You may have made it through another summer with your home staying cool, but it may have been costly. This may be due to the cost of emergency repairs or an outdated system that is inefficient. Therefore, the end of summer is a great time to start thinking about the different repairs and replacement options to update your system and make it more reliable and energy-efficient for next summer. The following tips will help you get ready for next summer with the right repairs and improvements after you turn off the AC this year:
Upgrading Damaged Ductwork Before the Cold Winter Weather Arrives
Another problem that you may have is the ducts getting damaged. If you have an old ductwork system, it may also have an inefficient design. Talk to the AC repair contractor about options to make your AC ducts more efficient with modern materials and an updated design that helps to reduce energy loss and make your home more efficient.
Problems With Thermostats and Updating Your Home With Zoned Design and Modern Controls
The old analog or even digital thermostats can have problems that cause them to need to be replaced. Today, you have many options for programmable and smart thermostats that help reduce energy waste and make your AC more efficient. In addition to digital controls, there are also options for zoned AC designs that will allow you to control different spaces in your home and use your HVAC system more efficiently.
Energy-Efficient Motors and Compressors to Update Your AC With an Efficient Repair
Another improvement that you may want to consider is the installation of energy-efficient motors for your AC. This can be motors that power the blower or compressor. If you are doing repairs to the compressor, talk to the AC repair technicians about options to replace the compressor with more efficient components to make your air conditioning more energy-efficient.
Options for Energy-Efficient AC Replacements to Do When Summer Ends and the Weather Cools
The options for replacing your AC may be better than doing repairs and keeping an outdated AC unit. Today, there are many options for energy-efficient AC systems, which can reduce your energy costs when cooling your home during the hot summer months. You may also want to consider options for heat pump AC systems, which can also provide efficient heating for your home when the cold weather arrives.
