Wait!  I think Winter is officially over and you know what that's time to make sure your air conditioning system is in tiptop working condition.  Give us a call so we can perform a Spring maintenance on your system. 

  1. A blower door test and Aeroseal are the best ways to find and seal leaks.  We offer both these services, but if it’s not feasible at this time, here are a few tips on how to save money on energy bills without breaking the bank.

  2. Keep hot air out, caulk and/or put weather stripping around doors and windows that leak air.   Don’t forget to check the basement floor and walls for cracks and caulk them as well.  You will be surprised how much warm air these cracks will let in. Use foam sealant for larger gaps around windows and other areas that are leaking. 

  3. When it's hot, avoid using the oven; cook on the stove, in the microwave or on the grill. Turn off lights, TVs, computers, and monitors when you’re not using a room.  Plug these items into a power strip to make it easier to turn them on and off.

  4. If you are going to be away from your home for more than 8 hours, bump your temperature up a few degrees.  Then when you get home, lower the temperature.  Remember don't crank your thermostat down to cool your home faster—it does not work.

  5. Keep curtains closed during the day to keep the sunlight from warming your house.

  6. Check the insulation in your attic.  To help add comfort to your home, add insulation to your attic and access door.

  7. Think about replacing incandescent bulbs with fluorescent and/or LED light bulbs. 

  8. Lower your water heater thermostat to 120*

  9. To conserve water, take short showers instead of baths. Wash only full loads of clothes and air dry.  When using your dryer, check your dryer vent to make sure it is not blocked.

  10. Check for open fireplace dampers to prevent warm air from creeping into your house.
