We recommend having a licensed technician maintain your air conditioning unit at least twice a year. This includes a thorough inspection and cleaning of your homes air conditioning system. Regular maintenance has been known to double the life of your air conditioning system. Regular filter changes are important to. We recommend changing one inch filters every month or 5 inch filters twice a year.
Have you fired up your furnace this fall? Don't worry if you haven't. Many of us like to wait until the last possible moment to save on our utility bills. We offer maintenance to fire your system up for the first time this fall/winter. We will check and ensure it is functioning properly.
If you have a heat pump or electric furnace and you smell a hot smell for the first few moments after firing it off for the first time, this is typically normal. If your smoke alarms go off, you may want to consult a professional as this may be a sign of trouble. Dust builds up on the heat strips all summer and has to be burned off when the unit is first turned on. Advice such as this should help save you and your family money this fall. If you have any questions or wish to have your furnace serviced before the temperatures drop, contact us @ 859-429-2207. We serve all of Eastern Kentucky in the Big Sandy Region!
With winter approaching, we are turning our (and hopefully your) attention to a few important services for your home or business. We have already posted about our energy audits we are now offering. The energy saving potential of these audits will pay for themselves 10 times over in a short amount of time.
Carbon monoxide poisoning is a common and life threatening problem that many aren't aware of. We are about the education and safety of our patrons and would like to explain it to you.
Carbon monoxide is a by product of combustion (from an open flame) and displaces oxygen in the air. When carbon monoxide is picked up in your blood stream, it takes the blood platelets a while to get rid of the carbon monoxide so that it can carry oxygen again. This is what makes the gas so deadly. It has no smell, color, etc. Do not confuse carbon monoxide with carbon dioxide. Carbon monoxide is CO while carbon dioxide is CO2. Carbon monoxide is the silent killer of winter. If you find yourself getting dizzy or having headaches you may be experiencing the first symptoms of poisoning. Evacuate the premisses and get medical attention immediately because the next stages can render you incapacitated. A simple maintenance check on your gas furnace may prevent exposing your family to this scare.
**** We do not recommend using propane or kerosene heaters indoors ever!****
We are going to emphasize indoor air quality this fall. During the winter time, you will spend much more of your time indoors. Naturally your house will not be open to the outdoors as much due to the cold weather. This can cause a serious decline in your homes indoor air quality. UV lights can help combat microorganisms living in the air you breathe. The type of heat you use may dry the air out in your home. If you find yourself with static electricity or in more severe cases nose bleeds, it may be time to add a humidifier.

Below are some reminders and tips we would like to leave you with during this month.
- Set your thermostat to 72 or 74 degrees. When temperatures reach 100 it will cause your air conditioner to run nearly all the time. There are instances when preventive maintenance can help your air conditioner perform better such as having a clean evaporator and condenser coil.
- Provide shade and fresh water for your pets!
- Never leave your pets in the car in the heat!
- Don't post pictures of your vacation on social media until you are back home. This will help prevent thieves from knowing when you are out of town.
Take care and as always contact Eastern Air Flow LLC for all of your air conditioning needs. 859-429-2207 serving all of Eastern Kentucky!

Easy low-cost and no-cost ways to save energy.
- Install a programmable thermostat to lower utility bills and manage your heating and cooling systems efficiently.
- Air dry dishes instead of using your dishwasher's drying cycle.
- Turn things off when you are not in the room such as lights, TVs, entertainment systems, and your computer and monitor.
- Plug home electronics, such as TVs and DVD players, into power strips; turn the power strips off when the equipment is not in use -- TVs and DVDs in standby mode still use several watts of power.
- Lower the thermostat on your water heater to 120°F.
- Take short showers instead of baths and use low-flow showerheads for additional energy savings.
- Wash only full loads of dishes and clothes.
- Air dry clothes.
- Check to see that windows and doors are closed when heating or cooling your home.
- Drive sensibly; aggressive driving such as speeding, and rapid acceleration and braking, wastes fuel.
- Look for the ENERGY STAR® label on light bulbs, home appliances, electronics, and other products. ENERGY STAR products meet strict efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.
