“The support of companies like Johnson Controls and its high-quality YORK heating equipment contractors like Conditioned Air enable our organization to reach more injured veterans in need and help them begin to rebuild their lives,” said Chad Gottlieb, director of construction development, Building Homes for Heroes.

indoor allergens

 

 

Life keeps us busy. Keep your family breathing fresh by changing your filters. In Southwest Florida, all sorts of allergens are in our air daily since we live on a peninsula. Below you will find good tips on when and how to change your air filter for your unit.

 

Here’s a few tips and a timeline for you on keeping your filters fresh .

  • Single occupant homes without pets or allergies: Change 6-12 months
  • Typical home without pets: Change every 90 days
  • Add a dog/cat: Change every 60 days
  • Multiple pets or have allergies: Change every 30-45 days

 

Tips on Changing the Filter

  • Turn off the unit before replacing the filter.
  • Use the right filter for your unit and make sure it’s not damaged out of the package.
  • Follow the directions for your unit to make sure you’re installing the filter properly.  For example, many filters use different colors for the front and back (or upstream and downstream flow) so that they’re not installed backwards.
  • Make sure there aren’t any gaps around the filter frame.  If this is the case, you may have the wrong size filter, or the filter itself may be defective or damaged.
  • Use a rag to clean up any residual dust before and after you replace the filter.
  • Securely replace any levers, gaskets and/or seals.
  • Turn the unit on and observe it while it’s operating to make sure the filter stays in place.
  • Note the date of filter replacement in a convenient location for the next time you inspect it.  A filter that becomes dirty enough to change within a short period of time may indicate a problem with the unit or ventilation system, so monitoring how often the filter requires changing is important information for your technician to have.

 

Conditioned Air is now serving Sarasota, Bradenton, Venice, Lakewood Ranch and all of Southwest Florida. If you need a new filter go to our website, place an order and it will be shipped to your door here

It’s August in Southwest Florida, the hottest month of the year. Here are 5 top tips to keep your home cool this summer.
 
 
To optimize your comfort, set your thermostat to 78°F when you’re at home and 85°F when you’re not*.
 
 
Lower blinds or close curtains during the daytime. This prevents the sun’s heat from entering your home.
 
 
Set ceiling fans to counterclockwise. The cooling effect on your skin will make the room feel 8° cooler.
 
 
Use a dehumidifier to remove excess moisture from the air. This will leave you feeling cooler even on the hottest days.
 
 
Cooking adds heat to your home. On hot days, avoid using the oven. Instead, grill outside or use a microwave oven.

At Conditioned Air of Naples, Fort Myers & Sarasota we are here 24/7 to keep you cool.
