Common signs of a plumbing leak include walls or ceilings that appear damp or discolored, the presence of a musty odor, an unexpected increase in water bills, diminished water pressure, or the sound of running water when no fixtures are in use.

How Often Should I Replace My HVAC Filters?

The frequency of HVAC filter changes varies but generally ranges from every 1 to 3 months. Several factors impact the timing, including the filter type, indoor air quality, the presence of pets, and system usage. Regularly changing filters helps maintain optimal airflow, enhances indoor air quality, and extends the life of your HVAC system.

What Might Be the Cause of My Air Conditioner Not Cooling Properly?

Several factors could be responsible for inadequate cooling in your air conditioner. It may result from a refrigerant leak, a clogged air filter, obstructed condenser coils, a malfunctioning thermostat, or a faulty compressor. To ensure proper cooling and prevent further damage, it’s advisable to have one of our professional HVAC technicians diagnose and resolve the issue.

How Can I Boost the Energy Efficiency of My HVAC System?

To enhance energy efficiency, take measures such as ensuring your HVAC system is correctly sized for your space, sealing air leaks in windows and doors, insulating your home, employing programmable thermostats for temperature optimization, and adhering to regular HVAC system maintenance. Additionally, consider upgrading to energy-efficient models or installing a smart HVAC system.
