Summer is fast approaching, and the temperature isn’t the only thing on the rise. When homeowners crank up their air conditioning, they will see a dramatic increase in their utility bills. Fortunately, HVAC industry leader Goettl has compiled a list of insider secrets that will keep homeowners cool, without burning through all of their cash.
Maintenance Is Key
A well-maintained HVAC system is an efficient HVAC system. Homeowners should inspect the unit for refrigerant leaks every month, and clean or change the filter every 90 days. Removing any vegetation growing near the unit is also essential. Professional HVAC technicians should brought in annually to provide more comprehensive maintenance.
Technology Is Our Friend
Homeowners may want to upgrade to a smart thermostat. Programmable smart thermostats are more accurate than traditional thermostats and can be programmed to save energy when no one is home.
Avoid Direct Sunlight
It’s best to use landscaping or an awning to provide shade for an HVAC unit. An HVAC unit that is constantly exposed to direct sunlight has to work harder to cool air, and an overworked unit is less energy-efficient.
