Tips, Tricks & Insights About HVAC

Indoor air quality is becoming a more serious concern as awareness is raised by entities such as the Environmental Protection Agency, which provides information about helpful IAQ solutions for the home environment. The first step for many homeowners is testing the indoor environment for pollutants and problems, which can be provided by an HVAC contractor.

Although Lafayette, Louisiana, doesn’t experience the cold winters that the northern states do – a benefit of living in the southern U.S. – it does get chilly enough to periodically turn on your heating system. To ensure your heating system is working efficiently and effectively, keep these three winter heating tips in mind.

When it comes to home comfort in Southwest Louisiana, no residential appliance is more important than a well-operating air conditioner. No matter how hot and sticky it gets outside, you count on your cooling system to keep everyone in your household cool, dry and comfortable. This year’s record-breaking heat has been particularly taxing on the region’s hard-working AC systems, but these three tips can help ensure that your air conditioner keeps going strong for the rest of the season.

Louisiana’s per-capita energy consumption is the second greatest among all states in the nation, and household heating and cooling are leading areas in which residents contribute to this level of consumption. High energy use translates into high energy costs for you as a homeowner, which makes proper balance an important concern. Air balancing of your HVAC system is typically completed when new equipment is installed to ensure that all areas of your home are heated and cooled efficiently and consistently. However, it’s easy to upset that balance over time, making it important to consider re-balancing from time to time.

Your HVAC system ensures comfortable temperatures inside your home throughout the year. Over time, however, AC systems can begin to lose efficiency and to experience more frequent breakdowns. If your heating and cooling system is more than ten years old, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends that it be inspected by a qualified HVAC professional to assess its overall running condition and efficiency and to determine if a new ENERGY STAR rated systems can reduce your utility bills while ensuring a higher degree of comfort for every member of your family. The AC installation experts at Lee’s Air Conditioning Company can provide you with the most practical and energy-efficient solutions for your Lafayette, Louisiana, climate control needs.
