Summer heat in Northern California can be brutal. Goettl doesn’t mind sharing some of their tips to help beat the heat in an energy efficient way. In the article Goettl Tells All, they share the tips and tricks to staying cool without breaking the bank.
HVAC systems, like any system, require maintenance and upkeep. To keep from stressing and overworking the system, Goettl recommends a homeowner weatherize their home. This type of home maintenance will help to keep the cool air inside where it belongs. Another trick to keeping a unit from over working is to keep it in the shade. The cooler spot will keep the HVAC system from stressing out to produce that cooler air.
The thermostat is a crucial component to keeping the AC unit running smooth. Make sure to keep it away from heat sources, because the heat will “trick” the thermostat. This heat will make it think more cool air is needed than necessary. Also, apply window film or get low emission windows. This type of window will help to keep the sun rays down and cool the room. Make sure to keep the thermostat around 78 degrees. If it is too low or too high, it will begin to waste energy.
With regular maintenance and upkeep, an AC Unit will be energy efficient if used properly. Make sure to keep the house ready for the summer season and use these smart tricks from Goettl to stay cool and save money.
