Stay Cool This Summer

It’s an El Niño year and that means we’re more likely to have some extreme summer temperatures. Some people like it hot, but most people are going to try and avoid temperatures in the 90s and 100s. This means we’ll be using our AC a lot. Heating and cooling are already the top consumers of power – and the biggest contributors to our energy bills – for a home. If you want to stay cool this summer, it might be a good idea to make sure your home is as energy efficient as possible. Here’s a few tips to beat the summer heat.

Air Conditioning Tune Up Logan Utah1. Tune Up Your AC

You’re going to be using your AC a lot, so you want to make sure it’s in the best condition. There are a lot of moving parts to an air conditioner and moving parts will create friction. Friction creates wear and tear that hurts the efficiency. Just like a car needs a regular oil change, your AC needs regular maintenance to keep it running at its best. If you don’t, then the AC will be less effective, resulting in more energy just to get the same result.

2. Air Duct Cleaning

Your ducts are an important part of your AC as well. They spread the cool air throughout the home, so they need some regular maintenance, too. Dust can clog your vents and ducts, disrupting the flow of air. This means less cool air will get through your ducts and your HVAC will have to work harder to get the same results. If it’s been more than 5 years since your last air duct cleaning, less if you have older ducts with less efficient filters, then you should call us today. We can help you determine if your cleaning is needed and do the job for you. We’ll even do an air duct sanitizing as part of the service.

3. Clean Your Dryers and Dryer Vents

Some like it hot, but nobody likes to be literally on fire. That can happen, though, if you don’t properly clean out your dryer vents. During the summer, the hot air outside will quickly dry out the lint in your vent, which can make it more prone to starting a fire. Even if it doesn’t start a fire, that lint can cause the hot air to blow back into your laundry room, heating your house instead of cooling it. We can also clean up your dryer vents for you while doing your air ducts, saving you some time and money getting all done together.

Like your HVAC, the dryer also needs regular maintenance. Some of the problems you can run into with a poorly maintained dyer might be overheating, or it might fail to dry your clothes properly. Running an extra cycle for a single load just to get it fully dried is a huge waste of energy when that can easily be fixed. For dryer maintenance, we recommend our friends at Cache Appliance Repair.

Bonus: Reduce Allergy Issues

While we’re all trying to beat the heat, there’s also issues with pollen and other allergens still in the air. These can get into your air ducts, causing your AC to carry them around your house. We can help with that, too. Many of our customers report that after we’ve cleaned out their ducts, they have a lot less issues with their allergies. That’s because our cleaning will pull all those allergens out of your ducts, leaving you with fresh, clean air to breathe.
