Boost Your Heating Efficiency

 

Okay, trust us. We know that our summer seasons are a lot more intense than the cold of the winter nights in this part of the country.  Just because we are not waking up to ice on the sidewalks and subzero temperatures, however, does not mean that your heater is really any less important than your air conditioner. Yes, it may help you get through the hottest days of the year, but knowing that your AC is dependable doesn’t do much for you on a chilly night, does it?

Even if you are not running your heater as much as you do your air conditioner, it needs to work. And you know what else? We think that it needs to work efficiently. A relatively small amount of time on the playing field does not mean that your heater should get away with an inefficient heating output. Here are a few tips that can help you to enjoy more efficient heating in Phoenix, AZ.

Seal Up Your Air Leaks

Now, there are a lot of very cold areas where people wrap their windows with plastic sheeting in the winter. While you are not likely going to be doing that in your home, you should seriously consider hiring a contractor to seal up any air leaks in your home. Some amount of natural ventilation is obviously very necessary, but air leaks wind up costing you money as they waste energy.

In the winter, when you’re heating your home, that heat is going to transfer through leaky spots into the cooler air outside. While we may not run our heaters all that much, you should keep in mind that those same leaks will also negatively affect you in the summer. They’ll let hot air in, so sealing up those leaks is actually going to pay off all year. Contact us to schedule a blower door test to get the ball rolling.

Improve Insulation

Again, this is more of an efficiency-in-general solution, but you need to make sure that your home has insulation in all the right places, and that it is the right insulation for that particular type of place. We offer full insulation services, and you should take advantage of them if you don’t want to overpay to heat and cool your home.

Insulation is there to prevent the unwanted transfer of heat into or out of your home. Again, the fact that your heater is not running most days of the year doesn’t mean that you should be paying to generate heat that is just going to waste on the days that it is running.

Schedule a Heating Tune-Up

Are you serious about getting the very best, most efficient performance possible from your home heating system? Then you should schedule a professional heating tune-up today.  The last thing that you want is for your heater to come up short, just because you skipped a few maintenance sessions.

Simple tasks like changing your air filter can make a difference, but thorough maintenance completed by a skilled professional is going to be necessary if you really want to keep your system running efficiently and reliably. Schedule service with the pros here at Goettl Air Conditioning Phoenix.

G-O-E-T-T-L it’ll keep you cool but it’s hard to spell.

    I have been with Goettl Air in Tucson for years and have always had complete confidence in their maintenance service.
