Insulation Contractors in Hidalgo County

Rather than waiting in Hidalgo County for a problem to happen with your HVAC unit, why not prevent the problem all together? To do so, your a/c unit must be serviced, even when there are no trace of problems. Luckily, each of the following preventative maintenance tasks are simple, inexpensive and fast:

  • Replace the air filter: Indoor air quality, energy efficiency and Cooling potential will {all be adversely affected by a grimy air conditioner filter which will put more strain on the ac unit. These should be commonly inspected and replaced if required every 30 days depending on A/C usage, animals and filth.  To an a/c unit a soiled filter is like asking you to sprint a marathon while wearing a mask.

  • Investigate insulation around the residence: The same insulation that keeps the home warm in the cold serves to keep it refreshing during summer. Inspect all the doors in the building to make sure the climate stripping is still creating a seal, and adjust the thresholds if paramount to bypass a gap around the bottom of the door. Crawlspaces, attics and basements can all be sources of air leaks, so Survey all of them for cracks in insulation and add insulation as required. For windows with opening upper halves, make sure the top half is fastened. This can also pose a security risk and also lets in humidity.

  • Use floor and ceiling fans when feasible: An overhead fan can definitely make a place to feel several degrees colder, allowing the homeowner to up the temperature on the thermostat and lower A/C run time. During the summer months, the fan needs to be adjusted to run in a counterclockwise direction to thrust colder air down and build a breeze effect.

  • Use a programmable or smart thermostat: Programmable and Smart thermostats bring the ability for home owners to relish in their favored cooler climate while at their home, but more particularly they can be set to scale down HVAC unit run times when the house is empty. Set the thermostat up for workdays and when the home is empty and shorten for weekends and evenings. Home owners will save a stunning chunk on the energy bill by doing this while feeling no serious change. On days when the temperature is well over 90 degrees, schedule the thermostat at 75 or lower. Humidity and heat might build up fast inside homes, and it is best not to stress the a/c unit as it turns on.

  • Be aware of sources of heat: Cooking in an oven or on a stove top frequently or for long amounts of time, burning many candles and leaving incandescent lights on can all increase surprising quantity of heat to the dwelling. Running various appliances at once will also increase both humidity and heat to the residence. Choosing colder foods for summer such as salads and sandwiches will still bring robust {options}choices} while lowering the temperature. Be sure to only light occupied rooms as necessary, and think about choosing air fresheners over scented candles during the summer months as well.
