• Getting Your Home Energy Ready for Summer

    Is your home energy ready for summer? If you aren’t sure how to respond to that question, the answer is most likely no. Fortunately, getting your home energy ready is a simple procedure that only requires a few steps. The first task that you need to do is change out your HVAC system’s filter, which will keep the air conditioner running smoothly. Afterwards, turn your thermostat on and check to see if your air conditioning is blowing out cold enough air. If the air feels warm, there’s a possibility that something may be wrong with your AC system that needs to be addressed immediately. Once you have completed these steps, take the cover off of your outside air conditioning unit and remove any debris that may have collected around it. After doing this, your home should be energy ready for summer.

  • Watch: Basic Summer Home Maintenance Tips

    Air conditioning is a luxury that few people could live without in the summertime. In order to work effectively, though, air conditioners need to be properly maintained all throughout the summer months. This video discusses how homeowners can do this.

    First, the air conditioning filter should be changed at least once a month or more. This will keep dust from entering the HVAC system and it keep it running efficiently. Next, the air conditioner itself needs to be serviced regularly, since a technician will be able to address any issues before they become problematic. Finally, the insulation in the house should be inspected to identify any air leaks.

  • Reasons to Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned

    Many of today’s homes are well-insulated, which makes them more energy efficient, less expensive to heat and cool, and more comfortable year-round. But even with all of the positives of air insulation, there is a negative side effect: indoor air pollution. Some experts say that our exposure to toxic materials is five to ten times greater than it is outdoors. One of the best ways to cut down on indoor air pollution is by scheduling air-duct cleaning services through your local HVAC company every five to seven years. Air-duct cleaning will improve the air quality of your home, which will improve your health, reduce the amount of debris that your air filter must filter, and make your home cleaner by removing dust and dirt.

    Using the Wrong Air Filter

    There are a wide range of HVAC air filter types , including fiberglass, pleated paper, media, electrostatic, and electronic air filters. Call your local HVAC company and have them evaluate your system and the type of filter that is best for it.

    Not Replacing Air Filters

    Air filters usually need to be replaced every one to three months. Other filters, such as electrostatic and electronic air filters, need to be cleaned every one to four weeks. Dirty air filters are ineffective and will spread allergens throughout the house, so remember to call your HVAC company to have your filters cleaned and replaced routinely.

    Not Having the Ducts Cleaned

    If your home’s ductwork is dirty, the HVAC system will bring all of the debris and allergens out of the ductwork and into your home. Furthermore, if your ductwork is insufficiently insulated, then the HVAC system will draw air through the cracks of the ductwork, effectively circulating dust, allergens, and impurities that are in your home’s walls. At least once every five to seven years you should have an HVAC company seal and clean the ductwork in your home.  

    HVAC filter and duct maintenance is essential, especially if you have a pet at home.
