Increasing Home Temperature Retention
Many people would be amazed if they found out how much cool air they are losing through gaps and leaks in their home. The air in and around your home is constantly seeking to achieve homeostasis, where everything is balanced. This equates to hot and cold air constantly escaping through any means necessary. If your home’s windows look to be weathered, it can be very beneficial to utilize caulking to seal any gaps in the frame. Doors are also notorious for heat loss (or gain!), which can often be minimized by weather-stripping. Our HVAC company can come out and perform an audit on your house to pinpoint where the most temperature loss occurs.Your parents always warned against heating the whole neighborhood, and now you can fight against cooling everyone off, too!
Checking the Filters
While this tip is discussed all-too frequently, it is still essential to ensure that your air conditioner is operating with a clean filter. When this simple task is neglected, your AC will work harder to produce the same cooling effects. This extra effort will drive up energy costs in addition to wearing out parts much quicker. Investing in a filter can go a long ways in saving you money!
Schedule HVAC Maintenance
One proactive way of optimizing your air conditioner is to call a professional for seasonal HVAC maintenance measures. When a certified technician shows up to your home, he or she will inspect, clean, and then fine-tune every aspect of your AC system to ensure that it runs optimally throughout the summer season. Any minor issues can be quickly addressed to cool your home faster and better. Any larger problem that is found during the tune-up can be scheduled for HVAC repairs. This alone can prevent issues from getting worse and more expensive. Numerous HVAC companies will also offer a guarantee program, certifying that your unit will run smoothly through the year. If something goes awry, you can breathe easy knowing that a technician is on the way to make repairs.
