5 things you can do to keep your home cool

KeepCool

Let’s face it….here in the Sunshine State things are just starting to heat up.

Pompano Beach, Hialeah and Miami are among the cities that usually have the state’s highest daytime summer temperatures, but the entire state will be hot, hot, hot for the next couple of months.

Here’s a list of 5 things you can do to keep your home cool:

1. Have one of our HVAC professionals provide a free 10-point AC Hygiene Inspection.

2. A humid home can often times feel hotter. If you have any water intrusion or unknown humidity issues have them dealt with immediately.

3. Have your system checked for air leaks. Many times cool air escapes the ductwork through tiny holes in the system. Check out this video from an episode of This Old House explaining how we fix air leaks.

4. Dirty ductwork can really take a toll on your indoor air quality and the efficiency of your A/C unit. Save $25 on your next duct cleaning.

 

5. Have your air conditioning system tuned-up with our $49 A/C tune up special.

3 Reasons to Change your Filters

images3

1- Air Quality

Air filtration is one of the least expensive ways to improve air quality. The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) suggests that filters should be cleaned or replaced not less than every 3 months.

2- Equipment efficiency

According to the US Department of Energy’s Federal Energy Management Program, air filters play a critical role in maintaining indoor air quality and protecting the downstream components of the cooling equipment (coils, blower, etc) from accumulating dirt that reduces equipment efficiency.

3- Contamination source

A dirty filter can become a contamination source if not cleaned or replaced. Dirty filters can also force air to go around and bypass filtration sections and the unfiltered bypass air deposits debris on the cooling/heating coils rather than on the filter.

Routinely change or replace filters based on either regular intervals or by visual inspection. Intervals can range from 1-6 months (some newer type and style filters indicate usage up to 6 months), depending on the dirt loading from both the indoor and outdoor air. Visual inspections of the leading edge side of the filters can help indicate frequency. In commercial facilities, measuring the pressure drop across the filter is the most reliable way to rate particulate loading on the filter.
