Action Air’s Recommended Steps for Changing Your HVAC Filter

Posted on: March 30th, 2015 by tcg_admin 3 Comments

Steps for Changing Your HVAC Filter

All it takes are a few easy steps, but make sure you read the instructions for your unit first to help you understand how to change the filter.

It’s spring time in Clarksville, TN! Did you know changing the filter in your HVAC unit is one of the easiest steps you can take to ensure the long life of your system and improve its function? It will also help to save you some money! Your HVAC filter helps keep debris, dust, and pollutants out of your system and help it run more efficiently in the cold, as well as the heat. Action Air recommends changing it every 3 months for most systems, but some systems may need changed every month. Check your users manual to see what is best for your system.

  1. Get a new filter – First you need to know what size it is. You can check the side of your current filter for the dimensions. Once you know the size you should be able to find a filter at any hardware store and even some department stores.
  2. Turn it off – It is essential that you turn off your HVAC unit before you change the filter. This will protect you and your HVAC unit. If you can’t figure out how to turn it off, it’s as simple as turning off the breaker.
  3. Take it out – Locate your old filter and gently take it out of the location. These are generally on the right side of the unit. Be careful, because it will probably be covered in dust and debris that it is has been cleaning from your air.
  4. Slide it in – Carefully slide the new filter into the spot where the old filter lived. The arrows on the filter will indicate which side should be facing out and which side should face into the unit.

Action Air Announces Winner of Redneck Photo Contest!

Posted on: March 23rd, 2015 by tcg_admin No Comments

Mrs. Peggy Coon

She swept the contest away by receiving 525 votes on her photo!

Peggy’s HVAC unit is 24 years old and is on its very last leg! Many days the family is surprised that the unit is still functioning at all. Peggy and her family are extremely grateful to be receiving this new unit!

 

Peggy & her daughter’s story:

The air-conditioning unit is a 1991 model, and has been at this location for over 20 years. My father has lived in the house for a little over two years. We’ve had to have multiple people come out and look at it, including action air. They checked for leaks and cracks. The Evaporator Coil is leaking refrigerant. The unit is also freezing up. It’s on its very last leg and I’m surprised it’s still running.We were planning on purchasing a new one about a year ago but before we could my father suffered from a massive brain aneurysm. He was in the hospital for a couple of months and went through multiple life threatening brain surgeries. The doctors were shocked that he survived. As you may know the brain is a very important part of the human body. It controls everything you do. Including your ability to talk. Unfortunately that was taken away from my father. He is now aphasic, meaning he can’t say full sentences. He knows exactly what he wants to say but its just not possible for it to come out. Without your voice it is very difficult to do anything. It is essential to be social for almost every job out there. Therefore, my father can not work and has no income. He deserves to win this contest because he is truly a person in need of a new unit.

 

Action Air is glad to be helping a family so deserving of this opportunity!

A big congratulations to Peggy Coon & her family, as well as we want to say THANK YOU to the rest of the participants.
