The Most Comfortable $20 You'll Ever Save

Matthew Stewart - Monday, April 15, 2013

Saving money always feels good, but this kind of money-saving will literally feel good, as it refers to your home’s air conditioning system. And now that temperatures outside are rising, you’re going to likely rely on your A/C quite a bit in the coming months.

Because of this, chances are higher that a component of your A/C system could break, leaving you to sweat it out while waiting for a repairman (and costly repairs). Instead of waiting for a problem to occur, you can thwart those pesky repairs by scheduling an A/C check-up to make sure it’s running smoothly.

Bottom line: Your home’s comfort system needs to be professionally maintained in order to last a long time and save you money on utility bills and unwanted repairs.

Schedule your A/C check-up online today to beat the heat and live comfortably.

Why Indoor Air Quality is Important

Matthew Stewart - Saturday, March 16, 2013

Spring is upon us, and with that often comes discomfort from allergies and air pollutants. You want to make sure that the quality of air inside your home is the best it can be. Believe it or not, air pollution indoors can often be higher than outdoors.

And don’t be fooled — new homes are at risk too. Air quality has deteriorated over the past few decades, mostly because of the way our homes are built. Air can’t escape homes easily, so pollutants and allergens get trapped inside. An Air Filtration System can help with this and reduce the amount of pollution inside your home.

Excessive moisture and humidity may also be a cause for concern due to mold and fungus that can develop over time. Spring allergies in particular can be set off by mold, which can harm your respiratory system. Mold can also set off an asthmatic attack in those afflicted with asthma.

One way to battle this is to let 72 Degrees conduct an air duct cleaning to get rid of contaminants that you and your family may be breathing and keep your home’s air safe and clean. From dust and pollen to mold and other debris, air ducts can be filled with nasty objects that contaminate your air. In addition, we will seal air ducts to prevent further contaminants from entering the system again.

Benefits of a Heat Pump

Matthew Stewart - Friday, February 22, 2013

When you read the words, “heat pump,” you probably imagine something made for heating up your house during the cold winter season. But, a heat pump is not just for winter. It’s for the entire year.

During the winter, a heat pump brings heat from the air and helps it flow through your air ducts, warming your house. During the summer, it takes the heat from inside your house and releases it outside, cooling your home. So in effect, a heat pump helps airflow all the time and makes your home energy efficient. It functions much in the same way that an air conditioner does.

However, a benefit of using a heat pump is that you don’t have to install separate heating and cooling systems; heat pumps roll that into one. They also transfer heat instead of burning fuel to create it, saving energy.

In addition, heat pumps dehumidify indoor air as it cools and produce smaller temperature swings, so you’re not hot one minute and cold the next.

And the fact that they can be used year-round makes them cost effective and can lower your heating and cooling costs.

Contact us to see if a heat pump is right for your home.
