Air conditioning is important to have during the summer months. Us folks in Minneapolis have already had a few days where the air conditioning was needed to stay comfortable. If you haven’t gotten a tune-up for your air conditioner this year already, now is a good time to do so. It’s also a great time to find ways to make your life easier and your A/C more efficient with new tools for your HVAC units.


WiFi Thermostat

Technology has significantly made our lives easier in almost every aspect of our lives. Now, we have thermostats that can connect to your WiFi to make it easier to update your HVAC settings from your phone or other devices. It also automatically adjusts your thermostat to your settings to cool your home when you’re home or stay on standby when you are away. This reduces the use of energy to adjust to keep you comfortable without wasting it. Using the WiFi in your home, it can also analyze the temperature patterns and gives you options to save energy costs. It’s a great way to find how to keep yourself comfortable while saving you the most money.

Re-insulate your ductwork

Spaces in your ductwork let out the cool air going into your home and the hot air leaving your home. It takes more energy to keep moving cool air from your home if the air keeps escaping through worn down insulation. This is what it means to have low efficiency with your HVAC appliances. If your insulation is getting old, getting it re-insulated could be the solution to making your HVAC more efficient.


Clean your outdoor unit

Over the winter, leaves, dead grass, and garbage can surround the outdoor unit of your air conditioner. The spring may have brought roots and other plants to block the airflow as well. If you haven’t cleaned it already, there is a good chance that the outdoor unit is clogged and restricting the amount of air going in and out of your home. The efficiency of your air conditioner will be much better if it is cleaned to un-restrict the airflow.

Seal your windows

Windows and doors are notorious for wearing down and leaving spaces for air to escape and lower your air conditioner’s efficiency. Sealing the doors and windows that you don’t use can prevent the cool air from escaping and putting less stress on your air conditioner. With less stress on your HVAC system, it doesn’t just increase your air conditioner’s efficiency; it also helps it last longer.

Any improvement to your HVAC systems can help you save money. Right now, Twin City Heating, Air and Electric wants to help you save money in any way you can during this changing economy. If you would like to learn more about our WiFi thermostats, give us a call.
