Air filtration is a top concern for many, especially those with young children or those with respiratory conditions. And, if air filtration is not a priority in your home, it most certainly should be. The air you breathe can have a direct effect on both your short term and long term health. Most HVAC units require you to change your air filter every 30 days, or 90 days at most. However, you should note that not all air filters and not all air filtration systems are created equal.
Perhaps you’ve noticed that your HVAC system isn’t regulating your home’s temperature the way that it should. If you have an HVAC system with some years behind it, you may be tempted to think it’s time for a new one, one that is more energy efficient.

Summer is right around the corner, and you know what that means: blazing heat! Performing an early maintenance check before these hot summer months will ensure efficient and reliable operation when you need it the most.
