Our team at Southern HVAC thinks its best that you change out air filters every 30-90 days depending on how many people and pets may be in the home. However, in high-use seasons (Summer) we suggest checking air filters even more often.

Allergies and asthma effect more than 41 million Americans. If you’re part of this group then we highly suggest that you get an appointment to have your air ducts cleaned. This can benefit your health, your overall breathing, and will likewise help you have a more efficient air conditioning system.

Too large of a system can cause your home temperature to be uncomfortable, and in some cases, it can cause moisture issues. On the other side, having a system that is too small for your building will not be efficient enough to fill your home. A technical analysis of your home’s building envelope is required to determine the proper size air conditioning system. To determine the proper size system for your home call Southern HVAC now to schedule a free in-home estimate.

We know the answer to this question really depends on what time of the year it is and your personal comfort levels. But we do have suggestions for the cold and warm seasons. In the winter months the average temperature setting is 78°-80°, in warmer seasons 70°-72° is the common setting. Remember, when leaving your home for work or several hours don’t try to apply drastic temperature changes. Do not set your temperature back more than 5° because this will cause common systems to work harder to achieve the desired temperature setting.

You should have maintenance done on your air conditioning system twice a year. This doesn’t just ensure maximum efficiency, it enables us to potentially catch possible problems that could cause you trouble in the near future. Our Comfort Club Agreement plan is specifically designed to help keep your air conditioning system running at its peak efficiency the entire year.
