Considering A Ductless System?

Your air conditioning unit is important in terms of functionality. When investing in something that’s responsible for the comfort of your home, you want to make the right choice the first time. In terms of saving money on energy, many people opt for ductless systems. However before purchasing these units for your home, there are a ton of things to consider.

Smaller Homes

In smaller homes, ductless systems are very popular due to their efficiency in these areas. A ductless air conditioner is designed to effectively cool the area in which it is placed, and smaller homes benefit because there are not as many units needed. Additionally, they can be controlled via remotes, bringing cooling capability from anywhere in the house.

Money Saving

Ductless systems undoubtedly decrease your home’s energy bill as well. They’re able to work to cool ‘zones’ of your home, increasing the distribution of cool or warm air into the room. Not only this, but they are typically eligible for tax and utility rebates for the year in which they’re installed.

Due to the ease of installation, it can also save money in that regard, with most installs being completed within the day — other options can take longer periods of time and become invasive to everyday living.

Advantages of Central Cooling

Nobody likes the blistering heat — especially when you can’t escape it. During the summer, we’re undoubtedly doing anything we can in order to stay cool, without emptying our wallets. In your home especially, there are a few options to choose from to keep you cooling, but many people stick with Central Air. In addition to effective cooling, there are many benefits that this type of system possesses.

Quick Temperature Response

Central heating units are very smart. They’re able to adjust to temperature change very quickly. Because of this, your room won’t become too warm before the unit begins working again, wasting energy. This allows you to save money on your energy bill. When paired with a smart thermostat, the savings can be even greater, as the thermostat will learn your habits at home, only using the A/C when necessary.

Aesthetic Appeal

Air conditioning units such as this pose a number of aesthetic benefits as well. In comparison to window and ductless units, they are not visible inside your home, and do not affect any decorative style you may have. Additionally, because of the area, it is very quiet, and generally cannot be heard from inside. This makes the unit beneficial to those who prefer low noise.

If a new A/C unit is something you’re interested in, it might be a good idea to think about a central unit. If so, give Connectionz a call! We’ve been specializing in HVAC install and service for oveer 25 years!

Staying Cool and Keeping Your Pockets Full

This summer, think about the amount of energy you’re using when cooling your home. We’re all for staying comfortable, but it doesn’t necessarily mean digging into your wallet and forking over a ton of money to do so. With respect to your bills,, you can do a ton of different things to bring down the cost while still staying cool. Although it may seem minimal, the overall savings throughout the season can be great!

Ever hear of the damp sheet trick? Dampen a sheet and drape it over an open window. As the wind blows through the sheet, the moisture in the air will naturally cool the room! This is great for days where humidity isn’t a problem, and you don’t feel like using the A/C for the entire home.

Become your own MacGyver. Begin with a bucket of ice water and a fan. By placing the ice in front, you’ll create cool air to cool down any room you’d like to once the fan is on

Keep the lights off, and drapes closed! Almost every light bulb gives off some type of heat. In addition to saving money on electricity costs, it’ll keep you cooler! Likewise with drapes, the sun won’t beam in, warming everything around it. This can actually cause your thermostat to incorrectly read temperatures, causing it to work harder than it has to.

Invest in ductless! Running more efficiently than a traditional unit, ductless A/C effectively cools one room at a time, instead of the entire house. This results in lower costs to stay cool, especially because you don’t have to use energy on empty rooms.

Common Plumbing Issues and Fixes

Your home should be important to you — especially the inner workings that can prove costly, should they break. It’s important as a homeowner to not overlook the little things which can result in big problems. Oftentimes, we neglect the common plumbing issues, forgetting that they can one day turn into a bigger issue. Before this becomes a costly fix, it’s a good idea to have the situation fixed.

Clogs

If you’re dealing with a clog in your pipes, you might want to try and free them as soon as possible. A slow draining pipe can also be a telling sign of a future clog, and these can lead to backups, and bursted pipes. By using a drain snake or a baking soda solution, you can free up the pipes and make sure that there’s nothing left in the pipe. Additionally, you can try running hot water through it in order to break up some of the grime before you attempt to push a snake through.

Whistling Water

If your shower head is singing a song every time you turn it on, it might be a number of things. First, it would be a good idea to check your water valve, and make sure it’s completely turned on. Additionally, it might mean your water pressure is too high, in which you may need a regulator in order to lower it — it can be painful to those who are sensitive. Additionally, it pays to check your shower fixture, as the pieces in between may become worn out, causing sounds.

If you still can’t figure out the issue, you might have a larger issue on your hands, and it’s a good idea to leave it to the pros. For everything plumbing related, give Connectionz a call and we’ll take care of you.
