Saving Money on Heating and Air in Yukon

If you live in Yukon, you have experienced its severe summer climate. It usually averages around a hundred degrees Fahrenheit, with the highest temperature reaching around one hundred and fifteen degrees! Winters in Yukon, on the other hand, easily bring temperatures below freezing. These extreme differences in climate stress the need for proper heating and air conditioning. Often, these services are not cheap, and you may find yourself hit with unpleasant bills. There are a few steps you can take to save money on heating and air in Yukon, however.

Insulation Care

Saving money on heating and air in Yukon starts with your home’s insulation. Proper insulation can actually reduce your costs by around 20%! Those kinds of savings add up quickly.

At Excel Mechanical Plumbing, Heating & Air, we are able to properly service your home’s insulation to help you save as much money on your heating bill as possible. You’ll notice the difference—your house will be warmer, but you’ll be spending less money and saving more energy in the process.

Air Duct Cleaning

We can ensure your air ducts are free of airborne contaminates such as pet hair, dust and bacteria. Cleaner air ducts lead to cleaner air appliances and clean air appliances are less likely to break down. Over time, this leads to reduced energy costs and cleaner air. It’s a beneficial cycle!

Faulty Air Conditioner Servicing

“This should go without saying,” you might be saying. You’d be absolutely right—it should. However, most people don’t call for servicing until an air conditioner stops working completely. You should, in fact, call us to have it serviced as soon as you detect any problems such as decreased airflow, strange noises, or unpleasant odors. This will save you from bigger, costlier repairs down the line. Also, having us repair your air conditioner as soon as you detect a problem keeps you from sacrificing your air quality for too long.

Winter Heating Advice

Saving money on heating and air in Yukon is not a complicated process at all. In fact, a large portion of it is common sense! First, prevent heat from escaping your home by keeping doors and windows shut. If you detect an air leak, replace the weather stripping. Next, keep your shades closed at night. This will keep heat in your home. Finally, you should check on your attic. Heat often disappears through attic vents, especially if your home is not properly insulated.

If you follow these steps and still find yourself too chilly in the winter, contact us. We will be able to assess the problem and make any necessary repairs.
As you can see, proper heating and air in Yukon does not have to be a complicated or expensive process. All it takes is a little help from the experts and you’ll be saving money in no time!
