3 Winter Home Heating Tips

Posted on: October 4th, 2017 by Precision Temperature No Comments

Though far from frigid, winters in the San Diego area can get downright chilly, especially away from the coast! Here are three tips to help keep your home warm this winter without sending your energy bills through the roof.

  1. Take Advantage of the Power of the Sun

One way to warm up your home without turning up the heat is by opening your blinds and allowing the sunlight to warm the room’s air. Once direct sunlight is no longer hitting the window, closing the curtains or blinds can help prevent any heat gained from being lost again.

Warm Home Heating with Precision Temperature Lakeside

  1. Check Your Home’s Insulation

Insulation limits the transfer of heat into or out of your home, reducing the amount of energy required to maintain your desired interior temperature. If your heating costs are rising, your home may not be properly insulated, allowing the heat from your carefully warmed home to transfer away into the cold outdoor air.

  1. Reduce Air Leakage

Preventing indoor air from leaking out of and outdoor air from leaking into your home helps maintain a constant interior temperature. Caulking cracks and around doors and windows and weatherstripping doors helps reduce air leakage.

Fall is the best time to prepare your home and heating system for the winter. Clean or replace your air filter and test your system now to ensure it works when you need it.

If your heating costs are rising, you might need a more efficient heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Precision Temperature can help you find the best system for your home and wallet. We can also help keep your system running at peak efficiency with regular maintenance service.

Protect Yourself and Your Teens with Locking Refrigerant Caps

Posted on: August 2nd, 2017 by Precision Temperature No Comments

Incidents of teens huffing HVAC refrigerant in order to get high are on the rise. This can cause health problems such as difficulty breathing, irregular heart rhythms, nerve and brain damage, and even death. If your air conditioning unit isn’t effectively cooling your home during the hot summer months and your HVAC technician discovers that your system’s refrigerant is low, but finds no leak in your equipment, it is possible that someone is tampering with your system to huff the refrigerant.

To prevent these incidents, the California Mechanical Code was changed, resulting in CMC 1106.3.1. CMC 1106.3.1 mandates that all outdoor refrigerant service ports be fitted with locking-type tamper-resistant caps or be otherwise protected from unauthorized access. Locking refrigerant caps and the tools to remove them are not sold to the public; only an HVAC professional can install and remove them, ensuring that the refrigerant in your system isn’t accessible to your teens or those who would harm themselves by huffing it and that your HVAC system will continue to function effectively.

Be proactive about ensuring the health and safety of yourself and those around you. If your outdoor HVAC unit’s refrigeration ports are not currently fitted with these locking, tamper-resistant caps, contact a local air conditioning professional such as Precision Temperature today.

3 Ways to Keep Your Home Cool This Summer

Posted on: May 26th, 2017 by Precision Temperature No Comments

Summers in the San Diego area are known for being hot and humid, especially in inland areas such as El Cajon and Alpine. Leaving your home and heading to an indoor, heavily air conditioned public space such as a mall or movie theater are common suggestions to beat the heat. These tips don’t help you to enjoy the summer in the comfort of your own home, however. Here are three ways to keep your home cool this summer so you don’t have to flee the house.

  1. Trap Cool Air Inside

The outdoor air cools off significantly during the night. You can take advantage of this to help keep your home cool during the day. Open all the windows in your house each night to allow the cool night air inside; in the morning, close all the windows and the shades to trap the cool air inside and prevent warming sunlight from entering and heating it up again. This has the added bonus of also keeping you comfortable while you sleep!

Ceiling Fan Can Keep Your Home Cool this Summer

  1. Fans

A ceiling room fan or table-top fan can provide great relief from the heat, albeit only in a small area of your home. Fans work by helping to speed the evaporation of perspiration and carrying heat away from your skin. It is therefore worth noting that a fan only cools people; it cannot alter the actual air temperature of the room. Turn off fans when no one is in the room to avoid wasting electricity.

  1. Turn on The Air Conditioning

Of course, the quickest and easiest way to chill down your home is to turn on the air conditioning. Your air conditioner will provide a more comfortable environment than either trapping cold air indoors or using a fan because it is the only home cooling method that also reduces humidity. You’ll also have more control over your home’s temperature when using your air conditioner. In order to reduce energy consumption and lower your cooling bill, the Department of Energy recommends setting your thermostat at 78°F when you are at home in the summer and even warmer when you are away.

Precision Temperature’s certified HVAC technicians can help prepare your air conditioning system to keep you comfortable all summer long. Give us a call today at (619) 588-5321 for any of your home cooling needs!
