Getting the Most Out of Your Air Conditioning System
Now that the holidays are over, most homeowners start thinking about spring approaching and focus on the many tasks around the home that need to be dealt with in the upcoming months. This is also the time of year when you need to start thinking about your air conditioning system and having it inspected and maintained by an A/C Repair service provider like KCR, Inc. Most individuals consider professional HVAC system maintenance a luxury or major household expense. In reality, it is an investment in the lifespan of your system that will give you peace of mind over the long term.
Helpful Tips for the Homeowner
If you want to avoid costly air conditioning repair or replacement expenses, it pays to have our company service your system on a regular basis in order to maximize its operation. Plus, you want to ensure that any necessary repairs that arise are done professionally as well. When you consider that A/C Repair and replacement costs continue to rise, it makes sense to follow the helpful tips listed below for maximizing the efficiency of your system:
Avoid letting too much direct sunlight into your home – with the help of curtains and shades, you can control the amount of direct sunlight that you let into your home. While this helps to reduce the level of the sun’s radiant heat, it also helps prevent the effects of it. Make sure that all doors and windows are closed and insulated properly. Furthermore, consider planting trees where they will block some of the sun’s rays from entering through your doors and windows.
Check exhaust fans regularly – whenever you’re A/C system is operating, you should turn off any exhaust fans that are running in the bathrooms or kitchens as this will allow cool air to escape and make your unit work harder. If Karpouzis Commercial Refrigeration services your system on a regular basis, we will ensure that your exhaust fans are in proper working order.
Don’t set your thermostat too low – while there is not a noticeable difference in the level of comfort inside the home when the temperature is approaching triple digits and the thermostat is set at 78° compared to 72°, you will see a significant savings on your monthly utility bills. Realistically, your thermostat should not be set lower than 78° according to the many energy efficiency experts out there.
Purchase supplementary products – if you have recently considered investing in a new A/C system, you want to ensure that it is an energy-efficient unit. However, you should also think about purchasing insulation and other weatherization products for your home. These can help you save additional energy and money on your monthly utility bills. You want to make sure that specific areas such as your attic, duct system, doors, floors, walls, and windows are all insulated properly. Additionally, hire a professional for this unless you’re a skilled DIY’er.
Schedule regular A/C Repair services – an air conditioning system that has been properly maintained and serviced by professionals will operate efficiently and save you money over the long term. We offer annual maintenance and service plans that can be tailored to your specific HVAC system needs. Keep in mind that an air conditioning system that is not properly maintained and service on a regularly scheduled basis is going to waste energy and cost you more money on your monthly utility bills.
