R & S Mechanical HVAC Services Great Home Energy Savings Tip #2
Well summer is almost over here in North Carolina. Now we are getting ready for some cold weather. Luckily it does not get too cold here in NC.
I would like to give you some savings tips to help you conserve on some energy and money.
Thermostat: As I mentioned in my last post the thermostat is one of the most significant component of an HVAC unit. It provides unparalleled efficiency in temperature control. You will never have to turn your system on and off repeatedly once you are able to set desired temperatures. Leave the job to the thermostat and it will gladly provide you with effective results. Be sure not to abuse the component, though. Make up your mind first on your desired temperature (the rule is to keep future adjustments to a minimum so you can be assured of a longer service), set it up and presto! Your unit will run and shut off to meet your comfort level. A recommended temperature setting of 76 degrees F for cooling and 66 degrees F for heating shall guide you for excellent control. However, you may set the room temperature depending on how you preferred it to be. Just make it a point to ascertain that you are not getting your air conditioner overwork. Run it only when necessary so you can enjoy its efficient service for years to come.
Filters: Installing new filters will help your unit run more efficient and reduce stress on the indoor blower. I would recommend changing them every other month. If you have any pets I would change them monthly. Also don’t forget to clean your vents.
HVAC Service: It is best to have a HVAC Technician service your unit prior to the heating season. He will make sure the unit is working properly. He should clean your heating burners, check your pilot light and controls, check for any gas leaks or cracked heat exchanger. If you have a heat pump or electric heat, he should check your electric strips and your outdoor unit for proper operation.
Duct Work: Also have a HVAC Technician check your Air Ducts. Sealing and insulating can reduce your total energy use by more than 20 percent. He should check on all ducts that run through unconditioned space such as your garage or attic, and should seal ducts with mastic or foil-backed tape.

Gary R Jeff designed a great Mitsubishi Mini Split for my new Music Room. Julio and Marlon did a great job on the initial pre-plumb, and Julio and Jake returned to finish the install. I did have one minor glitch, and Jeff sent Barry out to take care of that. Great equipme...
Lisa G Have had nothing but positive experience working with R&S. Brittany is the front end of the company and does a great job representing company. friendly, pleasant and helpful. Provides accurate information and follows up as she says.
Sean H. I had R and S come out to my house for the second time in the last couple of years to fix an issue with our heating system, and they were able to show up quickly and promptly and fix the issue the same day. The folks I have dealt with at R and S have all been very friendly and helpful in explaining the two issues with our heater thus far. We've had very good experiences and would definitely recommend to other homeowners.
Mancy M. I would recommend R & S Mechanical at any time for those who are looking for professionalism and ability to make a major job look like it's a minor one. I contacted R & S as one of 5 suppliers and service companies to install a new unit in my house. Even though price was a factor, but I was also looking to work with an organization that would be honest and caring. I did find such values with R & S. They were the only one out of the five who actually called to follow up on their offer and ensure that everything was well explained and clear. Absolutely great guys and they made sure to keep the place clean after they left. I definitely made the right choice.
Jennifer R. I have dealt with R&S since I moved to Raleigh four years ago and they have taken consistently good care of my HVAC units. They are prompt, professional, courteous and definitely pick up after themselves. They even call me to schedule regular maintenance that comes with my service contract instead of me having to remember. I can get an appointment very quickly if something breaks on me and they always arrive early. I'm overall very satisfied.
Gail S. I have always been pleased with their service. They are quick to respond, even on weekends. I would definitely recommend them.
Carol C. Our overall experience with R&S has been exceptional. We have been homeowners for over 30 years and have never had better service, concern and respect as we have received from R&S. Highly recommend.
Barb and Jerry Our AC system failed on a Friday afternoon at our Daughter's condo. Shortly after our call, Randy and Mike came to our condo, diagnosed the unit and loaned us portable cooling units over the weekend. They installed a new system and got us up and running the following Tuesday. Their prices and service were great! Very responsive, very straight forward, no hard sell unlike the big companies. Highly recommended - excellent service!
