You can dream, right?
As the entire city is being covered in a thin sheet of ice, you can dream of a warmer time. A time when the air conditioners have to run nonstop to keep the house comfortable. It is the middle of winter in Nebraska, but you are in the process of starting to schedule the air conditioning maintenance appointments for the spring so that your home is ready for the warm temperatures of the summer.
Many home owners make the mistake of selecting less expensive products and services. In an effort to save a few hundred, or even thousand, dollars, however, these same home owners actually end up costing themselves more money. Often, the most high quality heat pumps and other heating and cooling systems will be more efficient, have longer warranties, and may even come with local air conditioning repair company service calls.
Although two-thirds of all homes in America currently have air conditioning, not all of these cooling systems are very efficient. In fact, without scheduled air conditioning maintenance checks many systems can waste money and leave a house feeling anything but cool. Unfortunately, as many as 20% of the homes built during the 1980s still have their original air conditioning equipment. With equipment that is more than 20 years old, these homes are not only inefficient, they can also sometimes be dangerous. Did you know, for instance, that by making the switch to high-efficiency air conditioners and taking other actions to keep their homes cool, home owners can actually reduce energy used for air conditioning by 20% to 50%?
The decision to upgrade to a system that is rated as an ENERGY STAR certified central air conditioner can have an even bigger impact. For instance, these units have higher seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) as well as energy efficiency ratio (EER) ratings. In all, the savings can amount to as much as 15% more than other once efficient conventional models.
You may be sitting in front of a fireplace wrapped in a blanket right now. You may be faced with a couple of days stuck in your house as freezing rain and sleet make a skating rink out of the streets. Eventually, however, the temperatures will change. The weather will warm up.
when the warm weather arrives, make sure that your home’s air conditioning maintenance is ready for the task.
