How To Efficiently Cool Your Home

How To Efficiently Cool Your Home

Cooling your home during the spring and summer months is necessary, but it can get pretty expensive! Of course everyone wants to save money, but do you really want to sacrifice your comfort? Fortunately for you, there are a few ways to efficiently cool your home.

Change the Filter
The air filter in your HVAC unit should be changed regularly; sometimes as often as once per month. An overly clogged filter will impede the flow of air to and from the air conditioning unit causing your system to work harder. Do yourself a favor and stay on top of this easy piece of maintenance.

Sealing & Insulating
Ductwork that has air leaks and isn’t insulated can increase your monthly energy bills by almost 20 percent! Air that escapes from the ductwork prematurely will cause you HVAC system to work longer and harder to cool the rest of the house. The ductwork itself will also need to be insulated because if it runs through a hot attic or crawl space, the air inside will be affected by that temperature.

Yearly Service
Each spring, homeowners will turn on their cooling systems for the first time in more than half a year. Before turning yours on for the first time it’s best to have it inspected and serviced by a professional. Anything that can cause you a problem down the road can be fixed and replaced now, preventing you from sitting through a heat wave without a working cooling system.

Cooling your home can be quite costly on your wallet, but there are ways to do so efficiently. When it’s time for your HVAC system to be inspected, serviced, or repaired, contact the experts at Tri-City Appliance, Heating & Cooling.
