Is your air conditioner freezing up? It can be surprising to see a chunk of ice sitting on your outdoor AC system, especially in the middle of summer. But sometimes you can’t even see the ice on the exterior of the unit.

Is it possible to keep your house cool this summer without paying an arm and a leg to your utility company?
Absolutely it is. But it takes a little work on your part.
There’s nothing worse than feeling like you’re living in a pressure cooker, so we tend to crank up the AC when the weather gets hot outside. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, American households can expect to spend $422, or $141 per month, on electricity bills in June-August. In some parts of the country where summers get extremely hot, it’s common to see utility bills easily over a few hundred dollars per month.
So how can you keep your AC bill down this summer? There are some ways to save money on air conditioning, specifically helping your AC unit run more efficiently, which will help you save some summer cash. Follow these helpful ways to reduce your AC costs during the summer heat.
Finishing your basement is a great way to expand your living space. Maybe you’re planning that perfect spot to watch the big game or making a play space for the kids. No matter the reason for initiating this project, it’s always a solid investment.
But between conversations about where the air hockey table could go, how much living space and storage space you’ll want, and whether or not to add a bathroom, the one thing that often gets overlooked is how you’ll be heating and cooling your finished basement.
Before any framing or drywall starts going up, you need to take a step back and think about how you want your HVAC system to help keep your new, liveable space comfortable throughout the year.
A cooling emergency requires fast action to restore the function of your home’s cooling system. Particularly during the hot months of summer, a total cooling breakdown can cause the temperature and humidity levels in your home to rise quickly, increasing discomfort and even risking damage to the materials in your home.
When a cooling issue arises in your home, knowing when you should call for emergency AC repair service can provide you with the peace of mind that comes with taking the right steps to rectify the situation.
Just like your car, your HVAC system needs regular servicing to maintain its performance level. Each year, scheduling biannual system maintenance, allows you and your trusted service partner to keep tabs on your heating and cooling system in terms of age and performance, as well as evaluate any changes in your home comfort needs. This biannual heating and cooling service appointment is the perfect time to take stock of your current system and determine whether repairs, upgrades, or replacements are needed, either today or in the near future.
Here are few things we think you need to remember this heating season…
1. Keep your furnace filter cleaned 2. Have your furnace maintenance every year
Your filter is what is removing all the dust, dander and debris from your air in your home. Remember, there are TWO filters in your house – your furnace filter and your lungs! Let’s make sure the furnace filter is taking the brunt of the dust and allergens, not your body.
Since your furnace is what moves the air during heating AND cooling season throughout your home, a dirty air filter can stop that air from moving. What happens is the fan inside your furnace/air handler can’t pull the air it needs from your ductwork causing it to work harder than it should.
A good example of this is a clothes dryer! If you don’t clean the filter on your dryer it can’t get enough air to dry your clothes and may break. Can you imagine not changing that filter? Continue reading →
When it comes to heating and air conditioning equipment, Hauser Air believes that bigger isn’t always better. You’ll see the best results, longest life and most energy efficiency from a system that’s designed for the space you want to cool and heat.
A knowledgeable Hauser Air technician can help you identify the best fit for your home and budget, but here are just a few of the factors that he or she will consider when making that recommendation:
Square footage of the heated/cooled space. If your HVAC system is designed for a smaller space than you’re heating/cooling, you probably won’t be pleased with its performance. Moreover, it will likely use more energy and experience more wear and tear than a properly sized system. On the other end of the spectrum, a system that’s too powerful could waste energy by cycling on and off too often. Not only would you be paying more than you need to in initial costs, but you’d also use more energy than necessary to maintain the desired temperature.
The Southwest Ohio climate. Temperate areas may not need the most powerful heating and cooling equipment on the market.
Zones! Do you need separate controls for different parts of your house? This is especially important to consider in larger houses.
Here at Hauser Air, we want to ensure you have the best cooling system for your home. High efficiency cooling means less wasted energy, which translates directly into monthly savings for you. Today, there are many ways to improve the efficiency of your air conditioning, ranging from small changes in the way you cool your home to making a commitment to purchase a high-efficiency unit when it’s time for total system replacement. Your air conditioning service has all the answers you need to start living a cooler, more comfortable, and high-efficiency lifestyle today. Continue reading →
