As we welcome in 2016, many of us in the Mesa, AZ area are making new year’s resolutions, such as promising to exercise more or indulge in harmful vices less. You would be well served to make a few additional resolutions regarding your heating and air conditioning system. They could serve you quite well in the coming year by improving your system’s overall efficiency and maybe putting a few dollars back in your pocket along the way.
Schedule an Energy Audit
An energy audit performed on your house is a great way to spot those little things that leech energy out of it and force you to pay more to get it properly heated and cooled. They can include big things like insufficient insulation or little things like cracks under the front door. Whatever they are, a trained professional can spot them and develop a plan to counter them that works within your budget.
Plan Maintenance Sessions
A maintenance session isn’t the same as a repair session, which treats specific issues. Instead, a maintenance session is designed to prevent repairs in the future by addressing the countless tiny things that contribute to them. Dusty components are cleaned, loose bolts are tightened, refrigerant in your air conditioner is recharged, and the entire system is given a once-over to look for any burgeoning problems. Not only does it help you halt potential trouble, but your entire system will function more efficiently, shaving money off of your monthly bills.
Consider an Upgrade
There’s no need to replace a system that’s doing just fine, but you can help it do better with a less extensive upgrade. This can include a zone control system, a UV air purifier, a humidifier or even just a new thermostat complete with some extra bells and whistles.
From all of us at John’s Refrigeration, Happy New Year and best wishes for 2016!
