Louisville, Kentucky (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
While it may seem like frigid winter temperatures are here to stay, summer will sneak up on Kentucky residents quickly – leaving many with rising energy bills to combat the rising temperatures. Middletown Air Conditioning & Heating, a cooling repair company in Louisville, recommends taking small actions now to start preparing your home for warmer days.
TIP 1: Your furnace filters should have already been changed once by now, but take the time to change them again and change your AC filters as well. This is the number one step that most HVAC contractors recommend in order to keep your systems working properly because it’s inexpensive and simple for anyone to do.
TIP 2: Inspect your ducts for build-up. Not only will excessive build-up cause your air conditioner to work harder (costing you more in energy bills), it will also spread dangerous particles throughout your home. A simple trick to see if your ducts are clogged is to snap a picture at the entrance of your ducts. The photo won’t lie and will indicate if you need to call an air conditioning company for a professional cleaning.
TIP 3: Install a programmable thermostat. Between winter and summer, HVAC technicians have a lull in service calls, putting you at the top of the list for a convenient service time. By investing in a programmable thermostat before temperatures rise, you’ll be able to research the best deals and work with your technician to get the most feasible thermostat for your home.
