Energy bills can be at their highest during the summer months. To keep your system operating at its highest efficiency, try following these tips!

1) Schedule an Air Conditioner Tune-up
Have your system inspected and cleaned once a year. This will keep your system running at its highest efficiency and prevent costly repairs.

2) Change your Air Filter
It is recommended that you replace your air filter once a month. Doing this keeps the airflow moving properly throughout your system, keeping your home cooler. A dirty filter can block airflow and cause costly repairs.

3) Weatherproof Your Home to Avoid Air Loss
While your system is working hard to keep your home cool, check the windows and doorframes for gaps that could cause air to escape from your home. You can use caulk to fill the cracks or purchase weatherproofing strips to seal the gaps.

4) Upgrade to a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat enables you to set a schedule which can help keep your bills lower. You can set your thermostat to increase the temperature while you’re sleeping or at work.

5) Reverse Your Ceiling Fans
Switch the direction of your ceiling fans so that they run counter-clockwise. This will force the cool indoor air down, helping the room to stay cooler.

If your system is older, it may be time to get a new one. It is recommended to replace systems that are over 10 years old in order to improve energy efficiency. Want to schedule a free estimate? Call us today at 610-494-1114.

    Thanks for making me realize that it is time to replace our old system with a new one. We’ve been experiencing a lot of problems with our heating system these days and its old age might be the reason why. It might be better to consult experts in heating services and see if a replacement is the best solution for this.

  4. Well-written article. Also, quick tip, invest in energy efficient appliances. 🙂

  5. You said well. I think I learn something more challenging on different blogs every day. All components of your HVAC system—from filters to the electric panel, and everything in between—need to be free of debris. In addition to causing your system to work inefficiently, things like dirty air filters will pump dust and allergens into your home, reducing the air quality and flow and potentially clogging the system.Thanks for sharing.


  6. It’s great that you talked about how it’s important to check your air conditioner at least once a year. Recently, I tried to turn on my cooling system, but it started to make weird noises, so I turned it off. I’m not sure what could be wrong with it. After reading your piece, I believe it’d be better to look for a professional to check it out. Thanks for the tips about how to prepare your home for the hot weather.

    Thanks for the info that an air conditioner should be inspected and cleaned once a year. I plan on getting air conditioning for my home this summer. In order to keep my air conditioning unit running properly after I get it installed, I’ll make sure to have it professionally inspected once a year.

    I like what you said about getting a programmable thermostat to save money. My AC is broken and won’t turn off. I’ll have to hire a contractor to install a smart thermostat.

    Thanks for the info about energy efficiency. My friend is concerned about his home’s heating. I’ll tell him to look for a professional that can help install a new heating system.
