As summer draws to a close, it’s important to recognize that the weather in Suffolk County, NY can be unpredictable. The pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween decorations may be in full swing, but that doesn’t mean Mother Nature got the memo. Sometimes, it’s quite warm well into fall, while at other times, fall weather arrives right on time – with winter at its heels.
The bottom line? You’ll want to make sure your AC is in good working order for the next time you need it – whether that’s tomorrow afternoon, or not until spring. There’s no reason to be uncomfortable in your home, and with a few energy-saving tips, you can protect and preserve your investment in your AC system, so it’s ready when you need it.
Don’t let that summer energy go to waste
Keep up with your regular AC maintenance. Properly maintaining your home’s heating and cooling equipment is crucial to making sure it’s ready for the next season. It keeps your HVAC system at its best efficiency and your energy costs low while preventing breakdowns and costly repairs.
Replace worn weatherstripping, seals, and insulation. Upgrading the protective materials that insulate your home can really help your energy efficiency. When you prevent temperate air from escaping, and intemperate air from making its way indoors, your HVAC system won’t spend as much energy working to get to your desired temperature. That’s true for both your AC and your heater – and if the systems share ductwork, they can impact each other, no matter what season it is.
Replace air filters. The dirtier and more obstructed your air filter gets, the more energy it uses to push air through your ducts. Don’t pay more to circulate dirty air that creates greater wear and tear on your systems. Protect your investments by installing a clean filter regularly.
Install ductless mini-splits to keep your home cooler with better energy efficiency. With a ductless mini-split, you can set a certain temperature for a single room or for multiple rooms. For a whole-house solution, Swezey can handle the installation for multiple systems, all of which can be controlled remotely. Even if you have ductwork in place already, mini-splits can give your cooling a boost in the rooms you spend the most time in, helping you save energy costs overall while increasing your comfort. The expert technicians at Swezey can install a high-quality, high-efficiency mini-split air conditioning system in any room of your Long Island home.
