Tips, Tricks & Insights About HVAC

The evaporator coil in your air handler plays a crucial role in keeping your home cool during the Louisiana summer. A leak can be small enough that it goes undetected on a day-to-day basis, costing you money as you attempt to compensate through reduced thermostat settings. Your air conditioning system will also compensate by running for longer periods to reach the desired temperature. Although the issue may seem minor, you should realize that an undercharge of about 10 percent in your refrigerant supply could result in an efficiency decrease of 20 percent. Leaks need to be identified and addressed as promptly as possible to limit your costs.

Cutting utility bills is a top priority for many Sunset LA homeowners, and at the height of the cooling season, there’s no better place to start than by adjusting your thermostat. Even a very small adjustment can save you dozens or hundreds of dollars over the course of the summer, so it’s a change well worth making. Here’s how to find the right AC setting for your home and budget.

You may be concerned with hot spots in part of your home as you operate your air conditioning equipment. While the mechanical equipment may be working correctly, the delivery system could be a source of inconsistent comfort control, especially if there are leaks or other signs of damage in your ducts. If you have noticed inconsistent performance throughout your home, especially inconsistencies in temperatures, then air conditioner balancing may prove helpful for improving your home’s comfort levels.

The summer weather in Southwest Louisiana is hot and humid, which is why the indoor cooling load in our area is so extreme. In Scott, LA, air conditioning is a necessity, and electricity bills are usually very high. For many homeowners, the cost of running an air conditioner can account for as much as 60 percent of the total power consumed during the summer months. Whether your focus is on reducing monthly utility bills or lowering your family’s environmental impact, slightly altering your daily living habits can make your home more comfortable, healthy and fuel efficient.

Americans spend most of their time indoors and the bulk of that indoor time at home, which means most of the air we breathe every day is the air in our own houses. Promoting great indoor air quality in your house can have a huge impact on your quality of life. Conversely, letting indoor air pollution run rampant will make it tough to breathe. Here are a few ways to address air pollution in your home.
