Having a great furnace, HVAC, and air condition system will help regulate the temperatures in your home and keep you comfortable year-round, but it isn’t the answer to every energy issue you face. Old houses, drafty houses, houses that haven’t been audited for energy efficiency—these kinds of things will affect your overall comfort level and your monthly heating/cooling bill.

To save money on energy costs and ensure that you’re doing everything you can to keep your energy usage low, here are a few home energy tips that can enhance your heating/cooling experience.

Springtime in Park City is one of the most beautiful sights in the world—as long as you aren’t one of the thousands of people who suffer from pollen allergies. As the flowers and trees break out in full bloom, pollen fills the air and the streets—as well as our homes. If your heating and cooling systems aren’t up to date, you may find that even your own four walls aren’t protection enough against the allergies that plague you.

Air conditioners and lightning storms don’t always get along so well. Electrical storms have a way of damaging homes and the technological devices that fill them, and we see our fair share of air conditioning repair in Park City because of the damaging power surges that often accompany a summer storm.

Although the process tends to vary depending on your unit and the storm, most cooling system damage comes in the shape of blown fuses, burnt capacitors, fried compressors, and burned wires. Some of these (compressors) can be costly, while others (capacitors) tend to be a much easier fix. In most cases, your home’s insurance will cover damages that can be linked to a storm, so be sure and check your policy before you call.
