SPRING Your HVAC System Forward Today
National is super excited that spring seems to have finally sprung! However, with the warmer weather, we recommend taking some actions to SPRING your HVAC system forward today!
Changing out your old (or should we call it retro?) thermostat can save you lots of money, especially once your air conditioning starts kicking in again. Running your unit constantly not only adds wear and tear on your system, but it also adds money to your utility bill, too! National can help switch out your current thermostat for a programmable one…there are even thermostats you can adjust remotely via your cell phone or computer. Technology can definitely help save you some money.
Insulate And Seal Ducts
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), leaking ductwork can be responsible for up to 25% of your home’s efficiency losses. We can help you take a look to seal up your ductwork to improve your AC’s efficiency. Checking on your insulation levels in the springtime is also a great idea. The moderate temperatures make spring a perfect opportunity to add in an extra layer before the heat of the summer months.
Like a car, your air conditioner is a machine which requires routine maintenance. Give National a call today to set up a “wellness check” for your system. We will check the belts, motors, and other moving pieces to make sure that your air conditioning unit is working well! We can even take a look at your filters.
Did you know that a good 15-20% of the heat in your home or office enters through…windows?! Adding curtains or putting a large ficus plant in front of them can reduce this amount. Also, adding things like ceiling fans can reduce temperatures in your home by up to 5 degrees for a minimal cost.
Don’t forget to give National a call to set up your “spring into spring” air conditioning check…or to set your clocks forward one hour on Sunday, March 13th!
