Did you get your air conditioner serviced before summer? If you have a system that runs all day long AND all night long, you may need to get it serviced. These systems should be cleaned & serviced “at least” annually. What happens when you don’t? They don’t work efficiently. They cost you MORE money to cool your home because they use more energy. Did you know that the number 1 energy hog in your home is the AC & Furnace? Get it serviced annually. Next up is the attic space in your home. As the hot air in the attic cools down in the evening, it finds ways into your living space. Small openings and cracks in the ceiling and walls allow it to migrate. Why? Because as hot air cools, it becomes heavy and drops. As the warm penetrates your living space, the rooms heat up and the AC kicks back on. Adding insulation to the attic is not just for the winter months, it can save you thousands in the summer too. Find and seal up the cracks and crevices in the walls and ceiling of your home, its simple to do with a bit of caulk or insulation. But, be careful if you are sealing around a light. Those electric wires can really get your attention! Dont touch them.
That’s all for now.
