Why is my thermostat blank? Grayson, Snellville, Buford

Another Friday! Another Frequently Asked Questions Answered Friday! Today’s question is “Why is my thermostat blank?”

Your thermostat could be blank for a couple of reasons.  The easiest would be that the batteries need to be replaced.  And, yes, even if your thermostat is wired into the unit, it still has batteries.  We did a blog with pictures for general battery replacement a few weeks ago.

Otherwise, check your breakers.  One of them might have tripped.

If these don’t bring it back on, then you could have a bad thermostat or the wiring might have issues. If you’ve just read through this blog or tried this and become overwhelmed with the attempt to do this, let us help!

Does Burning Candles Affect My HVAC System? Grayson, Lawrenceville

Here's what a major candle burning house filter can look like!

Here’s what a major candle burning house filter can look like!

Another Friday! Another Frequently Asked Questions Answered Friday! We’re asked about how burning candles can affect your HVAC system. David has a picture of the filter from an HVAC unit where a lot of candles are burned.

Kris says that if you burn candles, change your filter at least every 2 months.  If you burn a lot of candles, change it monthly.  Also, this pertains to fires in the fireplace!  If you have an open face fire or ventless fireplace, the creosote from burning gets through your filter and can clog up your coil, hurting your system.

HVAC Frequently Asked Questions Answered on Friday

We thought we’d start a standard blog that comes up every Friday (something like Taco Tuesday’s but not as delicious!)  HVAC Frequently Asked Questions on Friday

Today’s frequently asked question is:  How often should I change my HVAC filter?

This answer varies according to certain conditions:

Your HVAC system can't breathe thru a clogged filter.

Your HVAC system can’t breathe thru a clogged filter.

  1. You have a air quality filter (usually a 4″ or 5″ width filter) should be changed once a year.
  2. You have a standard 1″ filter, no pets, no remodeling being done and it’s not high pollen season – once every 3 months.  If you are on our Club, this means you change it 3 months after we’ve done your twice annual service!
  3. You have a standard 1″ filter with pets, have remodeling going on or it’s high pollen season – it can be as often as once a month!  Sometimes, more often especially when you are having your floors redone!  The sawdust can really clog up your filter! The pollen can do the same as the sawdust.  We really recommend you checking the filter at least once a month during these circumstances!

We hope this answered this frequently asked question!  We’ll have another frequently asked question for you next week!
