Helpful Tips

Air filters: When should you check them?
Check your air filter every time you get your electric bill.  Many filters you buy in the store will claim to last 3 or 6 months...don't believe it!  Once you learn the tendencies of the dust in your house, you can adjust how often you check.  On average, 30-40% of insufficient cooling calls can be contributed to dirty filters or dirty coils (which is accelerated by having a dirty filter).
Air filters: pleated or not?
Pleated filters are good if you maintain a very clean filter.  However, once pleated filters get slightly dirty, they can cause air-flow problems.
What does SEER mean?
This stands for seasonal energy efficiency rating. It's the efficiency rating for A/C equipment.  This is like mpg on your car.   The higher the SEER the more efficient the A/C system is and the more savings you'll see on energy bills.
When's the best time to service my A/C system?
It's a good idea to have your A/C system serviced in the spring.  This could save you costly and inconvenient breakdowns in the summer.   Make sure the company you hire is licensed and insured.
How do I know if my system needs more freon?
The average A/C unit holds 7-10 lbs of refrigerant (freon).  Be leery of someone that tells you your unit needs to be charged with 12 pounds or more.  They may be pulling a fast one on you.  Also, be sure they weigh in the refrigerant with a scale to ensure you're being charged fairly.
