Customer Education

  • It's more efficient to keep a home cool than it is to cool a home. Don't wait for your house to warm up before turning on your home's AC. Maintain the cooling in the home to save money on your home's energy bills.

  • Seasonal maintenance is the best way to keep your HVAC system running the most efficient and extend the life of the system. Be sure to schedule us to come out and inspect your system before the beginning of the heating and cooling seasons to ensure you are saving the most money on your energy bills.

  • When choosing an air filter for your system, "high efficient" air filters are good at filtering out the smallest of particles but will lower your systems efficiency by restricting the amount of air your system can cycle and can increase more load on the systems fan motor. Choosing a less efficient filter is recommended to keep the system efficiency at its best and help extending the life of the systems components. When better filtration is needed, components like electronic air filters or UV lights will work best in cleaning the air and keeping your system at its peak efficiency.

  • Replace your system's air filter every 30 to 90 days to keep your system clean, running at its peak efficiency and help extend the life of the system and its components.

  • Running your system's fan on continuous while in heating or cooling modes will help balance your homes temperature and help reduce the amount the system cycles.


How often should I change my air filter?

It's recommended to change your air filter every 1-3 months, depending on factors like filter type, household conditions, and system usage.

Why is my HVAC system making strange noises?

Unusual sounds can indicate issues with your system. Common causes include loose parts, worn-out components, or debris. It's best to have an AC Worx technician inspect and diagnose the problem.

What temperature should I set my thermostat to for optimal energy efficiency?

Setting your thermostat to 68-72°F in winter and 74-78°F in summer is generally recommended for energy efficiency and comfort.

How can I improve indoor air quality?

Regularly change air filters, use air purifiers, keep a clean home, and consider ventilation upgrades. Professional duct cleaning can also help.

What's the lifespan of an HVAC system?

The average lifespan is 15-20 years for HVAC systems with proper maintenance. Regular inspections and timely repairs can extend the lifespan.

Why is my energy bill so high, and how can I reduce it?

High energy bills may be due to an inefficient system or poor insulation. Schedule regular maintenance, seal gaps in windows and doors, and consider upgrading to a more energy-efficient HVAC system.

When should I schedule routine maintenance for my HVAC system?

Schedule professional maintenance at least once a year, ideally before the heating or cooling season. This helps prevent breakdowns and ensures optimal system performance and will save you the most on your energy bills.

What's the difference between a furnace and a heat pump?

A furnace uses fuel (gas or oil) to produce heat, while a heat pump uses electricity to transfers heat from one place to another. Heat pumps can both heat and cool a home.

How do I know if I need a new HVAC system?

Signs include frequent breakdowns, rising energy bills, uneven heating or cooling, and an aging system. Consult with an AC Worx professional to assess your specific situation.
