This summer, you and your family will be depending on your air conditioning to keep your home cool. While regular maintenance can help to ensure that your air conditioning unit continues to work through even the hottest days, there is always the chance that the unit will simply quit. If this occurs, call Morvent’s One Hour for immediate help. Keep these tips in mind for staying cool until your HVAC unit is running again:
Drink Cold Water Keep your body hydrated by drinking plenty of water. This helps regulate your body temperature and replaces the water lost through sweating.
Close Your Blinds Keeping the sun’s rays out of your home is a good step towards maintaining a cool environment. During the day, close all the blinds in your home or, if necessary, hang up dark blankets over your windows.
Place Fans Strategically Ceiling fans and box fans are relatively inexpensive to keep running. During the day, you’ll want to set the box fans at ground level where the cooler air settles; once the sun sets, move them to open windows and doors to blow in the cooler air.
Find Places with Air Conditioning Find excuses to go to places that have functioning air conditioners. Spend the day at the mall or go see a movie. Spending an hour or two in a chilled environment will help keep you cool when you go back out into the heat.
Nothing beats the frigid blast of an operational air conditioner. Contact Morvent’s One Hour at our website or call us at (484) 734-1445 if your A/C unit goes out.

Americans spend $11 billion a year on air conditioning their homes. With about half of the typical household’s energy consumption during the summer months stemming from running a cooling system, focusing on increasing your system’s energy efficiency can go a long way towards decreasing your utility bills.
Though annual servicing of your air conditioning unit requires a professional, there are plenty of other actions that you can take to increase efficiency. Changing your unit’s air filter monthly, placing your unit in a shaded area, and buying a window unit air conditioner that is sized appropriate for the room it will be cooling are all ways to keep your cooling system functioning optimally.

Because of the complexity and variety of modern heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, a certified technician’s service is essential. However, identifying the need for repairs or replacement requires a keen sense of observation. Ask yourself these questions to determine whether you need to set up a consultation with an HVAC certified technician:
Are my utility bills larger more than normal? Heating and air conditioning costs vary throughout the year, but if your utility bill is consistently and unjustifiably more expensive than it has been in the past, it is probably a sign that your system is aging and becoming less energy efficient.
Are some rooms at the desired temperature while others are not? There are potentially a variety of factors that can cause this problem, including poor insulation, inadequately-sealed ducts, or a malfunctioning thermostat.
Is my system more than 10 years old? HVAC systems become less energy efficient as they age. Energy Star recommends that all HVAC equipment older than 10 years be evaluated by a professional. Installing new heating and cooling equipment can cut a fair-sized chunk out of your energy costs.
Are there strange sounds or odors when the unit is running? These are some of the most obvious indications that something is wrong. A grinding, squealing, or clanking noise coming from your air conditioner, or pungent smells blowing from your vents, means that it is time to call a professional.
If you find that the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” the next step is to have a trained professional come out and evaluate your HVAC system.

Cutting down the cost of cooling your house this summer, doesn’t have to mean living in discomfort. There are several ways to save on your air conditioning costs that are simple, and can help provide relief from this heat.
It is important to perform maintenance on all air conditioning units. This tactic can be commonly forgotten, especially when the air conditioner is still working well. However, prevention of problems is always the best way to extend the life of your unit. Replacing the filter monthly during times of extreme heat is important. In addition, have a professional service your system at the beginning of each season.
Another tip is to make sure you have an updated unit with an appropriate SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) number. Make sure your SEER number is at least 13 or better, and 14 is recommended for warmer climates. Older systems can be very in-efficient at doing their job. If you have a system with a SEER rating of less than 8, it is probably worth your while to consider replacing it with a more efficient system.
One great tip for improving the life of your system, for a system of any age, is to make sure your air conditioning condenser is located in a shady spot, and has ample room to dispose of the heated air it removes from the house. An easy way to keep it shady is to plant shade trees and shrubs around the house to reduce the direct heat caused by the sun. Doing this can effectively reduce your costs by 30%!
