Your Marco Island, FL, home may need air conditioning service so you can have energy savings this season. Accurate Comfort Systems, Inc. is ready 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide your HVAC system with a complete checkup and any repairs needed to lower your bills. There are other things you can do to save money in an older home.
The first is to insulate the attic according to the Department of Energy, or DOE standards. These were recently updated for the changing climate. The walls, floors and basements should be insulated according to these standards. Windows should be Energy Star certified and insulated. This will increase the air conditioning service because your HVAC system will not have to work as hard to cool the house.
Next is to routinely perform air conditioning service by changing or cleaning the filter. Pour a cup of bleach down the drain every month to prevent algae from growing and clogging the pipe. Every year, have an air conditioning service company clean and inspect the ducts. This ensures the highest quality of air to you and your family. The HVAC system will not have to work harder to compensate for air loss, so you achieve greater energy savings.
Choose Energy Star appliances such as a digital thermostat and water heater. The thermostat allows you to control the HVAC system even when you are not home. Your air conditioning service company can install these for you. Some models of thermostat allow you to program them from your cell phone or computer. The energy savings will pay for these appliances over time
In Marco Island, FL, older homes are not impossible to keep cool. Let Accurate Comfort Systems, Inc. be your air conditioning service to help you realize the greatest energy savings you possibly can.
