Paul's Anytime Plumbing, Heating & Cooling is your local cooling repair and service experts!
Much like the winters, Colorado summer's can be punishing on you and your cooling system. Keeping your AC unit maintained is the key to summer long performance and lower energy bills.
AC maintenance is critical during the peak months of the summer heat. Replacing your Air conditioning filters is the number one item a homeowner can do to ensure lower energy costs and better performance.
“Replacing a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one can lower your air conditioner's energy consumption by 5% to 15%.” ~ U.S.Department of Energy
Consider replacing them every month or two to help improve air quality and air flow to your furnace or AC.
HOW A/C WORKS
Air conditioning, or cooling, is more complicated than heating. Instead of using energy to create heat, air conditioners use energy to take heat away. The most common air conditioning system uses a compressor cycle (similar to the one used by your refrigerator) to transfer heat from your house to the outdoors.
PROPER MAINTENANCE = HIGHER EFFICIENCY = LOWER UTILITY BILLS
Normal use of your HVAC systems makes equipment work harder to provide ongoing levels of comfort, especially in hotter than normal summer seasons. This wear-and-tear will cause your cooling system to become less efficient, which translates to higher operating costs to you. Without proper maintenance and repairs, even with new equipment, HVAC systems can lose close to one percent of its efficiency (if not more) per year if it is not properly maintained.
NEW FURNACE REQUIREMENTS ARE COMING!
Government regulations will soon require all new furnaces to have Electronically Commutated blower fan motors (ECM) because of their efficiency in use of electricity.
Programmable ECM high efficiency blowers can be added to your existing equipment, moving air more efficiently and resulting in substantially lower monthly utility bills.
Savings per year can average $600, in some cases.
