Before you replace... Try these tips to save on air conditioning

Air conditioning can be expensive to operate for extended periods, but in summer the heat rages all day, so to cut down on costs, here are some energy-saving tips to keep you cool: 

  • Use the ceiling fan first, which is much cheaper to operate. It makes you feel cooler.
  • Get annual maintenance on your AC unit to ensure it is working efficiently. 
  • Get a programmable thermostat which you can set to turn down the AC when you're not home.
  • Verify your air vents and ducts are open and not blocked by anything.

Air Conditioning FAQ & Tips

How often do I need air conditioning and heating maintenanced in Massachusetts?

At Home Mechanics, we recommend that you schedule tune-up services twice a year—once before the start of the summer months and once before winter begins. This can help you avoid unnecessary problems during the hottest and coldest months of the year.

How can I tell if I need professional air conditioning and heating services?

Generally speaking, if your heating, air conditioning, or ventilation systems are not working properly, it’s wise to schedule service with a trained professional. How can you tell if your air conditioning and heating system isn’t working properly? Check for strange noises, unusual smells, reduced efficiency, higher energy bills, or other unexplained issues with your home’s systems.

What are the three types of HVAC and Air Conditioning systems?

There are three main types of air conditioning systems available, including: 

  • Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioners:  Ductless systems are a very popular solution in homes with multi-zone requirements, or when installing ductwork is not favourable or cost prohibitive. Currently in Massachusetts you can enroll in the Mass Save program and receive thousands in rebates towards your ductless mini split installation. 
  • Ducted Air-Conditioning: Ducted heating and air conditioning, also known as Central Air, can be quite efficient and is a popular system in new builds when builders may plan for ductwork throughout the structure of the home. With that said, they can have a high up front cost to plan for and install the ductwork. Central Air may not control individual rooms as easily without custom installation or modification. 
  • Portable Air conditioners: These are units you find in windows and are typically very easy to move room by room, or house by house. With relative low up front costs, they can be an effective way to cool a small area temporarily.

Is ductless better than ducted air conditioning or central air?

In general, yes! 

Ductless is a great investment and solution to heating or cooling different zones of your home and remaining highly energy efficient. Ductless mini-split A/Cs are easy to install, easy to use, and backed by an incredible warranty. 

Check out why ductless mini-splits may be the best next project for your home!

What are the best HVAC Manufacturers in the USA?

Home Mechanics partners with Navien, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi Electric, and Rheem. 

Which air conditioner manufacturer to use may depend on your situation, home size, install location, and many other factors a professional HVAC company can help with.

How much does a new air conditioner system cost in Massachusetts?
