Nothing makes the heat of a hot summer day more enjoyable than your air conditioning system. Here in New Jersey, we understand that summer time means there are going to be a lot of hot days on the horizon, so we have some tips on how to stay cool this summer courtesy of our customer service department.
Ways To Stay Cool
While a central air system is a huge help when it’s hot and muggy, it isn’t the only way to keep your home nice and cool in the summer. If you are looking to maximize your ability to keep the house cool, here are some additional things you might want to consider. Your friends at Team Electric Plumbing & Air want you to have the information you need to begin making decisions. Here are some cost efficient, environmentally-friendly air conditioning options.
Ductless Cooling Systems: These systems are installed throughout your home and allow you to create zones of cooling. For example, if you are sleeping, why spend money to cool the rest of your home? Each room can have a thermostat. Ductless systems use less energy and many have the energy star rating. Since you will be using less electricity, you will be reducing your carbon footprint. In addition, ductless cooling systems use a refrigerant that has zero ozone depletion potential. Going green is easy with ductless cooling.
Ceiling Fans: If you have ceiling fans you can reduce the amount of time your air conditioner needs to run by helping to circulate the air throughout your home. The increased air movement will make your home feel cooler without necessarily changing the indoor air temperature. By using your ceiling fans, you can push back the day you begin using your central air conditioner by a few weeks, or set your thermostat temp one or two degrees higher while staying comfortable.
Programmable Thermostats: By installing a programmable digital thermostat to your air conditioning system, your energy costs will reduce, and you’ll be able to fine tune your home temperature to your environment. Being able to set what time you want your system to turn on and off will reduce overuse and waking up to a hot house. This program also allows you to set your heating to come on in the winter to avoid those cold mornings.
