  • Use a shop-vac to clean out your drain line on a regular basis. This will prevent the water from backing up and causing damage to your home or office.
  • Remember to change your air filter on a monthly basis. This simple task can often save you time and money by preventing break downs that require a service tech to repair.
  • Before calling for a service technician always be sure to check your breakers and your thermostat to be sure they are turned on. Many service calls can be avoided by a simple reset of the breakers and thermostat.
  • If you or a family member suffers from health problems, talk with our consultants about an appropriate unit for your home. The right system will reduce the amount of harmful particles in the air and help slow or stop the spread of sickness to other family members.
