Always have your system checked yearly to make sure that your equipment is safe.

Occurs, deadly carbon monoxide gas can fill the house causing serious heath problems
Or death to those inside.
All heating contractors recommend an annual cleaning, just as we at Bryant-Burnett Heating & Air Conditioning Co. do. But we do so for a number of reasons. A clean
Unit will operate more efficiently, getting more energy for your dollar. It also provides
A safety check of your entire unit for cracked or damaged parts. All equipment
Manufacturers recommend that you have your equipment serviced annually. Cleaning your unit may also lengthen the life of your equipment.
Your filter should be changed about every four (4) weeks. A dirty or clogged up
Filter will not only cut down air flow and efficiency, it can also damage your
Equipment. If your filter is not a disposable, follow the manufacturers
Advise for cleaning the filter. If it is a washable filter, make sure the filter is completely dry before you reinstall it.
Yes you can however manufacturers generally agree that all plants and bushes should
Not be any closer than 18″ away and 36″ away from the service door. The reason behind
This is because air conditioners and heat pump units need intake and exhaust air to
Operate efficiently and properly. If the air cannot circulate, the unit could build up
Heat and require service. Always make sure to keep your outdoor unit free of debris. Keep grass clippings, leaves and other debris away from your unit to help the unit drain properly and to operate properly.
Yes, there are a couple of reasons why. First is that when you set the thermostat to on
You get constant filtering of the air in your home. The second reason is that because
The air is always moving, you have a more even temperature throughout your home or business.
