Your air conditioning (known as AC) is a system that removes heat and moisture from an enclosed space, be it a home, office, warehouse, car, and so on, usually to improve the living conditions for those inside. Interestingly enough, your air conditioning system works more or less the same as your refrigerator. The significant difference is the size of the space each has to cool. The way AC works, however, revolves around some pretty simple principles.
If you own an older home, you do not have to adopt a "come what may" attitude when it comes to your home's energy efficiency, or lack of it, and your steadily rising utility bills. Here are nine ways you can improve the energy efficiency of an older home without the need for significant structural changes, expensive remodeling projects, or a major construction undertaking.
If it's 100 degrees outside and we set our thermostat to 60, we're putting the AC system under considerable strain. Prolong the life of your system and avoid any unnecessary repairs down the line by following the 20-degree rule.
When it comes to the comfort of our own homes, almost nothing impact as much as the HVAC system. Unless the heater breaks down in the middle of a blizzard or the AC unit stops working during a heat wave, we usually pay little to no attention to it.
From the best romantic restaurants to the best schools, this is your chance to nominate and vote for your local favorites. And we hope you'll choose Frederick Air for Best Heating & Air Company!
According to an analysis conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), average Americans spend roughly 90% of their time indoors. As a result, the air quality inside our homes needs to be given top priority. But indoor air quality can sometimes be two to five times poorer than outside, depending on the time of day, the activities that happen inside, and the state of the HVAC system itself.
There are many moving parts within any air conditioning system, with every one of them, needing to be in proper order for the entire system to work efficiently. Neglecting to do regular maintenance and proper repairs to your AC system will ensure a steady decline regarding its performance, all the while raising your energy use, as well as your costs.
Most of us spend the majority of our time indoors, so it’s of major importance to ensure proper air quality in our living spaces. The air pollution that exists outside is undeniable and people take all sorts of precautions to protect themselves and their loved ones, but they are often unaware of the fact that the air inside our homes can be just as polluted.
