How to Change an Air Filter in Your HVAC System

September 19th, 2017

The arrival of fall means your air conditioner will be seeing less and less use as your heating system steps up to handle the job of keeping your home comfortable. That makes this time of year an ideal opportunity to perform a little TLC on your HVAC system, to help ensure that it performs as efficiently as possible. Ideally, you should schedule a maintenance session from a qualified HVAC service to help correct any little problems that may crop up (as well as checking for lager issues that may be brewing).
