Regular HVAC Tune-Ups for Healthier Air At Home

Darren Kincaid - Tuesday, February 20, 2018
Central Plumbing and Heating in Chesapeake, VA

We all thought our houses had safe and healthy air, but contrary to that belief, air contaminants is often higher inside the house rather than outside. This is due to poor indoor air quality brought about by an HVAC system that is not properly or regularly maintained.

Various microorganisms can thrive on dirty filters and can pose a threat to your family’s health. Poorly maintained HAVC systems also emit carbon monoxide that can be dangerous if it buildups in the house. Regular HVAC check-up and maintenance should be a top priority in any household. You are not only protecting your family’s health by performing this tune-up, you are keeping your home safe from dangerous incidents as well.

Have your hvac system checked and serviced at least twice a year by a licensed HVAC contractor. Moreover, a well-functioning unit can save you a lot in energy consumption and money spent. If your HVAC system is due for inspection and tune-up, don’t delay, contact Central Heating and Plumbing.

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.
