Ventilation and good air quality are sometimes under-appreciated in a home. Proper air circulation helps regulate temperature, can prevent mold, remove impurities and simply make your living space more pleasant. Poor air circulation on the other hand can leave your home’s air stagnant and can actually endanger your health. In this post we want to provide you with a few simple steps you can take to get the air in your home flowing again for a healthier and more comfortable home. This is especially important in much newer homes since they tend to not have as much natural infiltration. This is mainly due to improvements in energy efficiency techniques.

  • With the spring air about to arrive let’s start with the obvious way to immediately improve the indoor air circulation in your home. ?By simply opening up screen doors and windows you can create a cross breeze that will help circulate air through your entire house. Of course in the spring it is best to wait for all of the pollen to stop falling first.
  • Keep those ceiling fans turned on when you are home. We know most people take advantage of this during the warmer months. However, it can also be very beneficial in the winter since a fan helps heat a living space by recirculating the warm air trapped near the ceiling. The key here is making sure the fan is rotating counter-clockwise during the warmer months and clockwise during the cooler months.
  • Most people never think about the exhaust fans in their kitchens or bathrooms. These small exhaust fans work similar to ceiling fans but in reverse. These fans draw air and moisture inwards which can improve ventilation, remove humidity and contaminants from the air.
  • Attic vents should be installed in your home if not already in place. This is best left up to a professional but is certainly a much needed item if not already in place. A lack of attic ventilation can cause stagnant air to become trapped and penetrate the attic floor. In turn this air can affect your entire house. ?Attic fans can provide the ventilation your attic needs while reducing energy costs. They can also help extend the life of your roof. There are also tax credits for solar attic fans so keep this in mind when doing your research.

These simple air circulation tips can make a big difference towards a healthier and more comfortable home. They should also help you save a little on your heating and cooling costs and who doesn’t like saving money on their bills! Remember for all of your heating and cooling needs we are here to help.

There are lots of ways to prolong the life of your HVAC equipment and save money this spring & summer. That is why we have compiled this simple list of tips that we hope you will find to be helpful.

Remember, our “Comfort Protection Plan” offers priority service calls, two service cleans per year and a 15% discount off of your entire bill!

Tips:

  1.      Have your Air Conditioning system tuned-up once in the spring and in the fall. This will keep your HVAC system running at peak efficiency. You want your system operating at peak efficiency because the system doesn’t have to work as hard. Allow it to do its job while saving you money.
  2.      Replace your furnace or air handler filters on a regular basis. Lack of regular filter changes and maintenance can cause your system to breakdown which means unwanted repair bills. There is no simpler way to maintain your system and your local home goods store should have them in stock. Just be sure to write down the size located on the old filter and mark a reminder on your calendar as a reminder.
  3.      Keep the thermostat constant. We know it is tempting when you are hot to bump the thermostat down but this can be very inefficient. You can, however, raise the thermostat 2-3 degrees during the day while you’re away to save money. Just keep in mind, every degree you raise the setting, you can expect to cut energy consumption by up to 3-5% which can really add up during peak season.
  4.      Consider use of a programmable thermostat. By installing a programmable thermostat you are able to automatically increase or decrease temperatures during day and night to suit your family’s lifestyle and reduce energy costs. We are even offering a $50 coupon on our website until mid-April so now is a great time to upgrade.
  5.      Clear or cut back shrubs and bushes from the outdoor unit. The sides of your HVAC unit require at least 12-18 inches of clearance for proper performance so make sure this space is properly maintained.
