5 Ways to Prevent Indoor Air Pollution

Low indoor air quality causes difficulty with breathing, clogged air vents and a rise in allergies, among other things. Here are five ways that you can prevent indoor air pollution. Check the insulation on all doors and windows. A great deal of indoor air pollution comes from outside. Your doors and windows may shift during extreme changes in weather. Check their insulation to make sure that you are protected from outdoor elements. Have your HVAC system cleaned regularly.

Go Green and Keep Your Green Where It Belongs… Your Wallet!

April 24, 2015

Reducing The Energy Consumption Of Your HVAC System Rising energy costs are almost as predictable as the fact that the seasons will change. Throughout the hot summer months and the cold winter months, your home’s HVAC unit must work a bit extra to keep you comfortable inside your home. Listed below are a couple different tips and tricks to lowering your home’s energy consumption. Keep Your System Maintained And Your Home Properly Sealed Routine maintenance of your home’s HVAC unit helps ensure that it is always running at peak performance. When filters get clogged or the system is not maintained in general, it must work much harder to keep you comfortable. A well maintained HVAC unit will run at peak performance and help ensure that it is not using more energy than necessary to keep your home cool or warm. Drafts that happen within your home from windows or doors that are not properly sealed work against the HVAC unit in your home. Drafts allow outside air into the home, whether it is cool air in the winter, or warm air during the summer. Keeping your home properly sealed is just as important during the summer months as it is...

Allergens are Everywhere this Season…

April 17, 2015

Make Your Home Allergen Free   If you suffer from allergic asthma or hay fever, then it is important to take precautionary measures to avoid health complications this spring. Reducing indoor allergens is the best way, but outdoor setup influences the intensity of these allergens too and should not be set aside when preparing for spring. Allergy attacks occur when delicate membranes such as those found in the throat, nose and eyes get exposed to substances perceived by your immune system as a threat. Following these three steps will go a long way in ensuring your home is allergy-proof. 1. Regular cleaning While you might need to enjoy the weather when spring sets in, limiting the amount of pollen that gets blown inside the house will partly solve this menace. Regular cleaning removes pollen and other allergens that get stuck in your house. Materials that generate dust such as carpets should regularly be cleaned to help keep the house dust free. Acquiring a vacuum cleaner that has high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter will help when you have to clean your carpets. Still, it can be done by seeking the services of a professional company to do periodic cleaning. 2. Choose...

Understanding Your A/C Unit Starts Here

April 10, 2015

Evaporator Coils  Evaporator coils are the lifeblood of your air conditioning. The coils help create the cool air that circulates through your system with the assistance of coolant. You must learn how the coils operate, and you can check them for damage. The steps listed in this article allow you to maintain your HVAC unit properly. What Do Evaporator Coils Do? Evaporator coils hold the coolant that changes the temperature in the house. Your coils use a steady flow of coolant that will leak when the coils are damaged. You can easily inspect these coils by removing the casing on your air conditioner, or you can ask your HVAC technician to handle this part of the job for you. Common Issues With Evaporator Coils Evaporator coils experience cracking after repeated use. The tight bends in the coils will break after the metal in the tubes wears down. You may observe leaking fluid in the bottom of the air conditioner, and you may notice the coils leaning out of their brackets. These problems are common because the coolant is so heavy. Your HVAC technician can replace the brackets, replace the coils or patch small holes in the coils. How Do You...

Understanding SEER Ratings

April 3, 2015

SEER Rating   When buying a new HVAC unit, it is important for customers to fully understand what the SEER rating on the unit means. The SEER rating has a lot to do with how much energy is used in a home and that is a very important aspect of buying an HVAC unit. What Does The SEER Rating On Your AC Unit Mean? The SEER rating on an HVAC unit can be interpreted as the ratio between cold air output during the warm months of the year and the amount of electricity used to produce the cold air. When looking for a new HVAC unit, homeowners want to look for the highest SEER rating possible because this represents the most energy efficient unit. How Does This Rating Effect Your Energy Consumption? The SEER rating on an HVAC unit directly effects energy consumption within the home. The higher the SEER rating on an HVAC unit, the less energy that is used. In air conditioning terms, it is how many BTU’s are used per hour or per watt. A law passed in the year 2006 required all HVAC units for residential properties to have a minimum SEER rating of 13. Older...
