What Can I Do to Cool My Home More Efficiently?

We don’t think that homeowners should be forced to live in discomfort, just because they are concerned about the cost of cooling their homes effectively. If you think that the only thing you can do to cool your home more efficiently is to opt for a full AC replacement, think again. There are plenty of ways in which you can go about getting a more efficient performance from your existing system, and they won’t put the financial burden of a replacement on your back. Consider the following tips, and be sure to schedule your AC services in Columbia, SC with a member of our staff.

 Seal Your Air Ducts

Sealing leaky ductwork is one of the most effective ways in which to get a more efficient performance from one’s home cooling system. Just remember, though, that this is not the type of job that you can handle on your own. If you have any reason at all to suspect the need for duct sealing in your home, dial our number. We can complete comprehensive air duct testing to determine if this the case. If so, we can go about sealing your ductwork successfully to eliminate efficiency draining leaks.

Upgrade Your Thermostat

Just because your thermostat is so small and so ubiquitous doesn’t mean that you can afford to overlook the vital role that it plays in the cooling of your home. It is, after all, your thermostat that lets you regulate the operation of your system at large. If your thermostat does not have programmability built in, or if you are interested in utilizing smart technology in order to better control your HVAC system for improved efficiency, give us a call. We’ll help you to find the most beneficial thermostat upgrade for your needs.

Use a Zone Control System

With a zone control system, you won’t have to cool your entire home to the same temperature throughout. That means that unoccupied or infrequently used rooms will not be sucking up energy despite the fact that there is really no need to keep them as cool. Contact us if you think that zoning your home may be right for your efficiency needs.
