Maintaining a Comfortable Temperature During Winter Months (part one)
Winter temperatures in Florida do not last long, but when they come, they hit strong. Ocala, Dunnellon and all of Citrus County and Marion County have been experiencing chilly evenings with multiple frost and freeze warnings. As a result, we’ve been receiving an increase in calls for HVAC repair and HVAC installation as homeowners fire up the heat. At BlueSky, we are passionate about educating homeowners on ways they can ensure their HVAC runs more efficiently to help minimize future HVAC repair and HVAC installation costs.
Maintain Your HVAC
Conducting regular AC service is important to maintain the efficiency and integrity of your unit. An efficient unit is better able to regulate the temperature of your home. BlueSky offers affordable AC service packages to help ensure your system is in tip top shape. An efficient system not only saves you on electric costs, but also helps reduce future HVAC repair and HVAC installation costs.
Check the Calibration of Your Thermostat
Thermostats are fairly sensitive and can lose calibration as a result of something as simple as getting bumped. An improperly calibrated thermostat can result in your home being warmer or colder than expected. An indoor thermometer is inexpensive and can be used to check the true temperature inside your home vs. what your thermostat displays. Improper calibration of your thermostat causes your system to lose efficiency and run harder, which can eventually lead pre-mature AC repair and/or AC service costs. BlueSky checks the calibration of your thermostat calibration as part of our routine AC service.
Reverse Ceiling Fans
Reversing your ceiling fans during winter months pushes warm air down into the room. This is especially helpful in keeping areas with high ceilings warm.
