    Tips for Changing Your Air Filter

    Last updated 7 months ago

    In order to ensure the quality of your indoor air, it’s important to change out your air filter for a new one every month. Not only will a clean air filter keep your air safe to breathe, but it will also ensure more efficient cooling and heating in your home. In most cases, you can find what kind of filter you need—and what size it should be—by consulting your HVAC manual.

    Replacing the filter is a simple procedure. Simply remove the panel, take out the old filter, and carefully fit the new filter into the empty space. The filter should have an arrow that tells you which direction it should be faced; it should be pointing away from you. This is a good time to dust off the panel and the surrounding area, if necessary.

    How to Make Your Home More Energy-Efficient

    Last updated 7 months ago

    Every home in the world uses energy—but not all homes use it wisely. By making your home more energy-efficient, you’ll not only help the environment, but also enjoy potential savings and better heating and cooling. There are even a number of federal tax incentives available for household that install energy-saving systems and devices. Here are some simple things you can do to start saving energy in your home.

    Checking your insulation. Energy loss is an invisible process. In many homes, energy seeps out through windows, walls, doors, and attic spaces—which means that your HVAC system needs to work that much harder to heat or cool your home. By having your insulation inspected by a professional, you can decide whether the time has come to upgrade.

    Upgrading your windows. An estimated 30 percent of a typical home’s heating energy is lost through its windows. Fortunately, you can help prevent that by replacing older windows with new, Energy Star approved models. These windows will reflect the sun’s rays, insulate your indoor air, and reduce the need for you to run your furnace and air conditioning.

    Replacing your furnace. The older your heating system is, the more likely it is to be outdated and inefficient. Today’s heating systems are both more efficient and less wasteful, and installing a brand-new system may help you reduce your utility bills. To get started, talk to a heating and cooling service technician today about getting an energy audit and upgrading your HVAC system.

    If you’re interested in learning more about how to save money on your monthly energy bills, contact Presidential Heating & Air Conditioning. Our experienced technicians know the ins and outs of HVAC systems, and we can help ensure that your air conditioning and furnace are running at full capacity.

    Making Your Home More Efficient In the Summer

    When the afternoons start to heat up, most homeowners will begin using their air conditioning more often. But there are a number of tricks you can use to help keep your monthly utility bills from rising as fast as the temperature.

    As this video explains, you should change out your air filters once a month in order to keep your HVAC system running as efficiently as possible. You should also double-check the insulation around your windows; inadequate insulation can let out heat and make your air conditioning work harder to cool down your home.

    Getting Your Heating System Ready for Cooler Temperatures

    Last updated 7 months ago

    It may not be jacket weather yet, but it’s not too early to start thinking about how you can keep your home heating system running at full capacity when you will most need it. Furnaces see a lot of use during the cold months, and proper maintenance is essential to keep them from breaking down. Here are some tips for preparing your heating system for winter.

    Change out your air filter. You should replace your air filter on a monthly basis. Having a clean air filter is essential to maintaining good indoor air quality and keeping an HVAC system running smoothly and efficiently. Changing an air filter is an easy task that you can perform yourself, and while you’re at it you can also take the time to dust your vents and make sure that nothing is blocking the flow of air.

    Have a professional inspection. Even if nothing is obviously wrong with your heating system, having it checked by an HVAC professional before winter is always a smart idea. An experienced technician will have an eye for details that others would miss, and he will be able to determine whether your system will stay in good shape during the cold months.

    Consider replacing your furnace. How old is your heating system? If it’s more than 10 years old, you should seriously consider an upgrade. Newer furnaces are designed to be as efficient as possible, which means that you’ll be able to keep your home warm without having to face exorbitant energy bills.
