How often should I change my air filter?

A dirty filter decreases the effectiveness of your HVAC system by blocking airflow. A good quality pleated filter should be changed every three to six months. If your system has a lot of excess dust in it or if you have an indoor pet that sheds hair, the filter(s) may need replacement more often.



How often should I have my furnace and central air conditioning serviced?

Most people don’t realize their furnace and air conditioner run more and start and stop more than their automobile. Routine service is very important for energy efficiency and longevity of your equipment. Equipment that is not regularly serviced tends to need more repairs. We recommend having your system professionally cleaned and serviced in the spring and fall.



What do I do if my thermostat has problems?

Check and make sure that the batteries are good, if your thermostat requires them. Try turning the thermostat to the off position and back on to reset the system. If there are still problems, call FlowTech at 770-410-9353.

What are SEER ratings of air conditioning systems?

SEER is the acronym for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The SEER rating is shown as a number, example 13. The higher the number is, the more efficient the air conditioner. For many homeowners a 13 SEER (as of January 23, 2006, the minimum standard allowed by U.S. Department of Energy) air conditioner or heat pump will represent money saved on each month’s electric bill. Exactly how much you can save will depend on the efficiency of your current system.



What does the AFUE of my furnace have to do with energy efficiency?

AFUE is the acronym for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. AFUE is shown as a percentage 92% or 93%. The higher the percentage is the more efficient the furnace.



I have an R22 system, I heard that this refrigerant is being phased out, how will this affect me?

As we move closer to the time that R22 is no longer available, the cost of this refrigerant will become more expensive.  Currently the U.S. EPA has mandated that R22 will not be made after 2020.  Finding and repairing the leak or replacing the system is most likely your best option.
