While we at McDowell Heating & Air are always happy to provide you with the best furnace and air conditioning repair services possible, we also want to let you know of a few ways to keep the wear and tear on your air conditioning and furnace to a minimum.
Keeping your air conditioning unit lower at night allows your family to stay cool at night and also allows your air conditioning unit to get a break from running on high all day when it's the hottest during the summer. If your air conditioning unit has one, put it on sleep mode when you are about to go to bed.
Another thing to consider when running your air conditioning throughout the summer months not only saves you money, but it also adds time to your air conditioning unit's life! Make sure the air ducts where your air conditioning unit runs through your home are properly insulated. Checking your ducts for proper insulation will keep the air coming in as cool as possible for your air conditioning unit. This will keep you from running your AC and only getting half cool air throughout your home, thus saving you money!
