Energy Savings by Treat’s Heating & Cooling
During hot weather, a central air conditioner can account for 30 percent of your energy bill. Check the air filter on a regular basis, a clean air filter improves system efficiency, which should lead to energy savings.
The recommended thermostat setting is between 75 and 78 degrees. Every degree you raise your thermostat can result in a 5% savings on the cost of cooling your home.
Have a professional at Treat’s Heating & Cooling check your air conditioning system to ensure that it works properly and is not leaking coolant.
Be sure all windows are shut and outside doors are closed when the AC is on.
It is important not to have lamps, televisions or other heat sources close to the air conditioner thermostat, heat from these sources may cause the air conditioner unit to run longer than it should.
Always check to ensure that no furniture or other obstacles are blocking the ducts or fans. This will enable cooled air to circulate freely, making your home more comfortable.
Tune up your heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system with an annual maintenance contract. Like a vehicle, your heating and cooling equipment can decline in performance without regular maintenance.
