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. If you have any questions or need help with your HVAC you can call us anytime or contact us online. 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.

The Problem

Below we have put together some money Saving tips for the winter that may come in handy if you would like to see your heating bill drop.

1. Turn the heat down if you are away at work all day
2. If using the oven when cooking, leave the oven door open after you are finished to let it heat your kitchen and surrounding areas
3. You can use a small space heater if you are only using one or 2 rooms for long periods of time during the day
4. Bundle up with more clothes or a blanket and keep your thermostat a little lower than normal
5. Close the vents and doors to rooms that are not used regularly
6. Be sure that your windows and doors are properly sealed/insulated, over time seals can deteriorate.

A heat pump is an important part of central heating & cooling systems. It uses the air from outside to heat homes in the winter, as well as cool homes in the summer. A big benefit of a heat pump is that instead of generating heat, it moves it, making it more energy efficient. They are also powered by electricity rather than fuel.

By transporting heat energy, heat pumps move warm air from one place to another. Where this heat energy is moved to depends on the seasons and the task the heat pump is given. In the winter time, the heat pump will extract heat from outside and transfer it into your home. In the summer time, it will reverse directions to act like an air conditioner and remove heat from your home.

Heat pumps are most commonly found in homes in moderate climates like ours. Call Carolina Comfort Air today for questions about heat pumps and to see if a heat pump system is right for you.
