new heating and cooling unit. Should I have a programmable thermostat installed too?
A: People who have installed these devices are happy that they did. The reason is due to the fact that they are saving money.

Outside of saving you money on your energy costs, a programmable thermostat can also provide further comfort. It can heat up your home before you get out of bed in the morning!

Q: My furnace/air conditioner does work though it is outdated. Why should I change it?
A: Regardless of whether your heating and cooling system is getting the job done, when it is more than 12 years old, it quits working as effectively. For that reason, you are paying more on your monthly utility bill in order for it to keep your house comfortable. New systems can save as much as 50% on operating expenses so they pay themselves off in a very short time. It might not be an investment decision that you planned on but you will be glad that you did. An additional benefit of a brand-new unit is that it will keep your home more comfortable.

Q: I like to landscape my lawn in the spring. Can I plant near my exterior unit?
A: When you landscape your lawn, you must pay close attention to the space around your exterior air unit. Be sure your plants are at a minimum of 18 inches to 2 feet away from your unit. This includes the area on the sides of your unit and above your unit. Your outside unit needs suitable air circulation around it in order for it to run the way that you want it to. House owners often make the error of planting too close to their unit or failing to remember to trim the vegetation around their unit. This has triggered costly and unnecessary repairs.

Q: The temperature inside of my home is fine but my unit’s fan seems to be working all of the time. What should I do?
A: More than likely, your thermostat is set to the ‘on’ setting. It is best to have it on the ‘auto’ setting. This setting will save power. The other setting, or the ‘on’ setting, does create a good even temperature in your house but it takes a lot of energy to accomplish this. It carries this out by making your fan blow continuously which equates into much higher electricity expenses. The ‘auto’ setting should be sufficient for you to keep your home comfortable.
