CARJON Air Conditioning & Heating Blog
While it’s easy to simply assume that your furnace is operating the way it’s supposed to, the only way to know for sure is to enlist the help of a trained professional.
High-efficiency heating and cooling systems work smarter to manage energy consumption within the home, leading to a reduction in energy bills that many people are shocked to experience.
Is there an area or room in your home that you avoid spending time in when it’s cold or hot outside? If your Rhode Island home has a space that’s always too hot during the summer and absolutely freezing in winter, you may have simply come to accept it. However, there is a simple solution that can help make your entire home comfortable year-round.
Summer is right around the corner. This has many Rhode Island homeowners thinking about ways to ensure their ACs are ready for the warm months ahead. Here are a few things that you as a homeowner can do before calling CARJON for a full HVAC system workup.
With the winter weather we’ve been having, your home’s air can be dry, causing discomfort and health issues. If you find yourself waking up with a dry and irritated nose or throat, noticing excess static electricity or still feeling cold at a temperature that’s usually comfortable — your home needs more moisture!
With the holidays right around the corner, you’ve probably started cleaning and decorating to prepare for any guests who may be visiting your home. Your guests will notice and appreciate the extra effort you put into their stay. What you don’t want them to notice is odd smells and musty air or to experience breathing difficulties.
Just like you wouldn’t have wanted your air conditioner to give out during the hot Rhode Island summer, you need to make sure your heating system is prepared for the winter. Although it might be difficult to think about and imagine right now, in a few weeks you’ll be turning on the heat in your home. You don’t want any surprises at that point, so even though it seems premature, now is the time to get your furnace ready for winter.
It’s been a hot summer in Rhode Island, and for most of us, that means our air conditioners have been running on a consistent basis to increase home comfort. For anyone who has ever experienced what it’s like to have to deal with emergency repairs when outside temperatures are at their hottest, being unprepared for summer heat is simply not an option ever again.
How it works: An indoor fan pulls warm air out of a room, which is then converted into cool air via a ductless evaporator coil and a refrigerant.
Impressive Energy Savings
Did you know that ductless systems can also provide heat? Heat pumps are as much as 40% more efficient than standard electric furnaces and baseboard heaters.
Ducts alone can lead to a 30% loss in energy consumption, and since heat pumps are ductless, this isn’t a problem.
For Rhode Island residents who are getting their homes ready for the summer, the air conditioner is often the first point of focus. Rhode Island summers tend to be comfortable, but every year brings with it at least a handful of days that are so hot that it can be difficult to stand without AC. This being said, many people don’t realize that their AC units aren’t functioning properly and perhaps have not been for quite some time.
When was the last time you checked into your AC’s efficiency rating?
