Ever want to be able to monitor and control your thermostat with your iPhone or iPad?

Most of us rely on technology to help manage our daily lives more efficiently, so connecting our HVAC system to the internet may be the next logical step.

You can stay connected to your business or residential property wherever you are.  Instant notifications of temperature and humidity changes are only a couple advantages of thermostat remote access. 
One of the best products currently available is the Honeywell Prestige 2.0 Comfort System Thermostat.  With a convenient iPhone app you can view and change HVAC system settings,  View and set temperature, View indoor humidity, View outdoor temperature and humidity, Access multiple thermostats and even multiple locations, and get instant alerts via email.
Convenience is not the only reason to consider this thermostat, it could help save you money on your electric bill.
When the Prestige 2.0 is used for commercial applications the programmable display will register occupied, unoccupied, override, and holiday settings.  You can create custom events 365 days to program the thermostat based on business hours.  To help save money, there is an economizer setting that switches between ventilation and cooling during occupied times depending on the outdoor temperature.  With total control over your thermostat settings you can ensure the air conditioning or heating is only running at those times when it is needed.
Other features of this thermostat are return and discharge air temperature sensors, customer alerts if the system is not functioning as expected, and alerts that inform the customer that there could be an issue prior to loss of cooling or heating capability.

UV lights will help prolong your Air Conditioning System life.

Over time, debris can collect on the surface of your air conditioning system cooling coil. Left unchecked, this buildup can reduce system efficiency and release pollutants such as mold spores and unpleasant odors into the air you breathe.

When UV lamps are installed, the air conditioning cooling coil is flooded with intense UV-C light. These lamps sterilize coil surfaces, enhance air flow, and protect the air you breathe by killing mold and bacteria. UV Lights pick up where many filters stop by actually destroying trapped particles on the cooling coil.

Conventional methods for cleaning your indoor cooling coil involve chemical or steam cleaning methods that can be costly and time consuming. Safe and reliable UV Lights deliver the benefits of a cleaner, more energy efficient comfort system and years of lasting reliability. Simply replace the UV bulbs once a year for maximum protection.

Sean McCutcheon’s Air Conditioning and Heating is currently offering special discounts. You can save up to $100.00 on new installation of UV lights.

When used in conjunction with a preventive maintenance plan, UV lights will help prolong the Air Conditioning System life.

The man is wearing a white jacket and has a stethoscope – so he must be a doctor, right?

An out of town doctor who just happens to be in your neighborhood making house calls is going door to door offering a complete physical including blood tests for only $19.99.  The doctor tells you that the cold and flu season is right around the corner, and you should get a checkup to avoid any possible sickness down the road. 

The man is wearing a white jacket and has a stethoscope – so he must be a doctor, right?

You go ahead and let the doctor into your home to do the physical and afterwards you are informed that you have a bad appendix and it needs to come out immediately.  Even though you feel perfectly fine, the doctor says he cannot leave your home until you have the procedure.  He claims you could be dead within a few hours if he does not remove the offending organ.

This may seem like an extremely unlikely scenario, but something similar to this situation happens all too frequently.

Predator Air Conditioning companies will sweep through a neighborhood and offer “too good to be true” Air Conditioning maintenance specials. 

They promise inexpensive “AC Tuneups” – sometimes as low as $19.99.  They may also advertise the common tagline “Free Service Call with Air Conditioning Repair,” do not fall for this scam!
These tactics are only designed to get a unscrupulous repairman into your home.  You can rest assured you will never only pay $19.99.  In fact by the time they are finished you may be spending hundreds or thousands of dollars for repairs or services you don’t even need.  These types of companies will always try to take advantage of you.

A properly state licensed and fully insured air conditioning contractor would never spend an hour doing preventive maintenance on your AC system for only $19.99. And if you are knowingly hiring an unlicensed and uninsured contractor you are only asking for trouble.

Make sure the contractor who services your AC system is licensed and insured.  Also, the best air conditioning contractors are also NATE certified. 

Remember that organizations like the Better Business Bureau and any Chamber of Commerce charge members a yearly fee – so any company that pays its dues will be recommended or “accredited”.  This is why you should also check online reviews, as well as ask family and friends who they have used, and talk to your neighbors and co-workers.
