Even if your team didn’t make it to the Super Bowl this year chances are you’re still going to watch the big game. If you are having friends and family gathering to watch the big game then you know the importance of being prepared. You wouldn’t entertain your guests without stocking the fridge, preparing some killer appetizers and making sure your tv and sound system are working. Your furnace needs to perform just like the players in the Super Bowl. Make sure your furnace doesn’t choke under pressure by changing the filter beforehand.
The three biggest benefits of changing your furnace filter are energy savings, lower utility bills and better air quality. Just like the offensive line is looking for the widest gaps to get through to the end zone your heat will work better with unobstructed vents. By keeping your HVAC system well-conditioned, it will do more than just keep your household running at a comfortable temperature for much longer than the game.
A dirty furnace filter can cause dirt, dust, grime and debris to build up on heater components impairing the efficiency of the entire heating system. Just like the players condition their bodies to perform at top speeds and work on their lung capacity to keep them going strong for the entire game your furnace needs to be able to keep up with your household’s demands. Think of your air filter as your HVAC system’s defense; it is there to protect your home from contaminants.
Don’t make us throw a flag on your play for having fluxing temperatures from room to room. You want all of your guests to feel comfortable whether they are hovering in the kitchen while the halftime snacks are cooking or with the rest of the fans surrounding the television. Each room should be at a comparable level. If your furnace filter is dirty and clogged the air can be struggling to get through and get forced to a different area of the home creating a stagnant feeling in the room that isn’t getting the proper air circulation. Party foul, indeed.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
