How often should I change my filter?

Depending on your filter type, filters should be changed or cleaned approximately every 3 months. This will assist in not only maintaining your furnace so you get the longest life out of it as possible, but also help reduce any airborne allergens.


How often should I get my furnace and/or Air Conditioner checked and cleaned?

Annual maintenance on your HVAC system is so very important. Think of it as you do a car, you need oil changes periodically as well as routine maintenance to keep it working and running in good condition. Your HVAC system works the same way. If you do not maintain it, it will not operate properly and efficiently. It will also not last nearly as long as it is designed to. Again, it is crucial to have your furnace cleaned and safety checked every fall and your air conditioner serviced every spring.
