Summer Comfort Tips for Efficient HVAC Systems

With the sweltering summer heat just around the corner, it’s important to ensure your home’s cooling system is in top condition. At Maglish Plumbing, Heating, & Electric, we understand the importance of a well-functioning HVAC system for maintaining a comfortable living environment. In this regional advice article, we’ll share some valuable tips to help you prepare for the warm months ahead.

Schedule Annual Maintenance

Regular maintenance is crucial for the efficient operation of your HVAC system. We recommend scheduling an annual tune-up with our experienced technicians. During this service, we’ll:

  • Clean and inspect the condenser coils
  • Check refrigerant levels and recharge if necessary
  • Lubricate moving parts
  • Inspect and clean the air filters
  • Test the thermostat for accuracy

Proper maintenance not only ensures optimal performance but can also extend the lifespan of your HVAC system.

Consider Upgrading to a High-Efficiency System

If your current HVAC system is old or inefficient, it may be time to consider an upgrade. Modern high-efficiency systems can significantly reduce energy consumption and lower your monthly utility bills. Our team at Maglish Plumbing, Heating, & Electric can help you select the right system for your home and budget.

Utilize Programmable Thermostats

Programmable thermostats are a simple and effective way to maximize energy efficiency. By setting the temperature higher when you’re away from home or sleeping, you can reduce your cooling costs without sacrificing comfort. Our technicians can help you program your thermostat to suit your schedule and preferences.

Improve Insulation and Seal Air Leaks

Proper insulation and air sealing can play a significant role in reducing the workload on your HVAC system. Ensure that your attic, walls, and crawlspaces are adequately insulated, and seal any air leaks around windows, doors, and other openings. This will help keep the cool air inside and the hot air outside, resulting in a more comfortable and energy-efficient home.
