Make Your AC More Efficient In the Summer, by Maintaining it in the Spring
If you want to get your A/C ready for the summer, start in the spring. Clear leaves and dirt from the inside of your unit’s top grill. Trim nearby landscaping to allow at least two feet of clearance around the unit. Set the thermostat to cooling mode and run your A/C a few minutes to confirm that it’s working. Then call us to schedule an annual checkup. As the Westinghouse heating and air experts, we’ll ensure your system is in top working order so you’ll never have to sweat a summer A/C breakdown.
Don't Let Your Fireplace Work Against You
It’s hard to believe, but your fireplace could be making your home colder and forcing your heater to work harder. Warmed air can fly right up your chimney, so keep the damper closed unless there’s a fire going. You can also keep reduce drafts by caulking around the hearth and checking the seal on the flue damper to make sure it’s as snug as possible. If you never use your fireplace, consider plugging and sealing the flue completely. Combine this idea with additional tips and energy efficient equipment options from us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, to reduce annual energy costs. Call for more information today.
How to Save Energy by Using Your Thermostat
"How well are you using your programmable thermostat? Think about when your family wakes up, leaves the house and goes to bed. Then, set your thermostat to change temperature at these times. Realize winter savings by programming your thermostat to drop by eight degrees when you’re away and when you’re sleeping. In the summer, increase the temperature by seven degrees when you’re away and by four degrees when you’re sleeping. And never override your thermostat or place it on hold. Turning the temperature way up or down won’t make your system heat or cool faster, but it will make it work overtime and wreak havoc on your energy bills. Ask us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, how to optimize your settings during your next pre-season checkup. It could save you as much as $180 a year. "
