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.

Save Money On Utilities and Stay Cool This Summer – Chesapeake, VA

Darren Kincaid - Monday, April 11, 2016

The summer is on the way. The average American home spends almost 20 percent of its utility bills on cooling.

To help you and your family stay cool, comfortable and save energy, here are a few simple steps.

Use Ceiling Fans. Run your ceiling fan to create a cool breeze. If you raise your thermostat by only two degrees and use your ceiling fan, you can lower cooling costs by up to 14%. When you leave the room, remember to turn off the fan.

Maximize Shade. Pull the curtains and shades closed before you leave your home to keep the sun from overheating the inside of your home. You can also move container trees and plants in front of sun-exposed windows to serve as shade.

Find the Best Thermostat Settings. If you have a programmable thermostat, program it to work around your schedule—set it a few degrees higher when no one is home, so you are not cooling an empty house.

Reduce Oven Time. Use a microwave or grill outside instead of oven cooking, when you can. Ovens take longer to cook food and can make your house warmer.

Check Air Conditioner Filters. Check your cooling system air filter every month. If the filter looks dirty, change it. A good rule is to change the filter at least every three months. A dirty filter will slow air flow and make the system work harder to keep you cool and waste energy. Also, remember to have your HVAC system service done annually to ensure it’s running at optimum efficiency for money and energy savings.

Plug Leaking Air Ducts. As much as 20 percent of the air moving through your home’s duct system is lost due to leaks and poor connections. Seal duct work  and make sure that connections at vents and registers are well-sealed where they meet the floors, walls, and ceilings. These are common locations to find leaks and disconnected duct work.
