If your heating and cooling system is over 10 years old, you're probably cheating yourself out of energy and money. You could be paying 30-50% more in utility costs than you should be. We can help you lower those bills and make you more comfortable at the same time. Heating and cooling your home uses more energy dollars than any other system in your home. Typically, 44% of your utility bill goes for heating and cooling. You can save money and increase comfort by properly maintaining and upgrading your equipment.

An energy-efficient furnace or air conditioner alone won't have as great an impact on your energy bills as using the whole house approach. By combining proper equipment, upgrades and maintenance with appropriate thermostat settings, insulation and weatherization, you can cut your energy bills in half.

Cooling Tips

•Set your thermostat as high as it is comfortable.
•Clean or replace your filters once a month.
•Set the fan speed on high except in very humid weather. When it's humid, set the fan speed on low.
•Use ceiling fans to spread the cooled air more effectively.
•Don't place TVs or electrical appliances that generate heat near your thermostats.
•Plant trees or shrubs to shade air conditioning units but don't block the airflow.


Are your heating & cooling bills too high?
Is your indoor or outdoor unit too noisy?
Do you have a problem with humidity in the summer? Or dry air in the winter?
Are there any rooms in your home that are always too hot or too cold?
Do you have problems with lingering cooking odors?
Do you have pets or do any family members suffer from allergies?
Is your outdoor unit unattractive and not aging well?
Does your system run all the time?
Does your furnace short-cycle, constantly turning on and off?
Is your system hard to maintain and the filter is hard to get to and change?
Are you worried about  your unit being back yard safe?
Is your units warranty expired?



Q When to Replace your air conditioner?
The bullets below may help with your decision:

  • If the equipment has reached 6 years old be careful not to throw good money after bad with repairs.  The average life span of an air conditioning unit is 6 to 12 years.
  • If the system is older than 12 years, major improvements in efficiency could be saving you BIG money. Super efficient, modern equipment can save $1,000 or more per year.
  • If you are not comfortable. Today's modern air conditioning comfort systems can virtually eliminate hot and cold areas, high and low humidity, bad air quality, high utility bills, noisy indoor and outdoor equipment, and much more.
  • If your system does not have variable air flow. Variable air flow is the key to comfort. New systems keep the air moving, adding to comfort and helping save money.
  • If you are concerned about break downs. When an old system fails under the intense summer heat, a replacement air conditioner can easily be a week to 10 days away
  • If family members have allergies, asthma or other air quality health concerns. Indoor air quality can be improved throughout the whole house by 100 times with today's high tech IAQ technology and air conditioning products
