The following is information you should know and use to help assure that your Auburn Air-conditioning is keeping you as cool as possible and working and cooling as efficiently as possible, saving you money. The following should help you decide if you need ABT Plumbing, Electric, Heat Air to service your Air-conditioning unit.
(1) Air filter(s) MUST be clean. They should be located near the return air duct adjacent to the air handler or in a return air grill(s). Check your air filter every 30 to 90 days to make sure it is clean. Depending of the house, i.e. if you have animals you may need to clean the air filter more often. (Go clean them now!)
Low-flow showerheads slash bathing water consumption 50 to 70%. You’ll also use less energy heating up the water, unless you have a tankless heat system, in which case it’s a moot point. Letting your faucet run for five minutes uses as much energy as it takes to keep a 60-watt lightbulb lit for 14 hours, according to the EPA.
Low-flow showerheads are simple to install and start around $25. Many styles and features are available, including flow-adjusting dials and a pause button, which allows you to break for a bit of lathering up, then return to the same temperature and pressure. The EPA is currently developing efficiency standards for the devices through its WaterSense program.
