A Few Important Tips For Keeping Your Heater Properly Adjusted During Extreme Cold Conditions

Maintain a set point of at least 65 degrees F, even if you are not home, to prevent your pipes from freezing. This is especially important for domestic water lines exposed to outside walls. If you have had water pipes freeze in the past, think about adding heat to these areas.

When you start shopping for a new air conditioner system, you will see many terms that might be unfamiliar. One number that might stick out is that of the SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. Before you can determine what a good rating is, you must first understand what it means for your home and overall energy efficiency.

Expert Tips for Picking the Right Sized AC

Air conditioners today come in various sizes, makes, and models. When choosing a new central air conditioner, you must consider the cooling space – number of rooms and square footage of your home – to select the appropriately sized unit. A unit that is too big or too small will cost you more than necessary. Since energy-efficiency is critical for cost savings, it’s important to get the right size the first time.

Tips to Decide if it’s the Right Time for a Replacement

Purchasing a new air conditioner is a significant investment, but a good one for your home. Deciding whether your existing AC unit is ready for replacement or has a few more years to give may be one of the more watchful decisions you will make regarding your home maintenance and upkeep.

After all, you do not want to risk it breaking down, but also don’t want to spend money prematurely. The cost of continuing to repair and maintain the old unit might push you toward replacement, as well as the long-term savings on utility bills with a new system.
