Maximize the Heat from Your Fireplace
A roaring fire looks warm, but is it really? Here are a few easy ways you can help your fireplace heat more efficiently and save costly energy in the process. Install tempered glass doors and a heat-air exchange system that blows warmed air back into the room. Purchase grates made of C-shaped metal tubes to draw cool room air into the fireplace and circulate warm air back into the room. The Westinghouse HVAC experts have lots of other ideas on how you can save energy, as well as heater models that can cut your annual energy bills significantly. Call us for more information today.
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.
Tips On Using Curtains or Blinds
Are your summer A/C costs getting out of control? Use fans and set your thermostat three to five degrees higher. Because fans delay or reduce the need for air conditioning, each degree of higher temperature can save about three percent on energy costs. As Westinghouse HVAC experts, we can recommend even more money saving ideas and advice on energy efficient A/C equipment. Give us a call today.
