It seems like your air conditioning costs are out of control in the summertime. But what can you do besides shut off your AC system and stay uncomfortable throughout the day and night?
Chances are high that you’re spending more than you need to. Schedule an energy audit with a qualified technician today to find out if you’re spending too much on these common home and AC system issues.
Inefficient air conditioning equipment
Old air conditioning equipment simply cannot run as efficiently as the newer models out there today. If you’ve got an air conditioner that’s over 10-15 years old, it may be time for a replacement. You’d be surprised at how much you save from month to month, and affordable financing plans are available for new high-efficiency AC equipment.
However, it’s also possible that you just need to take better care of your AC system. Schedule annual maintenance visits to keep your air conditioning equipment running smoothly, with a tune-up and cleaning to improve efficiency.
Another common reason for poor energy efficiency is the ductwork. When there are holes and cracks in the ducts, air leaks into the crawlspace or into the attic, instead of moving into the space in your home. That’s why you should call in the help a home performance expert to assess your ducts and see if you need to replace them for better efficiency. You might be paying to cool your attic!
Leaks around the home
Finally, your air conditioning system cannot effectively and efficiently cool your home if there are too many leaks around the house. Small leaks around windows, doors, and vents can really add up, potentially forming a hole in a room that’s as big as a basketball!
We can perform a blower door test during an energy audit that indicates where there is leaking around the home. Weather-stripping and caulking may be enough to solve many of your energy efficiency woes.
