    What Is Involved with Weatherproofing a Home or Business?

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Weatherproofing is a general term used to describe the process of protecting your home or business from external environmental conditions. This can include a wide range of services including heating and cooling maintenance, duct repair and inspections, and insulation and weather stripping upgrades. The goal of weatherproofing is to provide greater indoor comfort, improved energy efficiency, and minimal external interference with your home’s indoor environment.

    Although weatherproofing can take many directions, it’s important that your home or building’s weatherproofing issues be properly diagnosed ahead of time. This typically involves an energy audit, a series of tests to identify energy- and weather-related problem areas. With the data provided in your energy audit, you’ll have a much clearer understanding of which changes will have the biggest overall effect on your home’s energy consumption and comfort.

    At Swift Air Mechanical, we provide a wide range of services that can help to improve your home’s heating and cooling efficiency, as well as enhance indoor comfort and air quality. Based on the results of your energy audit, we can design the appropriate maintenance plan to tackle your home or business’s biggest problems. This may include regular HVAC maintenance, AC replacement, improved air filtration, or dehumidifier installation.

    If you live in the Indianapolis area, you know that throughout the calendar year you experience the best and the worst that the four seasons have to offer. Super hot summers and chilly winters can drive energy costs way up due to expensive heating and cooling, and you may not even get to enjoy the full capacity of your HVAC system.

    The Basics of Geothermal Heating and Cooling

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Saving money while heating and cooling the home is a priority for many homeowners. In fact, because the costs of climate control can make up half of a monthly energy bill, it's often the top priority. This is where geothermal heat pumps come in. By harnessing natural energy from just under the Earth's surface, you can enjoy an efficient way to keep your home comfortable.

    This video provides an introduction to geothermal climate control. About 10 feet below the surface of the ground, the temperature is constant. In the summer, the ground is cooler than the outside air, and the opposite is true in the winter. With a system of heat-exchanging pipes, this energy can be harnessed.

    Getting the Most Use Out of Your Programmable Thermostat

    Last updated 4 years ago

    A programmable thermostat is a tool that many homeowners don't realize the full potential of. It is more than just a convenient means of controlling your home's temperature. By taking advantage of your programmable thermostat’s intelligent settings and using it with a properly-calibrated HVAC system, you can realize energy savings and reduced utility bills.

    A programmable thermostat offers several key advantages right out of the box in comparison to a single-set point thermostat. Traditional thermostats don't allow you to adjust the temperature when you're not at home and would require constant vigilance in order to provide savings anywhere near those that a programmable thermostat can offer.

    • Use an ENERGY STAR Model
      By using an ENERGY STAR-qualified programmable thermostat, your home's cooling system can become an energy-saving powerhouse. If you have yet to install a programmable thermostat, ask your air conditioning company about adaptive units that learn your comfort preferences. These will help you stay more comfortable when you're at home, and increase your energy savings when you're not.
       
    • Set Your Thermostat to the Right Temperatures
      Keep your thermostat set to 78 degrees or higher when you're not at home or when you're asleep. When set to these temperatures for eight-hour periods or longer, your thermostat can help you achieve the most energy savings possible. These times are typically when you're at work or school and sleeping during the night. The energy you save during these times will be reflected on your utility bill, and you will still be able to enjoy more comfortable temperatures when you are at home and awake.
       
    • Consider HVAC Zoning
      Consider using multiple thermostats throughout your home. This is called zoning, and requires the assistance of an HVAC contractor to implement. Zoning enables you to avoid cooling areas that are unoccupied, which in turn saves energy.

    For more great tips to help you get the most energy efficiency out of your system with a programmable thermostat, contact Swift Air Mechanical, Inc. in Indianapolis at (317) 547-5355. We can help you learn how to make your entire home and HVAC system more energy efficient for increased comfort and savings.
