Here in Colorado we have constantly changing temperatures. In one day we can have 80s, to snow, to rain, right back to the 80s. It’s a constant whirlwind of changing temperatures. With that being said, we work our HVAC systems into the ground and it’s important to remember to maintain them to keep them running in tip top shape. Here are a few tips to keep your HVAC running as smoothly as possible.

Running Your HVAC

You should always ensure you’re not overworking your HVAC. Don’t make it work harder than necessary and don’t let your home get too hot/cold before you turn it on. Your HVAC system can only cool/heat your home by 20% without overloading so it is crucial to regulate your home’s temperature so you don’t stress your unit. Keep your windows and doors closed when running your HVAC, keep shades drawn on hot days, and avoid as much direct sunlight through your doors and windows.

Air Filters

You should replace your air filters at least every 3 months but more if you have a larger family, pets, or have allergies. You can reduce your energy bill by at least 10% by consistently replacing out your air filters. Not only will this save you money but protect your family’s health.


When you constantly change the settings on your thermostat, this can often cause inefficiency. When your A/C is on, switch your A/C to fan to prevent hot and cold pockets from forming, this will help in preventing your condenser from icing.


Remember your HVAC is not just inside but outside as well. Clear any plants from your HVAC with a range of at least 12-18″. Make sure the indoor vents remain unobstructed to ensure maximum air circulation.

Scheduled Maintenance

Scheduling regularly scheduled appoints with Done Plumbing & Heating can be extremely beneficial to your HVAC system. We do professional maintenance checks and ensure everything is running properly and efficiently. If you’re in need of having your HVAC maintained, contact us today at Done Plumbing & Heating!

Let’s be honest: Nobody thinks about their plumbing and heating until there’s a problem.

What most people don’t realize is that most of those problems can be anticipated and often avoided with regular maintenance – usually at a far lower cost than a repair or replacement.

“This past week I had the need for a plumber and I reviewed the telephone book and selected from the advertisements your company to attend to the matter. The company sent Austin Steinbach to attend to and review the problem. He is a very knowledgeable young man who communicates well and does his work in a very thorough and professional manner. I was very satisfied with his service. Mr. Steinbech is a credit to your company. Very often in communities someone asks whether they are aware of a plumber or other technician that can be recommended. In this regard, I am comfortable in recommending Mr. Steinbech and your company. Thank you for the service rendered.”

“Quick & competent work done to high satisfaction. Darrell Begay provided quick service and very professional work when he came to install a new toilet seat. We had not been able to do the work ourselves, so it was a relief to have Darrell and Done Plumbing get here so quickly to take care of the task. We appreciate all Done as done for us”

“Just a note to tell you of our recent positive experience with Kieth Croft. We found him to be friendly, knowledgeable, & efficient. When an issue arose with the clean-outs, Kieth quickly resolved it to our satisfaction & to the way he had previously described. From the estimate to the conclusion of the project we had confidence in Kieth. He is a good ambassador for your company.”

“Just a note of thanks for being the Best plumbing and heating company. I have used you often and have been impressed every time. I called for a drain cleaning and was told a technician could come the same day. He arrived an hour ealier than was quoted, was very professional and did a great job at a very reasonable price with my coupon that he honored. I would never use another company and would recommend you to anybody that needs help. The technician that did such a great job was Austin, but every technician you have sent has been the best. Thanks again for such a wonderful company”

~ Karla W Golden, CO

“It was very professional, prompt & the technician explained many things well. Very happy throughout the whole process – from the customer service rep who answered the phone this morning to the technician explaining building codes to me.
