For homes without natural gas, the choice for central heating comes down to two choices: an electric furnace or a heat pump. Which is better?

September already! Although fall doesn’t officially start until later this month (September 22 if you want to mark your calendar), everyone knows that September signals the time to get ready for cooler temperatures.

You may have heard about an air conditioner’s indoor coil freezing over because someone lowered the thermostat too far. This may sound a bit fanciful: after all, the lowest setting on most thermostats is 60°F, which is definitely far above freezing.
But there’s truth to this—an air conditioner can suffer from coil-freeze with the thermostat lowered too far. It’s more likely to occur at higher altitudes, such as more than 5,000 feet above sea level. Colorado Springs is 6,035 feet above sea level, so the danger of a frozen coil is extremely real for our ACs.
Even if your AC doesn’t freeze up because of a low thermostat setting, you still shouldn’t lower the thermostat too far because it creates other problems for an AC leading to air conditioning repair in Monument, CO and high costs to run the system.

Many homeowners buy an HVAC system for central air conditioning in Colorado Springs. Although we have intense winter weather, we can also experience summers that get quite hot.

We offer our customers plenty of advice for how they can get the most out of their air conditioning in Colorado Springs, CO: better performance, lower costs. The one piece of advice we share more than any other is “Change the AC’s air filter every one to three months.” It’s a basic job and it does so much to prevent numerous air conditioner troubles.
Unfortunately, it’s the basic jobs that people are the most likely to forget. Although we’ll change out the air filter when we come for your annual spring maintenance, you’ll have to remember to do the filter changes through the rest of the summer on your own. One technique you can use to help you remember is to attach checking the filter with another monthly task, such as paying a utility bill.
To help convince you to keep a regular filter change schedule, we’re going to take a look at the various problems a clogged filter can create for your air conditioner.
