Have you checked your heating and cooling systems lately? Perhaps it’s time for you to take a look and do some simple maintenance, especially now that fall is almost here. Maintaining your HVAC systems to keep them at their optimum performance can easily be done through the following easy steps—but for more serious issues with either of your systems, don’t hesitate to call on heating or air conditioning repair experts as soon as possible.

To ensure your systems’ optimal performance, Energy Star recommends the replacement of air filters at least once every three months. New filters trap the usual contaminants, such as pet hair, dander, and dust, better than worn-out filters, thereby prolonging the life of your systems.

Abundant sunshine is one of the biggest benefits of living in Orange County, but clear and sunny days can result in high temperatures.

However, air conditioning problems can make your house feel hot and uncomfortable quickly.

Increased Energy Bills If the weather hasn’t changed much, but you are noticing increased energy bills, your air conditioner might be causing those higher balances.
