A/C Operating Tips That Balance Comfort With Energy Savings

Summertime in Michigan means your air conditioning is running. The bad news is that every degree you turn the thermostat down makes your energy bill go up. The good news is that there are ways to stay comfortable while saving money. Here are some A/C operating tips:


Changed Your Air Filter? Do It Now — And Benefit 5 Ways

All heating and cooling equipment should have an air filter installed to capture airborne pollutants as air circulates through the system to be heated or cooled. Five primary benefits await you if you diligently change your filter every 30 to 90 days.


Scheduled Air Conditioner Maintenance Yet? It’s Not Too Late To Cash In On Its Benefits

Before the temperatures really start soaring, get your air conditioning system in high gear with professional service, as well as some simple do-it-yourself TLC.


With A Ductless Mini Split, You Can Heat Or Cool Almost Any Space

Home-improvement projects — such as add-ons or retrofitting unused space to living space — can be pleasing and exciting, and these projects often increase the value of your home. However, issues often arise that dampen the fun. One of those issues may be choosing the best method to heat and cool the new space. If you’re facing a similar decision, consider the benefits of a ductless mini split as a top solution.


Programmable Thermostats: How The Next Generation Boosts Control Over Comfort, Savings

  One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to reduce your home heating and cooling bills is by installing a programmable thermostat. These temperature regulators allow you to set specified temperatures for different times of the day and different days of the week. This means the system can be set to heat or cool the home only when it is occupied.


How To Select A Standby Generator To Power Your Home

When the power goes out, it does more than just leave you in the dark. It can leave you in the cold (or heat) with no HVAC equipment running to keep you comfortable. It can leave you hungry, with no microwave or stove to cook with and no refrigeration to keep your food from spoiling. It can even leave you in danger, with no security system and no TV or computer to relay storm warnings. 


5 Steps To Better Energy Savings

Saving money on your energy bill is a high priority for most homeowners. There are a number of ways that you can gain energy savings and still keep your home environment comfortable, including these five:


Programmable Thermostat: Expert Help To Choose The Best One

All programmable thermostats help you save energy by customizing your home-comfort plan, and allow you to remove “check the thermostat” from your daily to-do list. The differences between the variety of programmable thermostats are the programming options, and the available “smart” features, such as Wi-Fi-linkable that gives you complete system management from your smartphone, your laptop or any place where you access the Internet.


Duct Returns: How Do Yours Rate For Airflow?

Duct returns in your home do just what the term implies: return air to the HVAC system to be heated or cooled, then delivered back to the rooms through supply ducts. Only with fully functioning, balanced duct returns can your HVAC system supply heated or cooled air efficiently.


Buying HVAC Equipment? Don’t Risk Your Investment With An Online Deal — Get Expert Help Instead

When you’re buying HVAC equipment, one of the first places you may start is online, where information is quick and easy to access. However, there’s a lot to learn about heating and air conditioning before you select the right system for your home. The best place to start is with an HVAC contractor, who can explain the basics and subtleties of the systems you depend on for interior comfort.
