Local weather broadcasts have been reporting high temperatures around the corner and we all hoped they would stay away for a bit longer, but there is no such thing as cool weather during Oklahoma summers. Bristow, Sapulpa, Kellyville, Tulsa and Sand Springs, Broken Arrow, and Bixby all had 100+ degree heat as well. It seemed like everywhere experienced 100+ degree temperatures and air conditioning units failing. High temperatures like our area has experienced for the past two days are hot and very uncomfortable. In fact it can be dangerous if you are exposed to them very long. Continue reading
Air conditioning and air conditioning costs were a hot subject in Tulsa last week and not with just the Weather Man on television. I am sure that many of you started using your AC units when temperatures reached the high 80’s. Most of this was due to the local humidity so many of us ran our air conditioners to stay cool and comfortable. This month I am going to give you a few tips on how to stay comfortable and lower the costs of running your air conditioner.
Tune Up Your Air Conditioner
Yes, your air conditioner needs tune ups just like any other piece of mechanical equipment. Keeping your air conditioner tuned up will have the largest impact on lowering your electric bill and air conditioning costs. To locate any problems or deficiencies you need to have an HVAC inspection. Having your total system inspected will locate any problems you have with your compressor, condenser, fans, filters, ducts and blowers.Our inspections include checking the AC filters and HVAC ducts for leaks. Older ducts have been known to leak and when they are leaking, the air conditioning ducts are wasting your conditioned air by letting it escape from the system. Continue reading
