Efficient Heating & Cooling
This week we talked Ed Schwartz about efficient heating & cooling for the home. As Summer approaches and homeowners start turning on their cooling systems, energy gets wasted through cracks in sealing and ducts throughout the home. Sealing and insulating ducts can improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system by as much as 20 percent — and sometimes much more.
Also, something you can do RIGHT NOW is check your filter every month, especially during the summer. If the filter looks dirty after a month, change it. Dirty filters slow down air flow and makes your system work harder to keep cool. Clean filters prevent dust and dirt from building up in the system — leading to expensive maintenance or early system failure.
