R.S. Andrews Heating and Air http://lawrencevilleairconditioning.com/ wants to pass on these tips that will save Lawrenceville, GA residents and commercial property managers a lot of money on heating and cooling bills. The cost of these upgrades will most certainly pay for themselves in a short time.
Tip #1: Upgrade
One of the first things most people do the second it gets hot is to turn on the air conditioner. This is the obvious solution, however, this works much better when you have a high efficiency unit. If the HVAC equipment is more than ten years old, Lawrenceville, 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.
Tip #2: Move the Air
Another thing residential and commercial property owners should do is to install ceiling fans. There are days when simply turning the fans on is enough to keep occupants comfortable. These simple ceiling fans keep it cool and save on the electric, too. These are perfect in the bedroom, living room and even the kitchen. They can be used with the air conditioner or without. They will keep the house cooler either way.
Tip #3: 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.
Tip #4: 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.
Tip #5: Tint Windows
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. However, if Lawrenceville, GA area residents and commercial structure managers do all of them, homes and offices will be much cooler and energy consumption will be lower, too. This is a win win situation for everyone.
