Our tips to keep your cool and heat
By following these heating and air conditioning tips, you will maintain your air conditioning system clean and in good shape. Also, you will keep your cool and heat.
Change your air conditioning filter every month: It is really important to replace your filter every month. If the filter is dirty, it will slow down air flow and make the system work harder to keep you warm or cool. And, in the long run, it represents a waste of energy in your house. The Indoor Air Care team recommends keeping a clean filter not only for the efficiency and good performance of the equipment but also because it will prevent dust and dirt from building up in the system that can lead to an air conditioning expensive maintenance and/or early equipment failure.
Tune up your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system every semester: Two yearly tune-ups of your heating and air conditioning system can improve efficiency and comfort and prevent future inconveniences with the performance of your Air Conditioning system.
Install a programmable thermostat: By installing a programmable thermostat and using it appropriately, you would save around $180 every year in the energy bill especially if you are away from home for long periods of time.
Seal your heating and air conditioning ducts: Sealing and insulating ducts are the perfect ways to improve the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning system by as much as 20% or even more.
Control the sources of pollution: To improve your indoor air at home, you must eliminate individual sources of pollution or reduce their emissions.
Ventilate: Increasing the amount of fresh air brought indoors helps reduce pollutants inside. So when weather permits, open windows and doors.
Adjust Humidity: The humidity inside can affect your indoor air quality due to the concentrations of indoor air pollutants. To decrease humidity, open the windows if it is not humid outdoors but if it is warm, turn on the air conditioning system.
