Air Heat
I obtained price quotes for a new heat pump from a few A/C companies in town, and this company was by far the best to work with. Tim Beesley, the owner, came by my house the day after I called him and gave me a few different options and prices. He explained everything to me about what size unit and SEER I would need and talked to me about the different brands. He assured me that when he installs a system, he stands by it and will be there to repair it if anything went wrong, and I believe him. He also charges the same commission for all size heat pumps, so that his employees won't be tempted to "up sell" someone a system they don't need. Most of all, he was very honest. When someone else quoted me a cheaper price (probably a lower quality brand, but I don't plan on keeping the house more than 5 years), he actually told me I should go with the other company! He advised me though to make sure they were reputable, were giving me a certificate for the energy efficency tax credit, not selling a used system, and he told me exactly what to do to make sure they were licensed and insured in case something went wrong. I haven't decided which company I am going to go with yet, but I can assure you that if you have any heating or air problems, Air Heat North Inc is a good company to use.

In today's economy, finding exceptional value is a necessity. But getting a good deal should never come at the expense of quality. The owner Jim Pala has been a great help in educating me on the different units and the installation went great. I love my Amana!

Tips & Advices
You can keep your air conditioner running efficiently with some preventative care measures. Shut off the power to your AC before cleaning it or performing any of these tasks:  clean your filter at least twice a year; remove leaves and twigs from cages; clean the fins with a garden hose or special spray, then use a butter knife to straighten any that are crooked; keep your yard clean so the fins won't get blocked; cover the unit up for winter; and make sure it's level or you run the risk of damaging the inner workings of the unit.
To clean your air conditioner drain, first shut off the power to your unit at both the thermostat and the breaker. Then remove the drain pan. If the pan is full of water, soak up the liquid with a few towels or rags or use a wet vacuum. You can use a solution of water and distilled vinegar, or substitute peroxide for the vinegar, to clean out the drain pipe. Let the pipe sit for a while in the solution and then put all the parts back in place. Once you start using your air conditioner on a regular basis, check it periodically to ensure condensation isn't building up.
If you happen to live in a hot and humid area of the country, drainage problems can occur with your unit since moisture can trap itself inside the system. Routine maintenance can cut down on drainage issues by cleaning out any mold or algae from blocking the drain. If you notice moldy smells whenever you turn the thermostat down, check on your system.
If you notice your system is acting inconsistently, the sensor is most likely out of place. Turn off the unit and reach behind its control panel while carefully bending the sensor back into place near the evaporative coil.
Find out where the noises are coming from. A banging or clanking sound could be due to a loose part. If you hear a hissing sound, it's most likely because of a refrigerant leak and you should contact an HVAC technician as soon as possible.
