Ways to Stay Cool without Using So Much AC

Monday, July 10th, 2017

woman-fan-hotIn the summer, all we want is to turn down the temperature on the thermostat as low as it can go and lay around the house, perhaps with a popsicle in hand or a nice frosty beverage. Of course, this isn’t always possible. First, you’ve likely got lots to do in the summer. Second, your air conditioner uses a lot of energy, and cranking up the AC will reflect poorly on your monthly bills and wear down the system a lot faster.

There are ways to help yourself and your family members to stay cool without using so much energy. Follow our tips and call our friendly team for air conditioning services throughout the Atlanta area.

How the Wrong Air Filter Affects Your Home

Tuesday, July 4th, 2017

filter-in-air-duct-handMost technicians recommend changing an air filter once every month, or at most, every 2 or 3 months. You might assume that this is because you need to keep your air clean. And this is true—partly. A technician’s number one concern, though, when it comes to your air filter, is keeping your air conditioner from being damaged.

That’s what your air filter is there for in the first place: damage prevention. But the wrong air filter can do way more harm than good.

How a Simple Thermostat Update Can Transform Your Summer Experience

Monday, May 15th, 2017

digital-thermostatThis year, make comfort a little bit easier on yourself and your family. Air conditioning can cost quite a bit to run, which makes summer an expensive time in a warm, humid climate like ours. And that means you might make thermostat adjustments that make the people in your home feel a lot less comfortable, raising the temperature for long periods or shutting off the air conditioner completely when you’d rather not.

One potential solution is a simple one: upgrading the thermostat. The thermostat is not, of course, the part of your air conditioner using the most energy. (You can blame that on the compressor and the motors.) While a new thermostat alone may not reduce energy usage, finding a thermostat with advanced programming options makes it easier for you to set it efficiently without feeling uncomfortable.

digital-thermostatEven when an air conditioner makes it through a summer with little trouble, your monthly bills throughout the season can be quite high. While you’re happy that your air conditioner is functioning well, it drains energy, and it might seem like you have to shut it off completely if you want to try to save money.

There are better ways. An energy audit is an investment in the future of your air conditioner and the energy efficiency of your home.

You might think that you’re stuck paying the same high bills you do every year—or that you have to shut off your air conditioner altogether to save some money. But we’re here to show you that there are more efficient ways to cool your home.

A Ductless System Needs Maintenance Too!

Monday, April 17th, 2017

ductless-unit-on-wallDuctless air conditioning and heating systems often get mistaken for standard room air conditioners. While they may have many of the same components, the configuration of the two is much different, with ductless air conditioners having an indoor unit and a separate outdoor condenser. As any ductless split owner knows, they involve a larger investment as well.

Take care of your investment by scheduling maintenance for your ductless mini split before the cooling season is in full swing. In fact, we recommend doing so twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, if you can. Here’s why spring ductless AC maintenance is so important.
