F.A.Qs for HVAC / Maintenance

Question: What Is the Maintenance Club?

Answer: Our maintenance club is designed to help you get the most out of your system.

Our maintenance club also comes with certain perks, like a 20% discount on repairs or priority scheduling!

Question: Why Is My Equipment Pricing So High?

Answer: HVAC equipment is more expensive than it used to be. That’s because systems are incredibly energy-efficient these days as electricity prices rise year after year. Air conditioners today can cool your home at a much lower energy cost with similar or better levels of cooling.

Also, with the advancement of technology, more specialized technicians are required to perform quality services. We make sure we’re trained thoroughly in all the systems we work on, so there’s a 100% chance of a job well done.

Question: What Should Humidity Levels Be in a Home?

Answer: Humidity levels should be in the range of 30-40%, never exceeding 50%. Any lower than this range and your nose’s mucus membranes will harden and be unable to catch illnesses before they reach your respiratory system. Any more than 50% humidity and you’ll begin to feel uncomfortable as sweat becomes unable to evaporate off your skin. Also, you’ll see an increase in mold growth.
