If an HVAC system more than ten years old, upgrade to a more energy efficient model. Technology has advanced in the heating and cooling field and a high SEER rating will significantly cut energy consumption.
Marietta, GA (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
Weather reports for the Marietta, GA area have temperatures topping out as high as 92 degrees F this week, with very high levels of humidity. A combination of high humidity and temperatures will mean the air conditioners or heat pumps will run constantly to keep up.
But R.S. Andrews, an A+ rated air conditioning repair contractor http://www.airconditioningmarietta.com/ that services the Marietta - Atlanta region has several suggestions that, when implemented, will reduce the load on the cooling equipment. A reduced burden will lower utility bills and may just be enough to prevent a major breakdown and the accompanying high ac repair bill.
Buildings that are occupied all day long may seem difficult to find ways to lower energy consumption during the hot summer months. However, there are simple steps to take to make energy consumption lower without reducing the level of comfort for the occupants. R.S. Andrews shares some easy to use ideas that will do just that.
If an HVAC system more than ten years old, upgrade to a more energy efficient model. Technology has advanced in the heating and cooling field and an upgrade to an air conditioner with a high SEER rating will significantly cut energy consumption. It also stands to reason that new equipment will not breakdown as often as worn out systems.
Another thing all residential and commercial property managers should do is to install ceiling fans. There are days when all that is required is to turn the fans on and the occupants will feel cooler and save on the electric too. Ceiling fans can be used with the air conditioner or without. They will keep the house cooler either way.
Install a Nest Learning Thermostat - The Nest Learning Thermostat is taught by the occupants of the building the temperature and schedule that people in the structure comfortable. One of these in every heating and cooling zone of the structure can reduce unnecessary cooling and cost effective too.
Don't forget to add insulation to the attic. This is where the a lot heat is gained into the living area of the structure. During the summer months, attic temperatures will hit 140 degrees F or more, adding additional load onto an already overworked cooling system. By adding the correct amount of insulation occupants will see an improvement in comfort year round.
