Summer is here!  As the temperature rises, it’s time to take steps to ensure your home will be comfortable while keeping utility bills under control.  Below are tips to keep cool during the hot summer months.

Consider Installing ENERGY STAR Air Units

If your AC unit is not performing as it should or needs upgrading, consider replacing it with an ENERGY STAR certified system.  ENERGY STAR air conditioners are 15% more efficient than conventional models.  To get the best performance, ensure the new equipment is installed professionally by a highly trained and experienced HVAC specialist.

Change Your Air Filter Regularly

Replacing or cleaning your air conditioner filters prevents debris from accumulating in the blower fans and air ducts.  A dirty filter also forces the system to run longer than necessary to keep you cool, wasting energy.  Do not use pleated filters, they restrict your airflow and could damage components.

Install A Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats save energy by allowing users to adjust temperatures based on their schedule.  To optimize savings, set the thermostat at 76°F when you are home, 78°F when you go to bed, and 85°F when you leave the house for the day. 

Tune Up Your HVAC Equipment Yearly

Have your air conditioning system inspected and cleaned by a qualified professional annually.  This helps reduce the risk of maintenance or repair problems in the future and ensures your unit is operating at peak efficiency.
