Q. How often should I check my air filter?

A. It is generally a good idea to check your filters monthly, depending on what kind of filter you have. Some filters are disposable, while some can be removed, cleaned and reinserted. If you aren't sure or you need service, please contact our team and we can find out.

Q. How does humidity affect my home?

A. Like most things, there is a proper balance for humidity in your home. Too much humidity can lead to issues like mold and other allergens. If your home is too dry, it can negatively affect the wood in your home, as well as causing issues like dry skin.

Q. What is a ductless system?

A. These are units that allow you to have air conditioning in a space, without the need to implement or connect a system of duct work. They are relatively simple to install and look more professional than multiple window units. Call our AC repair and installation experts today to find out how these cost-effective systems can help you.

Q. How are the capacities of HVAC systems measured?

A. Heating and air conditioning system sizes are measured based on B.T.U.H. (British Thermal Units Per Hour). Air Conditioning and Heat Pumps are also rated in tonnage. 12,000 BTUH equals one ton. Residential systems can range from 1 to 5 tons. A thermal unit (BTU) is equal to 1055 joules or one four-inch wooden match.

Q. What size air conditioner should I have in my home or business?

A. With air conditioners, bigger is not always better. To maximize efficiency, it is crucial that your system fits your space. If your unit is too small it will have to work harder to achieve the desired temperature and may not ever be able to reach or sustain it. If your unit is too big, the cycles will be shorter. This can lead to energy inefficiency and humidity issues. Our AC repair and service technicians can find the perfect fit for your home or business in the Andrews and Big Spring, TX area.

Q. What is a Wi-Fi thermostat?

A. Wi-Fi thermostats represent some of the newest technology in heating and cooling. They allow you to change your thermostat settings with your smart phone or tablet, even if you aren't at home. They are not only convenient, but they can help you save on energy costs by being able to monitor and change your thermostat from almost anywhere.
