With a new year comes a new time to look at the way you live life and set resolutions if you do that. It is also a great time to look at the expenses you pay for utilities; if you can save money by implementing a few simple changes, that’s a great way to kick off 2021.
What can you do to reduce the cost of utility bills this year when running your HVAC? There are a myriad of things, some of which involve upgrades and updates to your HVAC unit while others are no- to low-cost.
Making the change to a geothermal heating and cooling system is one of the best ways to save on utilities. This is made even easier by the recently announced extension of credits for the installation of geothermal heating units.
The installation of an air conditioning unit in a commercial building is not for the average DIYer. These units are expensive and you certainly don’t want to do anything that could void a warranty or impact the lifespan and efficiency of the unit. We have 3 reasons to have the commercial HVAC serviced, but there are many more!
If you’re having an air conditioning unit installed in a commercial space you own or manage, you will also want to sign up for an annual (or twice annual) HVAC inspection to keep the unit’s warranty valid, keep it operating at its peak and save money on its operation.
Here are three things to think about when hiring and planning for an HVAC installation and ongoing maintenance.
Bbbrrrr. It’s cold outside, but is it time to turn on the heat? Some people will wear sweaters and put off turning on the heat as long as possible. Others will turn on the heat at the first sign of temperatures below seventy degrees! The geothermal air conditioning experts from Symbiont Air Conditioning regularly talk with their customers about the “perfect” time to turn on the heater for the season.
Hint: There is no perfect time! Just as when you turn on the air conditioning for the first time each year, turning on the heat is personal as well. Although there are some indicators that we offer to help you know when to make the switch from AC to heat.
Who wants a good night’s sleep? That may seem like a trick question, but it isn’t. A good night’s sleep will make the next day better because you’ll feel better and be more revitalized. If you ever wondered how air conditioning can help you sleep better, we have the answers.
Why is your home so dusty? That certainly isn’t something the air conditioning professionals from Symbiont Air Conditioning in Englewood, Florida would point out BUT they do know that dirty air conditioner air filters can lead to a thin layer of dust coating your furniture and floors.
The air filter in an HVAC unit is essential to the air quality of your home. You can certainly check the cleanliness — or dirtiness — of the filters in your air conditioner. If they are dirty you will want to clean them and replace them with new, clean ones. When we pay a service visit for your HVAC unit, checking and cleaning or replacing the filters is one of the many steps we take to assure the unit is working as effectively and efficiently as it should.
What else should you know about air filters and dust? The MERV rating, for sure. This may not be a term you’re familiar with but it is the rating of the impact your air conditioning filter will have on the air you breathe.
How clean is the air you’re breathing? Clean indoor air is safer indoor air and that is more important than ever during this time of coronavirus and the quarantine the country is dealing with.
It’s best to not assume the air in your home is safe. You also can’t know how safe and clean the air you’re breathing at work or in a shopping center or grocery store is. The air in our homes may contain unhealthy particles, bacteria and pollutants.
Our geothermal and air conditioning professionals understand that our customers — commercial and private homeowners — want to improve the air they breathe and we have put together a short checklist of ways to help ensure you’re breathing the cleanest air possible.
You can clean the air you breathe by investing in an electronic air cleaner. These devices are easy-to-use and maintain, reliable and effective. An electronic air cleaner may also save you money on HVAC system maintenance and repair because they pull pollutants from the air and that might keep the air filter cleaner, longer.
