A few modifications could dramatically improve both your heating and cooling experiences. Since upgrading equipment is not always an option, A-1 Comfort Care Heating, Cooling & Plumbing has tips that almost anyone can follow for better efficiency.
Clear Clogged Vents
Make sure that vents throughout your home are clear of any blockages. Remove rugs, furniture and other items that block airflow and negatively impact the efficiency of your residential cooling system.
Switch to an Up-to-Date Thermostat
There are several significant benefits to upgrading your thermostat, such as lower energy bills, automatic temperature setting changes and access to HVAC monitoring data about the system status. Our experts recommend investing in a smart or Wi-Fi thermostat, which will allow you to control the device remotely and accurately track your energy use.
Insulate Your Home
When your home is fully insulated, there will be less warm air escaping from your house during cold weather and less cool air escaping during hot weather. This eventually reduces the amount of energy needed for your HVAC system to operate and improves comfort levels inside the property.
Keep Other Appliances Away From the Thermostat
If you have heat-producing items near your thermostat, you should move them away because they can make the thermostat register higher temperature readings in the room. This will cause your air conditioner to work harder to keep your space cool.
Close Blinds & Curtains
Natural light brings some solar heat with it, so it’s best to close your window blinds and curtains when the weather is hot. Otherwise, it’s going to be more difficult for your system to cool down your rooms.
