How can one avoid the big cooling/air conditioning bills? How can one reduce cost of living while increasing comfort at the same time? These are a couple simple questions we are going to give you big answers to!
Let’s start with your existing system. We will do a full maintenance blog in the future so keep an eye out for that, but we want to touch on air conditioning maintenance because it directly effects the way your air conditioner runs. Simple preventative maintenance can reduce operating cost and extend your air conditioners life span! Yes, you need to have our service tech out to do routine maintenance on your air conditioner. We prefer springtime before you get in the cooling season. Many of the emergency calls we do are simply due to lack of maintenance. Maybe is the animal the made a home in your air conditioner to make it through a Michigan winter. We go through a full check list of electrical components and refrigeration circuit on your air conditioning system. Michigan’s climate can be challenging, we have extreme winters, and hot summers with lots of humidity. This is hard on all mechanical equipment. What can you do on your own to help efficiency?
Keeping your outdoor air conditioner clean is a major factor to an efficient running system. Our Office in Lapeer, Michigan for example has lots of landscaping, cottonwood trees etc. We spay our condenser (outdoor air conditioner) coils out a couple times per summer. Maybe when your watering flowers make a mental not to spay it off. Don’t use chemicals, no power washer, no brushes, let us do the heavy cleaning if necessary. The next big thing is operation. This also leads us to newer technology and how INVERTER technology is becoming the new normal in the Air conditioning world.
The days of programmable thermostats or the need for a thermostat with a program to set the temperature different for when one is not home will be a thing of the past. Inverter systems modulate to match the cooling load of your home. So instead of the same old 13 seer or less air conditioner that just comes on and off all day long, an inverter is like cruise control in your car.
The air conditioner modulates to create only the amount of cooling your home needs. Inverter systems are extremely efficient, in some cases they could even cut your cooling bills in half! These systems operate best by just picking a temperature and letting the air conditioner work. There are lots of other benefits to inverter driven air conditioners aside from efficiency.
Comfort is greatly increased. Inverter technology helps prevent the common, and uncomfortable, temperature swings normally experienced with non-inverter HVAC systems. An inverter system can reach your comfort setting quicker and help to minimize temperature fluctuations within your home. How about sound, what if we told you that you would never have to hear your air conditioner again? Sounds pretty good huh! Take the Daikin FIT for example, it takes 72 Daikin Fit air conditioners to equal the sound of a box style air conditioner.
