78/10.... that is the number to remember as a rule of thumb.   Most Energy Companies recommend setting your thermostat at 78 degrees in the middle of summer....of course for many that may seem a bit high and uncomfortable - so we have to take that recommendation with a grain of salt, as we all know that utility companies are more interested in managing capacity to prevent brown/blackouts during the hot summer months and keep their customers and regulators happy, than significantly reducing their revenue flows from reduced energy usage.

Filters are an important part of your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, but with so many choices, which one should you choose??


Opinions vary, depending and filters are all designed to meet a specific need. But the one thing all experts agree on is that a dirty HVAC filter hurts the unit’s energy efficiency!   Not only will a dirty filter that restrics airflow cause the system to be overworked, reduce comfort levels, and cost more to operate, increase the pressures in the system, and lead to premature system failure.
