Bensalem, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/15/2017 -- Local residents looking to stay cool this summer are turning to Dowd Mechanical, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc., one of the most trusted names in AC installation in Doylestown, PA. The technicians at Dowd Mechanical have seen firsthand how hard a summer without functioning air conditioning can be, so they are helping local residents beat the heat with tips for when the temperature peaks.
Homeowners waiting on AC repair in Warminster, PA are advised to use ceiling fans to create a breeze, keeping the air more comfortable even when the indoor temperature is 82 degrees. Furthermore, installing white window shades and mini-blinds can help residents to reduce the solar heat gain on the interior of their homes by up to 50 percent. During the hottest part of the day, homeowners are advised to keep the drapes drawn and doors and windows closed to reduce unwanted heat and humidity. Planting shade trees around the home and installing awnings on south-facing windows can also reduce sun exposure. Indoors, it is essential to ensure that attics are adequately ventilated to prevent excess heat buildup.
Those who are looking to save additional energy and money on their heating and cooling bills are encouraged to take advantage of PECO rebates for the purchase of ENERGYSTAR systems. ENERGYSTAR-approved heating and cooling systems are certified to be the top-of-the-line in energy conservation, which is why PECO offers rebates valued at up to $350 for the purchase of a new HVAC system or water heater. Homeowners who switch their fuel source from electric to natural gas are eligible for additional rebates.
