Maintaining an efficient air conditioner allows homeowners to enjoy endless benefits. Reduced energy costs and a more comfortable home are just a sample of the advantages of professional AC repair. Brush up on some HVAC maintenance tips for your own home by watching this video.
Angie’s List founder Angie Hicks suggests multiple strategies for eliminating extra AC costs. Keeping lamps and other heat-emitting items well away from your thermostat can prevent your HVAC unit from running longer than necessary. Changing out your air filters regularly can also go a long way toward maintaining air conditioning efficiency.

On-demand water heating is the main feature that separates tankless water heaters from their traditional counterparts. Review the following advantages of tankless water heaters before you call a heating contractor:
Endless Hot Water: On-demand heating ensures that hot water is always available in your home. As a result, families never again have to worry about running out of hot water when showering, cooking, or washing dishes.
Reduced Energy Use: Water stored in a traditional tank water heater continuously loses heat to the surrounding air, which forces the heater to use energy constantly to maintain the set water temperature. Tankless heaters end this energy waste by only heating water when it’s needed. This efficiency saves money on energy bills—in fact, EnergyStar.gov reports over $100 annual savings for households that replace their old tank water heaters with new tankless models!
Versatile Installation Options: Most conventional water heaters have strict limitations regarding where they can be installed, due to their size and venting needs. Yet tankless water heaters, which are relatively small and wall-mounted, can be installed in numerous places around the home. Moreover, replacing large water tanks with space-saving tankless units frees up storage in garages, utility closets, and basements.
Long-Term Functionality: Many families prefer tankless water heaters due to their durability, as the service life of most tankless water heaters exceeds 20 years. Additionally, tankless units put an end to worries about water damage from tank leaks and deterioration due to scale build-up. This green upgrade is perfect for homeowners who are tired of dealing with a water heater that routinely breaks down.

A home energy audit can help identify where your household is wasting energy on a daily basis. This video from the U.S. Department of Energy explains how such audits specifically address problems through the use of numerous tests.
A comprehensive energy audit includes a safety evaluation, leak checks, and infrared scans in order to help determine where a home is lacking in overall energy efficiency. Corrections to weak spots in insulation and heating and cooling efficiency can save a family hundreds of dollars annually!
At McCrea Heating and Air Conditioning, we encourage DC homeowners to schedule an energy audit as soon as possible. Put over 70 years of household climate control experience to work for your family by visiting our website or calling (800) 788-6216 today!
