While it’s important to have a trusted central air conditioning expert in Kalamazoo you can trust to call if there is maintenance needed on your unit, you should also keep up on maintenance you can do yourself. Regular maintenance is a key component to ensuring your air conditioner is working effectively and efficiently throughout the summer. While most maintenance needs should be left to the experts, there are a few things you can do yourself. In this post, we will discuss three items you want to be sure you’re taking care of.
Fans reduce a room’s temperature
Fans do not make the air cooler in the room, they just make you feel cooler if they’re blowing on you and lowering your body’s temperature. Many people leave the fan on in rooms they are not in because they have been told that the moving air is making the room cooler, when really, it’s just using energy unnecessarily. It is true, however, that if the outside air temperature is lower than inside a fan blowing the cool air in can reduce the room’s temperature.
With winter slowly melting away, a working air conditioner is a must. There’s nothing worse than waking up in the middle of the night, sweating bullets and listening to the utter silence that is the result of a malfunctioning air conditioning unit. If you, like many people, have come to rely on your air conditioner to keep you cool and comfortable during the warm summer months, then an occasional A/C tune-up is a must. In this post, we’re going to look at a few things that you can expect when you have your air conditioner serviced. Continue reading
Spring is usually the worst time for allergy sufferers – whether it’s pollen, dust, pet dander, mold or anything else – air purifiers and air filters can make all of the difference in the world for those affected. There are many different options for improving the quality of air in your home and combating allergies, including home HEPA air purifiers, HEPA filters, whole home air filters, and air ionizers.
Air cleaners can be very effective in removing allergy irritants that are as small as .01 microns from your home’s air. To put the size into perspective, that’s 18,000 times smaller than the head of a pin! Air cleaners are rated based on Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) – the high the number, the more efficient the air cleaner is at removing pollutants like bacteria, mold, and pet dander. Our Air cleaners range from MERV 10 to MERV 15. However, if your family has relatively severe allergies or asthma, your best bet is likely our Whole House High Efficiency Particulate Arresting (HEPA) filtration systems.
- Check your house
The best thing you can do is have a professional energy audit of your home – sometimes utility companies will even perform this service for free. If you cannot get an audit performed by a professional, you can do an amateur audit yourself. Go outside and check along windows and doors to see if there is cold air leaking out from inside. If you find leaks – seal them.
- Review thermostat placement
You want your thermostat to be in the main area of your home and out of the way of direct sunlight. If the sun is shining in on your thermostat, your AC is probably blowing more often than it needs to.
