If your air conditioner had a hard time keeping you cool this summer, it's time to talk to your HVAC contractor about a new system. The problems you experienced this summer will only get worse with each passing year. Not only that but letting the problems get worse could result in a breakdown that will require emergency replacement, which you want to avoid at all costs since an emergency breakdown means that you'll be without cool air for at least a few days.
As the summer heat continues, you count on your air conditioning unit to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. The return air vent will pull air into the ducts to pass through the system and be cooled. The unit will work and work, cycling on and off to push the cool air out through the vents. While the system will continue to work on its own for a while, if you don't take care of it, you will end up with a high electric bill and the unit will start to break down.
Commercial air conditioning repair is something that should be handled by licensed contractors. While many HVAC technicians will be licensed and insured for both residential and commercial repairs, you should still make sure that any pros you hire actually have commercial experience. Residential HVAC contractors are far easier to come by. This article looks at three of the most common issues that you might have with commercial HVAC systems.
Keeping staff and customers comfortable in the hot summer months is important to any business owner, but it is also important to manage the bottom line by avoiding overly large energy bills. Unfortunately, the AC can lead to high bills if it isn't managed correctly. The following three tips can help you keep everyone cool while avoiding extra costs.
Tip #1: Secure the controls
Whether on purpose or from an accidental bump, adjusting the AC to an overly low temperature leads to higher bills and possible discomfort as those dressed for summer are exposed to frigid indoor temperatures.
Heat pumps are great at keeping a home comfortably warm, but a common problem with these appliances is they have a tendency to freeze up when it's snowing and/or temperatures are really low. Although the machine does activate a defrost cycle to help get rid of the ice, that's energy that could be better used on other tasks. Here are two things you can do to keep your heat pump nice and ice-free this season.
