Is it necessary to change air filters on a regular basis?

It is necessary to change the filters in order for  your system to operate at its optimal level. In addition, it also helps to decrease the amount of dust, germs, and allergens in the air.

There is mold on my vents. What’s causing that? What can I do?

Mold often grows on vents when the temperature of the vent is lower than the surrounding air and causes condensation. This can happen for a number of reasons, for example, poor duct design, dirty filters, lack of maintenance, excessive indoor water vapor. Accordingly, Air Solutions can clean and inspect the system to ensure it is working properly.

My air conditioner (or furnace) stopped working. What should I do?

You should check and make sure the furnace or air handler is on. Also, make sure the breakers are on and the thermostat is set correctly. After that, if the problem isn’t resolved, call us at Air Solutions.

 What is a programmable thermostat?

Programmable thermostats are electronic systems which allow you to program when to either raise or lower the temperature at different times of the day. then, once it is programmed, you don’t have to think about it. You can also do this when you’re away from your home. In addition, they are more efficient than thermostats that use mercury.

Finally, should room vents and doors that aren’t being used be shut?

This is not recommended because HVAC systems are designed to service a specific number of square feet. Closing vents and doors disrupts the airflow and as a result,  the system has to work harder.
