My cooling bill is out of control!

Posted on: July 12th, 2016 by tcg_admin No Comments

Cooling costs can really burn you in the summer.

Here are some tips to help keep your bill as low as the temperature inside!   

As the summer wears on, temperatures continue to rise, especially in the south! Many people are left with the tough choice of picking which one is more comfortable: the state of your bank account, or the temperature inside your home/business. Thankfully, there are steps you can take to reduce cooling costs in the summer. Check out this list of helpful tips!

1. Leave the sun outside

Everyone enjoys the extra hours of sunlight in the summer, but not when the sun’s rays are raising your cooling bill. Keep the sun outside where it belongs by covering your windows with blinds or curtains. This simple trick can help you save big time when cooling your home!

2. Cool down your cooking

Your oven puts off lots of heat! This can really heat up the place, especially in a small space. Opt for meals prepared in a crockpot or microwave in the summer. Try grilling out or even better, try some refreshingly cool and healthy summer salad options!

3. Switch on a fan

Air circulation is key to maintaining low temperatures inside your home or business. Using a ceiling fan in conjunction with your air conditioner can help accomplish this, while also lowering your cooling costs! Using a ceiling fan can even allow you to raise the temperature on your thermostat a couple of degrees without leaving you uncomfortably warm.

4. Make sure your AC Unit is well maintained

What’s the Point of Regular HVAC Maintenance?

Posted on: March 21st, 2016 by tcg_admin 4 Comments

My system is running well, can I skip maintenance?

Although you can technically skip maintenance, it is not advisable! Imagine doing the same with your car. If you never have the oil changed or a tune-up until the check-engine light comes on, you can’t expect it to last more than a few of years. With that in mind, there is one very practical reason to schedule maintenance and that is saving money! There are two ways scheduling yearly maintenance will save you money: prevention and energy efficiency.

  1. Prevention:

    Regular check ups give your technician more chances to detect small problems and correct them, before they become major issues. Repairing a small refrigerant leak may not be a huge charge, but buying a new compressor when low refrigerant levels burn your current one out can cost a significant amount of money.

  2. Energy Efficiency:

    Maintenance service will ensure that your HVAC system is running at maximum efficiency by cleaning out your system and making sure that everything is in optimal condition. When your HVAC is running well, it uses less energy to cool and heat your house. Lower energy usage means lower bills and less environmental impact.

So what are some of the things we will do in a routine maintenance visit?
