Efficiency and Savings
Heating and cooling your home requires a lot of energy, which costs money. Heaters and air conditioners usually compose 48% of your utility bill. Professional home heating repair and home air conditioning repair can help prevent that percentage from becoming even greater.
A faulty heat strip or disconnected duct are common problems that could easily quadruple your electricity bill. A faulty heat strip causes both hot and cold to work at the same time, cancelling each other out, or requiring an air conditioning unit to work harder to reach the desired temperature. A disconnected duct, on the other hand, releases air releases hot or cold air before it gets were its supposed to go.
To avoid paying more for electricity than what is necessary, utility bills should be monitored regularly so that upward trends can be analyzed.
Finally, residential heating repair and residential air conditioning repair services can also help ensure a desirable level of moisture and air quality in every room of your home.
Cooking, doing the laundry, and taking a hot shower are all examples of necessary day-to-day activities that add moisture to the air. Humidity can also come from leaking pipes, damp ground conditions, and water retention in your house or building. Even human breathing adds moisture to the air.
Since many pollutants are water soluble, moisture allows particles to spread throughout your home. Dampness also facilitates the growth of fungi and bacteria, and creates an ideal living condition for pests such as dust mites. These, in turn, release more dust into the air.
On the other hand, not enough moisture can lead to dryness of the eyes, skin, nose, and throat, as well as irritation and itchiness.
Heating and air conditioning systems do not only serve to achieve the desired room temperature, but they also affect humidity levels. Keeping residential air conditioning in good working condition can help ensure that humidity is kept at acceptable levels.
