Value Heating Offers Free Guide On How To Keep A Home Cool During A Heatwave

Posted: Updated:

This free guide can homeowners avoid AC Unit failures and keep things cool during the hot summer months.

Boise, ID, U.S.A. – August 1, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ –

A heat wave is currently scorching much of the American west, and has many Boise, Idaho homeowners sweating (quite literally), wondering if the air conditioning out back is going to hold up. Due to the heatwave this summer, Value Heating Inc. in Boise, is now offering a free guide to help homeowners keep the house cool during a heatwave, and avoid the sweating and suffering that accompanies a broken AC unit. To obtain this free guide visit www.valueheating.com.

“Its a terrible thing to be without a working air conditioner during the hottest time of year. Many of our service calls for AC problems could have been prevented by performing just a few simple easy maintenance steps. That is why we created this free guide, to help homeowners avoid costly repairs, and above all, keep cool.” Says Value Heating Inc. owner Dan Ricken.

Below are just a few examples of what the free guide entails.

Change The Filters – Changing AC filters is something that is often overlooked by homeowners,but it is crucial for proper air flow. Clogged, dirty filters block normal airflow and reduce a system’s efficiency significantly. When airflow is hampered by clogged filters, dirt can get directly into the evaporator coil and impair the coil’s heat-absorbing capacity. The U.S. Dept of Energy shows that by changing out a dirty, clogged filter with a new filter will lower an air conditioner’s energy consumption by 5% to 15%.

Check AC Coils – An AC evaporator coil and condenser coil, over time, will inevitably get dirty. This dirt reduces airflow and insulates the coil, reducing its ability to absorb heat. To avoid this problem, check the evaporator coil every year and clean it as necessary.
Try to eliminate any debris and trim foliage around the condenser unit to ensure proper airflow around the unit.

Keep Sunlight Out – The more sunlight that peeks into a house, the hotter the interior of the building will get. By simply closing the blinds will reduce the amount of solar energy that heats up the interior by ten percent.

Hire A Professional – A well trained AC professional will be able to detect problems or potential problems using specialized equipment.
