How often do I need to change my filter?
Presidential Heating & Air Conditioning recommends every four to six weeks. Check your filter after four weeks to see if it is dirty. If not, then wait and change it at five to six weeks. Do not wait any longer than six weeks.
When is a good time to have my system checked?
We recommend checking your air conditioning and heating system before each season (i.e. in the spring and in the fall).
What can I do to increase my systems efficiency?
We recommend keeping filters clean. Keep leaves and debris from around the outside unit. Wash coils every two to three months. Install a programmable set-back thermostat. If you have a heat pump, the setting should be set at one setting and remain at that setting.
An older furnace is only 60% to 70% efficient. The newer units are 80% to 94% efficient. Most older air conditioning units are 5 to 6 S.E.E.R. (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). New models will run 13, 14, 15, 17, 21 S.E.E.R. The higher the rating, the less electricity your unit will use. Each household usage is different. Some homeowners see savings of 30-40% per year.
When are the best times to purchase a new system?
Presidential doesn’t raise its prices during peak times. But in the spring and fall, the manufacturers often have specials on humidifiers, air cleaners, and thermostats, as well as financing packages. Call us for more details about these discounts or check our Coupons Page for current specials.
Presidential recommends air cleaners to remove & kill airborne germs & allergies and ultraviolet germicidal lights to reduce the amount of pollutants, such as molds and bacteria growing on your indoor coil.
