Here are some additional tips to stay warm this holiday season:
Fill Any Gaps
After investing in a new heating system, the last thing you want to lose is heat. Warm air can seep through recessed light fittings, power sockets, and poorly sealed window frames. Plug the gaps with foam strips, caulk, or expanding foam to seal your home and stay comfortable this winter.
Set Your Thermostat
Many people fail to realize that thermostats self-regulate and keep our homes at a constant temperature. If you have thermostats in individual rooms, set their temperatures, and then leave them to do their job. This is an efficient way to use energy and maintain the temperatures that suit the needs of you and your family.
If your house is well constructed, the floors, walls, roof, and ceilings will most likely contain insulation material. Builders often use expanded polystyrene (EPS) or fiberglass to insulate our homes. However, there are many other types of insulating materials available. You can add extra insulation to your home by layering mineral wool up in your attic. Thick curtain materials will also add extra insulation to your windows. You can also add transparent polythene film to your windows, which will act as a less expensive alternative to double glazing.
Lower the Temperature on Your Water Heater
Water consumes a lot of energy as it heats up. That said, it also takes a long time to cool down again, so it’s an effective medium of energy storage. To save money on energy and still keep nice and warm this winter, turn your water heater down a little. The majority of water heaters have a factory setting of 140°F (60°C) by default. Reducing this by 10°F (5.5°C) can potentially save up to 5% on water-heating costs.

Our AC systems are designed to keep us cool and comfortable all summer long; however, they’re not designed to make disturbing noises. In fact, any unusual sounds coming from your AC unit could be signs of a problem or fault. As the leading provider of emergency air conditioning repair in Norristown and the surrounding areas, we’ve listed the five most common AC noises and their potential causes below.
Screaming or Hissing If you hear a hissing or screaming sound coming from your AC unit, we recommend that you shut it down for safety purposes. Screaming often indicates a severe problem with the AC refrigerant or compressor. If you allow the unit to continue running, it could suffer a potentially severe breakdown. Once the machine has been safely switched off, contact a professional as soon as possible.
Loud Buzzing or Humming Loose components cause extra vibrations that build up and create a loud racket of buzzing or humming. These vibrations may start from the refrigerant line or electrical wiring. However, they may also be an indication of loose screws. Either way, a professional inspection is recommended if these noises persist.
Rattling or Clicking Rattling and clicking when a machine starts up is normal and not necessarily indicative of a problem. Loud clicking is abnormal, especially if the AC unit starts to make these sounds out of the blue. You can try cleaning out any debris from your outdoor unit if this is possible. However, if you can’t identify the problem, call a technician to avoid costly damage.
Gurgling or Dripping Liquid related sounds coming from an AC unit are likely related to the refrigerant lines. Refrigerant and condensation problems can be severe. Sometimes, drain lines and pans are knocked out of place, and fluids can back up. This could lead to freezing, corrosion, or other damage. Call a technician if your AC unit is making any water-related noises.
Banging It’s normal for some equipment to make light banging sounds during AC startup processes. However, if the AC unit makes banging sounds while running continuously, some parts may need tightening or replacing. The blower, fan, compressor, or equipment housing could be off-kilter and may be damaged.
Unfortunately, AC units can break down at the most inconvenient of times, such as in the middle of the summertime. As the leading provider of air conditioning repair service in Harleysville, we want to educate families on how they can prepare for, and survive an AC breakdown. The tips below should provide ample advice to help you keep cool in an emergency.(more…)
AC emergencies can occur at any time, but they usually seem to happen at the most inopportune moment, when we need our cooling system the most. It stands to reason that AC breakdowns are common in the height of the summer season, when everyone has their unit cranking at full blast to find some relief. Maybe you’ve been keeping your AC in tip top shape by calling New Age Air for routine maintenance services, and this won’t happen to you. But what if it does?
Every year, thousands of people switch to ductless AC systems as a way to increase efficiency and save money. As the leading provider of air conditioning repair services in Royersford and the surrounding areas, we’ve listed the advantages of changing to a ductless system below.read more…
