Our team at Fox Service Company suggests you change out air filters every 30-90 days depending on how many people and pets may be in the home. However, in high-use seasons (Summer) we advise replacing air filters even more often.

Allergies and asthma effect more than 41 million Americans. If you’re a part of this group then we highly suggest that you get your air ducts professionally cleaned. This can help your health, your overall breathing, and will likewise give you a more efficient air conditioning system.

A system that’s too large may make your home uncomfortable, and in some cases, it can cause moisture issues. On the other side, too small a system for your building will not be efficient enough to fill your home. A technical analysis of your home’s building envelope is necessary to determine the proper size air conditioning system. To determine the proper size system for your home call Fox Service Company now to schedule a free in-home estimate.

Of course, the answer to this question depends on time of the year it is and your specific comfort levels. We have suggestions for the cool and warmer seasons. In the winter months the average temperature setting is 78°-80°, in the summer 70°-72° seems to be the most common setting. Remember, when leaving your home for work or several hours try to avoid very drastic temperature changes. Do not set your temperature back any more than 5° because this will cause common systems to work harder to achieve the desired temperature setting.

You should have maintenance done on your air conditioning system biannually. This doesn’t just ensure maximum efficiency, it enables us to potentially catch possible problems that may occur in the near future. Our Comfort Club Agreement plan is specifically designed to help keep your air conditioning system running at its peak efficiency year-round.
