Simple Summer Tips:
Tune In & Tune Up
A simple tune up can keep your system operating at peak efficiency, so your system won’t have to work as hard to keep you cool! Don’t forget… just like your car, routine maintenance is required by your system manufacturer to keep your warranties in effect. Check out our Summer specials.
Replace or Breakdown
Lack of regular filter changes and maintenance can cause your system to breakdown. There is no simpler way to maintain your system than to head to your local home goods store, grab a pack of filters and change them on a monthly basis. Quick Tip – You can order a 12 month supply from us!
Keep It Constant
While tempting, bumping the thermostat down a few degrees can be very inefficient. We recommend raising by 2-3 degrees during the day while you’re away to save money. For every degree you raise the setting, you cut energy consumption by up to 3-5%. Your wallet will thank you during peak season.
By installing a programmable thermostat you are able to automatically increase or decrease temperatures during the day and night to suit your family’s lifestyle and reduce energy costs. See our Programmable Thermostats.
Cut It Out
Clear or cut back shrubs and bushes from the outdoor unit. The sides of your HVAC unit require at least 12-18 inches of clearance for proper performance, so make sure this space is properly maintained.
Don’t wait until your system requires costly repairs or replacement. Call your licensed and insured HVAC technicians at Carolina Comfort Air to ensure your system is ready to go this summer.
