The weather up to this point has been a bit unpredictable, but summer is on your doorstep. High temperatures and humid days are about to become an everyday occurrence. If you’re already feeling hot, sticky, and generally uncomfortable at home, it’s time to act before the summer becomes unbearable.
Home Upgrades for Improved Comfort & Energy Efficiency
Poor air conditioning is not the only potential problem that contributes to comfort issues. Your New Jersey home may be too hot because it’s not properly weatherized. Your air conditioner is supposed to cool your home and not the outside.
Appropriate insulation and air sealing are essential to staying comfortable year-round. A tightly air-sealed and well-insulated home will keep outdoor heat out and cool air in during the summer. In the winter, warm air will stay inside while keeping the freezing temperatures out. If you’ve noticed temperature differences between rooms or the levels in your home, you should first address the problem with proper air sealing and insulation.
Did You Remember to Have Your Air Conditioner Serviced?
Although there can be several reasons why you’re too hot at home, if you didn’t have your air conditioner serviced before turning it on this year, you’re setting yourself and your family up for a long and hot summer. Making sure your air conditioning system is maintained seasonally is important to ensure comfort throughout the cooling season. Additional benefits of regular maintenance include:
- Avoidance of unexpected breakdowns and the need for costly repairs
- Decreased rise in your monthly energy bills
- Better indoor air quality for a healthier home
Do You Need a New, Energy Efficient AC?
Maybe you did remember to have your air conditioner serviced, or maybe you don’t even recall the last time a professional touched your HVAC system, and you’re still uncomfortable. In these scenarios, it may be time to install a new system. New, high-performance air conditioners with SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings that are off the charts can keep you comfortable while keeping your bills low.
