What is SEER rating?2023-08-21T15:30:17+00:00

The SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) is how the efficiency of your heating and cooling equipment is measured. The SEER is the amount of cooling your system will deliver per dollar spent on electricity, as compared to other systems. For example, a 3-ton unit may have a SEER efficiency rating of 13, 14, or 15. The higher the SEER the more efficient the system will be. The SEER rating of any given unit can range anywhere from 13 to 17.

What is Preventative Maintenance?2023-08-21T15:30:51+00:00

Just as it’s important to get annual checkups at the doctor’s office or oil changes in your vehicle, it’s also important for your heating and cooling system to get semi-annual maintenance checks. This will help keep your system running smoothly and efficiently for longer, reduce repairs and could save you money in the long run. When you sign up for our Clawson Comfort Club, you receive: Two maintenance visits per year. Discounted prices for repairs/parts, should your system require it. Filter changes at time of maintenance.

What are the advantages of a programmable thermostat?2023-08-21T15:31:22+00:00

Since they are electronic, programmable thermostats are more accurate and efficient than thermostats that contain mercury. With programmable thermostats, you can control the temperature in your home at different times of day without ever touching your thermostat. Because everything is automatic, you will never forget to change the setting on your own.

What type of filter should I use? And how often should I replace it?2023-08-21T15:31:48+00:00

Standard filters work to keep your system and its ductwork clean, but they don’t really improve indoor air quality. To do that, you need a media filter. The media filter rests between the main return duct and the blower cabinet and will improve dust and particle removal by seven times that of a standard filter. However, upgrading to a pleated media filter will remove everything from insecticide dust to airborne viruses from the filtered air. Always choose a filter that matches your blower’s capacity. For optimum efficiency and filtration, Clawson Mechanical Services recommends that you replace your disposable filters at least once a month. If you have washable filters, they should be cleaned once a month.
