3 Reasons to Consider AC Replacement this Summer

Monday, June 27th, 2016

The central air unit, heat pump, or ductless mini split that you use every day during the summer is not something that will last indefinitely. Sooner or later, it will require a repair service, and eventually it will become dysfunctional enough to warrant replacement. But how do you know how to make the call? There are several factors to take into account, and it’s often a combination of them that will ultimately inform your decision. Here are 3 reasons why you might want to at least consider replacement.

3 Ways to Save on Your Cooling Bills this Summer

Monday, June 20th, 2016

Every minute that your air conditioner runs, it requires a certain amount of energy. The compressor needs electricity to power the refrigerant cycle that sucks the heat out of your indoor air. Crisp, cool air is what every homeowner in Anaheim wants, and certainly what they deserve. But all of that cold air adds up to serious energy use, which is money out of your pocket. Here are 3 ways to cut costs this summer, without sacrificing your comfort:

#1 Consider a QuietCool Whole-House Fan

Did you know that you might be able to save anywhere from 50-90% on your cooling bills with a fan? We install and service QuietCool whole-house and attic fans, which pull all of the hot air from inside the home at key times during the late afternoon and evening. Call us to set up a demo or schedule an estimate.

#2 Invest in a “Smart” Thermostat

It might only take a relatively small device to improve your overall energy efficiency. Installing a wifi-enabled, “smart” thermostat (a Honeywell WiFi 9000 Color Touchscreen is our recommendation!) gives you unprecedented control over your temperature. You can even control your comfort via your smartphone or tablet. That means no more leaving on the AC accidentally in your scramble to get to work on time.

# 3 Call for a Professional AC Tune-up

Frankly, if you’re not taking care of your central air unit or heat pump with a tune-up, then you’re taking care of your comfort. Considering the heat of our area, it’s imperative that you keep your air filters clean, your refrigerant levels charged, and your system clean. The only way to do so is with routine air conditioning maintenance. That’s a service that we proudly offer!
