Tips for Making Your Attic Air Tight
If you want to reduce energy costs, start by looking for air leaks in your attic. Cover gaps where chimneys and furnace flues penetrate your attic floor with flashing or seal with heat resistant caulk. Seal holes or tears in air ducts with mastic or foil tape. Then insulate. Contact us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, for help with conducting a complete energy audit of your home. With just a few simple suggestions, we can help you increase comfort and save money, too.
Choosing the Right SEER
As summer heats up, you might be thinking about a new air conditioner. Do your wallet a favor and choose a high efficiency model. New air conditioners come labeled with a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), a standard that lets you calculate how much electricity the air conditioner will consume. The higher the SEER, the less it will cost you to operate the appliance to achieve the same level of cooling. As HVAC experts, Westinghouse can help you navigate the many options available in energy efficient air conditioning. Call us to set up a consultation 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. "
