3 More Ways to Improve Your AC and Beat the Heat
You don’t have to completely replace your AC system just to feel comfortable. There are other ways to beat the heat this spring and summer and potentially save some money as well! Check out a few of our favorite tips for getting through the summer in your home without a sweat.
Seal Up Your Ducts
One of the best ways to feel more comfortable for years to come and save some money is by sealing up the ductwork. It turns out that most homes have ducts that are leaking air into the attic or a crawlspace, at an extra cost to the homeowner.
The average household loses about 20-30% of the air from the HVAC system through the ductwork, air they are paying to cool. Some homes have even more leakage, and professional air duct sealing can make a noticeable difference to their bills and their comfort. This is particularly true if you’ve had trouble cooling the rooms of your home evenly.
Get a New Thermostat
Purchase a new thermostat for your home HVAC system and you might save quite a bit if you use it properly. Wi-Fi thermostats allow you to make changes to the system right from your smart phone, no matter where you are (as long as there’s internet access).
If you forget to turn off the AC when you leave the house, you can make adjustments from your desk at work. Or, you can readjust the temperature before you return from vacation to make sure it’s comfortable when you come back.
Keep Things Clean
One of the most important and easiest things you can do for your AC system is to make sure the components are clean. When the coil of your AC system is dirty, it interferes with the cooling capability of your system, and it might make a noticeable difference. A technician can clean the coil for you during a maintenance visit for better comfort and energy savings.
