Roswell, GA (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
There is a heat wave about to hit Roswell, GA. Temperatures and humidity will skyrocket soon and R.S. Andrews Heating and Air wants to pass on these tips that will save Roswell, residents and commercial property managers a lot of money on heating and cooling bills. The cost of these upgrades or services will most certainly pay for themselves in a short time.
Have the Unit Serviced. The recommendation for servicing an ac unit is at least once per year, ideally before the cooling season begins. This should only be done by a licensed professional.
Often, a service agreement can be arranged with the contractor who installed the unit. Improper maintenance usually voids the warranty.
Change the Furnace Filter
The filter for the air conditioner is located at or near the return supply vent. Depending on what type of filter is installed, it needs to be changed or cleaned every one to six months.
Clean the Evaporator and Condensing Coil
For the evaporator coil, check the condensate drain for blockage. Clean it with bleach and water or a special cleaner. Clean dust and debris from the fins. Be careful as they are delicate. The same basic process applies to the condensing coil, but a garden hose can be used in place of or along with the cleaner.
Upgrade to High SEER Rated HVAC Equipment
If the HVAC equipment is more than ten years old, Roswell, GA area residents would benefit from upgrading the air conditioner to a higher SEER rated model. The reason why is simple. The higher the equipment’s SEER rating, the more energy the homeowner will save and the more comfort their family will enjoy.
Install a Nest Thermostat
There is a great product that can help to keep homes and offices cool and save money at the same time. These are called Nest learning thermostats and every home and office should have them. They learn the temperature that occupants like and are able to turn themselves on and off to keep the temperature at the correct setting. One of these installed by R.S. Andrews in every heating and cooling zone of the structure can add up to staying cool and cost is effective too.
Add Insulation to the Attic
Don't forget to add insulation to the attic. This is where the most heat is lost during the winter and where most of the heat come in during the summer months. By adding the correct amount of insulation, building owners are going to see an improvement all the way around.
Also, it never hurts to install some window tinting. This will help to reflect the heat and save money in the long run.
Remember, doing just one of these simple tips can amount to huge savings. Properly maintaining the air conditioning system generates increased longevity and efficiency, resulting in out-of-pocket savings over the long term. Representatives at R.S. Andrews are available to assist with any of the air conditioning choices.
