Now that it’s summer, A/Cs are running full blast in most parts of the country and Central Ohio is no exception. If you want to lessen the strain on your air conditioning unit, as well as lower your utility bills, there are several steps you can take to improve the airflow inside your house. The first and easiest is to make sure the filters on your HVAC system are changed monthly. This will make a huge difference in indoor air quality. You can also take advantage of cooler mornings and evenings and open the windows and doors to let the air circulate after the house has been shut up all day. Exhaust fans, ceiling fans, and attic fans all work to circulate air through your home and remove any humidity. Also, make sure that the vents and returns are clear; remove any furniture that may be blocking air vents. If despite your best efforts, your home still feels too warm, call Atlas Butler at 614-681-2167. We can look at your AC unit to make sure it is running properly or it may be that your ducts need cleaning.
