Are you in the market for a new air conditioner? Before you make that investment, be sure you know exactly what you need, and also understand your options. Ask these five simple questions to get all the essential information.
Keeping your home heated efficiently and at a reasonable cost can sometimes be difficult. Heating systems – and the fuel needed to power them – can be expensive, and the nature of most houses means that they are not the most efficient retainers of energy. However, solutions are available that can help you keep your house consistently warm while still keeping your heating bills manageable. As a leading provider of heating and air conditioning solutions in California, Connolly Heating and Air Conditioning can tell you exactly what you need to know to heat your home affordably and effectively.
Using a Carrier® ductless air conditioning unit is an efficient way to increase your comfort regardless of the challenges you face within your home. This type of unit provides targeted cooling when a central HVAC system isn’t convenient, and can be installed in homes both new and old, even if there’s no existing ductwork. A ductless unit can also be considered if you’re looking to add on to your home or convert an existing space within it.
Summer can be extremely uncomfortable, not necessarily because of the temperature outside, but rather the presence of humidity in the home. The surrounding moisture in your indoor air, in fact, can reach such high levels that even when we perspire, the sweat doesn’t fully evaporate, which is the reason for that unpleasant “sticky” feeling.
Today’s summer conditions allow us to use our air conditioning units for better indoor comfort. The weather patterns we experience at this time of the year create thunderstorms, however, and when this happens it would be best to turn your air conditioning off right away. Fortunately, such storms usually result in a drop in temperature and humidity, allowing you the relief of cool outdoor air to get you by until it’s safe to turn the AC back on.
