Our team at FAST of Florida thinks its best that you change out air filters every 30-90 days depending on how many people and pets may be in the home. In high-use seasons (Summer) we advise checking and changing air filters even more often.

Allergies and asthma effect more than 41 million Americans. If you’re part of this group we suggest that you get an appointment to have your air ducts cleaned. Doing so can benefit your health, your overall breathing, and will even give you a more efficient air conditioning system.

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

Of course, the answer to this question depends on what time of the year it is and your individual comfort levels. But we have suggestions for the cold and warmer seasons. In winter months the average temperature setting is 78°-80°, in summer 70°-72° is around the average setting. Remember, when leaving your home for work or several hours don’t try to apply very drastic temperature changes. Do not set your temperature back any more than 5° since this will cause common systems to work harder to achieve the desired temperature setting.

You should have maintenance done on your air conditioning system twice a year. This not only ensures maximum efficiency, it enables us to potentially catch possible problems that might plague you in the near future. Our Comfort Club Agreement plan is specifically designed to help keep your air conditioning system running at its peak efficiency for the whole year.
