10 Low Cost Ways To Keep Your House Cool This Summer

Summer heat is beating down on us in the Houston area. From Galveston to The Woodlands we experience intense humidity combined with blistering heat. Although it can be tempting to crank the AC up, it can be expensive to pay for those large power bills. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program, the average homeowner spends $875 on cooling and heating costs alone.

Before you bring that thermostat down, consider these 10 low cost, or no cost, ways to keep your house cooler this summer.

  1. Pull those curtains closed. Any shade you can add will certainly help block some of the summer heat.
  2. Use your ceiling fan. Using ceiling fans along with lowering your AC 2 degrees can save you 14% on your energy costs.
  3. Bump up the thermostat during the day when no one is home. You could save hundreds by not cooling your home when it’s empty.
  4. Use energy efficient bulbs instead of incandescent bulbs. Modern LED lights can give off virtually no heat compared to incandescent bulbs.
  5. Change your heating and cooling system’s air filter at least every 3 months. The dirtier your air filter, the harder the system has to work.
  6. Plant trees that will provide natural shade around your house.
  7. Install ceiling fans if you do not already have them. The added circulation will help keep the cool air moving.
  8. Ensure that all of your air ducting, vents and registers have a good seal. You could be leaking valuable cool air into the attic, walls or floor of your home.
  9. Contact Proline AC and Heating for an annual service inspection. Our team can catch problems early and help you fine tune the efficiency of your AC system.
  10.  Consider upgrading to high efficiency ENERGY STAR AC units.

ENERGY STAR’s Most Efficient Central Air Conditioners of 2015

The ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2015 designation recognizes the most efficient products among those that qualify for the ENERGY STAR program. These exceptional central air conditioners and air source heat pumps represent the leading edge in energy efficient products this year.

9 Ways To Cool Down Air Conditioning Costs in Magnolia Texas

Hear that? It’s the sound of your air conditioner running and the sound of your bank account drying up. Heating and air conditioning your home take a 43 percent bite from your monthly utility bill, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Here’s how to reduce those costs in summer.

Where to Insulate in a Home

For optimal energy efficiency, your home should be properly insulated from the roof down to its foundation. In addition to insulation, consider moisture and air leakage control in each area of your house. If radon is an issue where you live, you’ll also need to consider radon and radon-resistant construction techniques as you research foundation insulation options. In addition, if you live in an area with termites, you’ll have to consider how termite protection will affect the choice and placement of insulation in your home.

Top 5 Most Common Air Conditioning Problems

One of the most common air conditioning problems is improper operation. If your air conditioner is on, be sure to close your home’s windows and outside doors. For room air conditioners, isolate the room or a group of connected rooms as much as possible from the rest of your home.

Other common problems with existing air conditioners result from faulty installation, poor service procedures, and inadequate maintenance. Improper installation of a central air conditioner can result in leaky ducts and low airflow. Many times, the refrigerant charge (the amount of refrigerant in the system) does not match the manufacturer’s specifications. If proper refrigerant charging is not performed during installation, the performance and efficiency of the unit is impaired. Unqualified service technicians often fail to find refrigerant charging problems or even worsen existing problems by adding refrigerant to a system that is already full. Learn what to ask for when hiring a technician to maintain your air conditioner.

Air conditioner manufacturers generally make rugged, high quality products. If your air conditioner fails, begin by checking any fuses or circuit breakers. Let the unit cool down for about five minutes before resetting any breakers. If a central air conditioner’s compressor stops on a hot day, the high-pressure limit switch may have tripped; reset it by pushing the button, located in the compressor’s access panel.

1. REFRIGERANT LEAKS

If your air conditioner is low on refrigerant, either it was undercharged at installation or it leaks. If it leaks, simply adding refrigerant is not a solution. A trained technician should fix any leak, test the repair, and then charge the system with the correct amount of refrigerant. Remember that the performance and efficiency of your air conditioner is greatest when the refrigerant charge exactly matches the manufacturer’s specification, and is neither undercharged nor overcharged. Refrigerant leaks can also be harmful to the environment.

2. INADEQUATE MAINTENANCE

If you allow filters and air conditioning coils to become dirty, the air conditioner will not work properly, and the compressor or fans are likely to fail prematurely.

3. ELECTRIC CONTROL FAILURE

The compressor and fan controls can wear out, especially when the air conditioner turns on and off frequently, as is common when a system is oversized. Because corrosion of wire and terminals is also a problem in many systems, electrical connections and contacts should be checked during a professional service call.

4. SENSOR PROBLEMS

Room air conditioners feature a thermostat sensor, located behind the control panel, which measures the temperature of air coming into the evaporative coil. If the sensor is knocked out of position, the air conditioner could cycle constantly or behave erratically. The sensor should be near the coil but not touching it; adjust its position by carefully bending the wire that holds it in place.

5. DRAINAGE PROBLEMS

When it’s humid outside, check the condensate drain to make sure it isn’t clogged and is draining properly. Room air conditioners may not drain properly if not mounted level.

Texas Summer Heat Can Be Harmful To Our Senior Citizens

The US Center For Disease Control (CDC) estimates that every year around 300 people in the US die from heat related ailments. In addition thousands of American citizens suffer from dehydration, heat stroke and heat exhaustion. Hot Texas summers put a lot of stress on air conditioning systems and many seniors put off servicing their ac systems due to cost and inconvenience. Senior citizens are more susceptible to the effects of heat as their bodies return to normal slowly and their bodies cooling mechanism is not as efficient as younger people. Hence seniors should be well aware of the health problems related to summer heat and keep their AC systems in good working order to prevent these health problems.

The faster you move the faster your body gets heated up. Hence seniors should take it slow in the summer, especially when it is hot. All outdoor activities should be planned for early mornings when it is cooler. As mush as possible, use the shaded areas under trees or covered porches. If possible air conditioning should be used when it is very hot and fans are not enough. If air conditioning is not available at home consider visiting public places like shopping malls, libraries, etc., that have air conditioning. Seniors also need assistance when its time to move to a new home or apartment, so be sure to use a trusted houston moving company, like Ameritex for this to be handled well.

In places where there are no fans or air conditioning it may be dangerous if temperature rises above 90 °F. Some seniors prefer to keep windows closed for security reasons even when cool breeze is blowing. To ensure that your air conditioner works throughout the heat of our Texas summers, we suggest using Proline’s $59 AC Checkup. This simple and inexpensive AC service check will help you avoid any dangerous and unnecessary AC outages. Houston senior portrait photographer

Dehydration from the body accelerates during the summer months and some medications that have loss of fluid and electrolyte from the body, as side effects, can prove dangerous. It has been found that some diuretics, antibiotics and other medications can slow down the body’s natural capacity to control body temperature. Seniors as well as others should always check with their doctors and pharmacists to find out if the medications prescribed have any such side effects. Those seniors who are on low carbohydrate diets should be careful and take a lot of fluids, as the extra protein in their diets can cause the body to get heated up quickly. As such everyone should also take extra fluids during summer months to compensate for dehydration.

Help our beloved seniors this summer by making sure they are comfortable and well hydrated. If you would like to make sure that your loved ones do not suffer a dangerous AC outage, call Proline AC and Heating at 832-326-2242, and they’ll perform a complete system check.
