Hottest Month Of The Year!

Typically, August is the warmest month of the year.  This year will probably be no exception.  If you are on a maintenance plan then you are already a step ahead and good for you.  If not, then cross your fingers your a/c doesn't go out!  Here are just a few things you can do around the house to make sure you get the most from your a/c this summer:
  • change your air filter(s) every 30 to 90 days.  Depending on how quickly your filter(s) get dirty
  • keep shades, blinds, windows closed to keep out sunlight as much as possible during the day when you aren't home
  • have a Preventative Maintenance Plan with a licensed, fully certified hvac company like Environmental Heating & Air
  • keep all bushes, grass, and other debris clear from around your a/c unit outside.  A 2 foot minimum clearance is best
  • take a quick look at your ductwork.  If it looks old and/or appears to be falling apart, have a professional take a look at it.  You would be AMAZED how much efficiency is lost because of loose and/or deteriorated ductwork
These are some of the major points that you at home can take care of in just a short amount of time.  If taken care of, these things can help ensure you stay cool in the hottest of weather and achieve the longest life possible from your a/c and heating system without getting HUGE electric bills.  Prices are also great right now on replacement A/C systems.  To inquire about getting a price on a new system or you would like to sign up for Environmental's Preventative Maintenance Plan, just give us a call at the number below or visit our website, thanks for reading and stay cool folks!

  2. What is a split air system unit? If I remember from another blog, it is suppose to cool down a room. I would need that since I like having my room cooler than the rest of the house. http://www.academymechanical.com
