Spring is finally here and now is a good time to think about getting ready to use your air conditioner. Before the first heat wave hits, there are 5 things that you can do in your home to °help you enjoy the best in comfort and efficiency that your HVAC system can deliver.
1) If you have a by-pass style humidifier, the damper must be closed when using the air conditioner, and the humidistat should be turned to the OFF position. If the humidifier filter looks dirty remove it and replace it with a new one.
2) Check the furnace air filter and replace a dirty filter with a new one.
3) When using the air conditioner, the basement registers should be closed as cold air is dense and will naturally fall into the basement anyways. Check all the registers in the home to make sure they are all set fully open, keeping in mind that rooms that cool easily may need the registers to be partially shut.
4) Make sure to check that all the windows in the house are shut and close any window coverings on the southeast and southwest windows, which can really reduce solar heat gains, saving you money!
5) Check that the air conditioning breaker is set to ON
Now it’s time to look outside of your house where the AC Unit sits. Remove the winter cover and make sure that the unit looks clean, as an accumulation of debris on the condenser coil fins will reduce the efficiency of your air conditioner and increase your operating costs. The first warm day we get this season is the best time to test your AC to see if it comes on. Set the thermostat to ‘COOL’ and listen for any unusual noises. If everything sounds good to let the system run for 10-15 minutes. By that time the air coming out of the registers in your home should feel cold on your hand and be approximately 20°F colder than room temperature.

Great product, great service, great follow-up. The Twintech Heating and Cooling arranged removal of my existing oil tank and they installed the new gas furnace Amana (made in USA). I am very happy with the final result and support I received throughout the process. My thanks go to the entire Twintech team for their professionalism, great communication and follow-up.
We've had Twintech provide us with work in the past, for an inground pool heater and required rough-in for a new gas stove. More recently they provided the same friendly, professional, timely and clean installation of our new furnace.
Reasonable price and the workmanship was prompt and timely and the employees were great to deal with.
The sales process was friendly, informative, and very consultative. They worked hard to earn our business by taking a careful look around our home to assess our needs, providing a lot of information about the product, and answering all our questions and finding the right solution for our home at a competitive price. They prepared us very well for what to expect on installation day, and the installation went very smoothly - no surprises, all very professional! They gave us a call after installation to ensure we were happy with the work. We're very happy that we chose to work with TwinTech to get our new furnace.
Twintech promptly responded to request for quotation. They were thorough and helpful in explaining options. The quote was very competitive. Installation of new furnace was very professionally completed. Excellent work.
When our old oil furnace finally broke down we decided it was time to finally convert to natural gas and finally install central air conditioning at the same time. Knowing it was going to be a significant investment for us, we wanted to make the right choice. Twintech came highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. From the first contact with the salesperson, until the final touches on the installation, we were so pleased with their service. Everyone from the company was so friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Best of all, the cost was very competitive. We would certainly recommend Twintech to anyone requiring HVAC work in their home.
Mitch from Twintech came out for our annual furnace inspection. We found him to be friendly, conscientious & he left the work area clean. We were also very impressed with the thoroughness of the job he did. This is the 2nd job weve had Twintech do for us & have been very happy with the results for each. We highly recommend this company. Thank you, Mitch, Dave & Greg.
Work was done on schedule, professionally, according to quote and with minimal inconvenience to building users. Very happy with the end result. The only area for improvement from my experience - need more timely quoting process.
The team was great! Very knowledgeable, professional and extremely helpful. A few days after install the unit didnt seem to be working, user error, but within minutes of contacting them..on a Saturday.. a tech was on the phone troubleshooting with us. I highly recommend Twintech for your cooling or heating needs. They stand by their products and a pleasure to deal with.
During the hottest week in the summer our old A/C decided to call it quits. I called Twintech Heating & Cooling after receiving a referral from a family member; came highly rated for being an honest, family-run business, who appreciates their customers. Dave was able to accommodate my hectic schedule and book a late evening appointment to walk through the specifics. Greg and Mitch arrived exactly on time a few days later, were very polite and friendly, and within a couple of hours had a new unit up and running. I also received a follow-up call to ensure we were happy with the Amana.
