Central Air Conditioning Systems Need Regular Tune-Ups – Chesapeake, VA

Darren Kincaid - Monday, June 20, 2016

As a home owner, include in your summer plans an air conditioning tune up. One way to keep you air conditioning costs down be sure to have regular maintenance performed on you HVAC system.

It's very important to have tune-up and maintenance done on central air conditioning systems at least once a year. Among the benefits of having them done regularly is the significant reduction in energy consumption, which can be up to 20% or more.

A proper 24 point central air conditioner tune-up includes inspection, lubrication, calibration, and cleaning. The entire system is completely checked to make sure that the air conditioning system is operating properly and efficiently.

The system is also cleaned, including the unit outside your home. The coil is washed and cleaned, as is the blower compartments. Having 1/16 of an inch of dust or dirt accumulated on your central air conditioners blower wheel can reduce your system's efficiency by 40% or more. Additionally, the cooling coil, drain pan, duct system, and condensate drain lines are thoroughly cleaned.

Here is the bottom line, a central AC tune up will extend the life and maximize the efficiency of your air conditioning unit. If is not regularly and thoroughly cleaned, it will deteriorate rapidly, significantly reducing its efficiency, and its lifespan.

Summer Air Conditioning Tips – Chesapeake, VA

Darren Kincaid - Wednesday, May 25, 2016

Hot summer weather is here with high temperatures and high humidity. Here are some ways to stay cool and save energy at the same time. Central Plumbing and Heating can help you save money on your summer utility bills by following these energy saving tips to reduce use this summer.

  • Install a clean the air conditioning filter on a regular basis in the summer and replace or clean it monthly. Dirty filters cause the equipment to work harder and use up to five percent more energy.
  • Set the air conditioner thermostat at 78 degrees. Each degree below 78 adds about eight percent to your cooling costs.
  • Use fans, both portable and ceiling, whenever possible to help circulate air and reduce the amount of air conditioning you need. Because they are smaller wattage, they only cost a dollar or two a month to operate.
  • Set your thermostat at a higher temperature while you’re away from home. This way the air conditioner won’t be on as often while you’re out.
  • Wash dishes, use the oven, and do laundry during cooler temperatures. These create heat and moisture that put an extra strain on the air conditioner. Vent clothes dryers to the outside and use kitchen exhaust fans to get rid of excess heat.
  • Keep direct sunlight out as much as possible. Close curtains, shades and blinds to hold down the temperature inside. Consider light-colored roofs, outside walls, drapes and solar screens that reflect the heat.
  • Weatherstrip doors and windows to prevent expensive air leaks. Make sure all windows and doors are closed when the AC is on.
  • The attic should be properly ventilated to prevent excess heat build-up, which causes your cooling system to work harder.
  • Insulation is important and can pay for itself by lowering your cooling costs by as much as 20 percent.
  • Air conditioning equipment should be inspected and serviced annually by a licensed HVAC contractor so it runs at maximum efficiency.
  • Be sure the damper is tightly closed on a fireplace to prevent air loss.
  • Keep furniture and draperies away from air vents inside the house. Air should be allowed to flow freely.

Cut Energy Bills by Making the HVAC More Efficient – Chesapeake, VA

Darren Kincaid - Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Homeowners invest highly in heating and cooling energy costs. The only way to cut energy costs is to make the heating and cooling system, or HVAC, more energy efficient. This is not as hard as you may think.

First, compare your utility bills to friends’ homes of similar size. How do your energy bills compare? Do you use more or less energy? After you figure that out, you can begin to make energy saving changes.

Check the air filter in your heating and cooling system. A dirty air filter slows air flow. This forces the HVAC system to work harder and waste more energy. You should change the air filter at least every three months.

AC service and maintenance is imperative to keep your system running efficiently and effectively. If your central air system is working to hard it will waste energy. Central Plumbing and Heating can handle all of your air conditioner service, maintenance and upgrade needs. A well-maintained heating and cooling systems run more efficiently therefore wasting less energy.

A programmable thermostat saves lots of energy. By programming your thermostat to energy-efficient temperatures you can save about $180 a year, according to Energy Star.

If your HVAC energy bills are killing you, contact Central Boston Plumbing and Heating to schedule your heating and cooling system inspection and maintenance today. You can reduce you energy cost up to 50% just with a routine service and filter change out.
