Calibration and setup of thermostat. This ensures that the thermostat and the equipment programming match up to run the way they are supposed to. It will also prolong life due to time delays that should be in place for protection. Temperature and humidity calibration are also a nice touch to maximize your comfort.

A quick filter, and vents check comes next. We like to see clean filters with little to no obstruction. Do you know what the arrow on the side of the filter means? That’s right, they point in the direction of the airflow. Meaning usually they should be pointing up if your filter is in the ceiling, or toward the wall if your filter is in the wall. For those of you who have your filter at the bottom of your air handler cabinet, those filter arrows should be pointing into the cabinet. We also like to check the airflow coming out of the vents. Make sure all the vents are open and pointing towards the major heat load areas of your home… Windows, and exterior walls.

Next, we move to the air handler. (Inside unit)
