There are a few simple and effective ways to keep your home cool without cranking up your air conditioning system and increasing your bills. Air Quality Heating & Air Conditioning, a trusted specialist in heating and air conditioning in the area, shares some of them.
- Keep your windows sealed.
Excess heat can transfer into your home during the summer, creating hotspots that cause your AC unit to work overtime. You can prevent this by making sure your windows are airtight. Any gaps and openings between the window frames and the wall should be sealed. Adding weatherstripping around windows will also help. If you have the budget, consider switching to newer, more energy-efficient windows.
- Invest in smart temperature control.
Are you still using that non-programmable thermostat from the early 1980s? Perhaps it’s time to get a replacement. Air Quality Heating & Air Conditioning, a trusted installer of Carrier® heating and cooling systems, will be more than happy to help. We offer smart Wi-Fi thermostats from the same trusted brand which not only allow you to optimize indoor comfort levels based on your needs and lifestyle, but also help you save up to 23% in annual cooling costs. Not only that, our Carrier smart thermostats come with a tracker that can help you understand how much energy your home uses.
- Keep up with AC maintenance.
If your air conditioner has a performance issue, the system may struggle to bring your home to the desired comfort level. It will work harder instead, putting unnecessary strain on its components and consuming even more energy in the process. To combat this problem, schedule a comprehensive AC inspection and tune-up with Air Quality Heating & Air Conditioning. Our licensed and NATE-certified HVAC technicians will perform an accurate assessment of your AC system’s condition and, should we find an issue, recommend the most appropriate solution.
