Why choose Hoosier Heating and Cooling?
Tips to Keep Cool:
- Replace your filters every 30 days. If you have a permanent filter, clean it with a mild detergent, per manufacturer's recommendations.
- Air conditioning manufacturers recommend having the equipment tuned-up regularly. These tune-ups pay for themselves when the technicians adjust the systems for peak performance. Maintenance is a great way for homeowners to have the piece of mind that their equipment has been taken care of and should be working at the efficiency levels they originally paid for.
- Insulate ducts, to ensure that the conditioned air is getting to the rooms in your house and not being lost in the crawl, walls, or attic.
- Keep your AC Condenser clean and clear. Prune back shrubs and remove debris, like grass and leaves, that may block air flow to and from your condenser.
- On hot summer days, the temperature in your attic can reach 150 degrees. Improving the ventilation in your attic will lower the temperature of the entire house and make your air conditioner's job a lot easier. Installing an attic fan that is controlled by a thermostat to exhaust the hot air can greatly improve the comfort of your home.
- Depending on the size of your home, you can save up to 3% on your cooling costs for every degree you raise your thermostat in the summer. Raising the thermostat from 73 to 78 degrees can mean savings of up to 15% in cooling costs.
- Fans can make your air conditioner's job easier while saving you money. Pedestal and ceiling fans improve the air circulation in your home, allowing you to raise the temperature at the thermostat. In moderate heat, fans can sometimes completely replace air conditioners. Ceiling fans use only about one tenth the electricity of a typical home air conditioner, and therefore cost only one-tenth as much to operate.
- To stay most comfortable during the hottest hours of the day, do your cooking, laundry and bathing in the early morning or late evenings. These activities all increase the level of humidity in your home, making it less comfortable and forcing the air conditioner to work even harder. If other heat generating appliances, such as irons, ovens and blow dryers are used only in the early morning or late evening, your home will stay cooler.
