Tips From Charlotte Air Conditioning Repair Experts Carolina Heating and Air Conditioning

26 Mar , 2016  

Long-time member Keith Hudson from Carolina Heating and Air Conditioning recently provided the CRESN members with an excellent presentation with tips on how to keep you home (and yourself) cool throughout the summer.

Keep Cool with These Air Conditioning Tips

  • Don’t allow the interior of your home to become dangerously hot since the air conditioner cannot cool it down within a reasonable amount of time. Air conditioners are designed for about a 20° change in temperature, so 100° air would only be cooled to about 80°.
  • One of the most simple air conditioner tips is to change your air conditioner filter at least four times a year to ensure that your family is breathing cleaner air and your HVAC system is not being overworked, thus potentially saving energy and money.
  • Run your ceiling fans to stay cooler in the summertime. Check your fans to ensure they are going in the correct direction. In the summer, your fan should be set on “forward,” which means the blades are rotating counter-clockwise. There is a switch on the base where you can control this. By moving your fan setting to the forward position, you will receive a nice downward breeze keeping you cool.
  • It is fairly common for an air conditioner to ice up. The air conditioner drain line can also freeze, back up and cause a leak, which is often confused for a plumbing leak. When this happens, immediately turn off your compressor by switching your thermostat over to fan. As the ice starts to melt, make sure you have proper drainage and call a professional. From dirty coils to poorly designed ductwork, there are many things that can restrict airflow. A professional can check them all and get to the root of the problem.
  • Keep heat out of your home by closing blinds, shades and draperies that cover windows facing the sun. Close coverings on east-facing windows in the morning and west-facing windows in the afternoon. Also, installing shades or blinds that are white reflects heat away from the house. This will keep you cooler and save energy.
  • Keep your outdoor air conditioning unit cooler by planting trees or shrubs that provide shade but still allow air to flow around unit. By properly shading the area, your system can perform up to 10% more efficiently. Also, be sure the landscaping isn’t too close to the unit, so a technician can service it easily when necessary.
  • The best defense against air conditioner problems is to have a service agreement in place and make sure your system is maintained year-round, especially right before the heavy heat of summer sets in. This is the time of year when your air conditioning system works its hardest. Regular tune-ups reduce your risk of experiencing common malfunctions and will help you stay cool when everyone else is sweating the heat. Contact ARS®/Rescue Rooter® for a complete air conditioner tune-up.
  • Don’t let heat build up in your home. Appliances, electronic devices and lighting are all common sources of internal heat gain. To combat this excess heat, avoid putting lamps or televisions near your air conditioner’s thermostat. These heat-exuding appliances cause the air conditioner to think the house is warmer than it really is, resulting in the system running longer than necessary and wasting energy.

Looking for a carpet cleaner in Charlotte? Cleaner Carpet Concepts!

19 Mar , 2016  

Cornelius Street, owner, and operator of Charlotte’s Cleaner Carpet Concepts, recently provided a Q&A session with the CRESN membership about the type of carpet and tile cleaning services his company provides.

The benefits of Green (non-toxic) carpet cleaning

In recent years, people have come to realize that our planet is dying because of the chemicals we use. To use eco-friendly or green cleaning methods is morally responsible. The cleansers are bio-degradable so they impose minimal impact on the animals and environment around us. In addition to minimizing harm to the animals, the Green cleaners are also safer for ourselves since they do not depend on harsh chemicals.
