Ceiling fanWhen our Delaware, Maryland and Pennylvania temperatures soar, your A/C is stressed to the max. Supplementing with fans is a great way to stay comfortable without lowering your thermostat. In fact, you may even be able to raise that temperature setting for greater savings without sacrificing comfort.

Most people use fans to keep cool when the A/C is not running. But they can also efficiently supplement your A/C. Here's what to do:

  1. Change the switch on your ceiling fan to have the blade turn slowly in a clockwise direction. This will not blow air directly on you -- rather, it will pull colder air that otherwise would settle at floor level and circulate it throughout the room. This air movement over your skin helps your body to stay cool and dry.Do this only when you occupy a room. A ceiling fan running in an empty room just wastes energy. 
     
  2. If you have one of today's more efficient systems with a variable speed blower, we recommend that you set the thermostat to the fan on position throughout the cooling season. That will gently circluate treated air throughout your home. This circulation not only will keep you cooler but has the added benefit of keeping your home's air cleaner with greater volume passing through the air filter. Best of all, these blowers operate with low cost direct current (DC) rather than with a conventional blower's more expensive alternating current (AC).

​We trust these tips will keep you cool and dry throughout the beastly days of summer. If something does go wrong, give us a call at 800-PERKOSKI 800-737-5675. A member of our team will take your call 24/7/365.

If you haven't done so already, schedule your annual maintenance service now. It's never too late. There's no better way to assure a comfortable problem-free summer. And if your A/C does break down later this season, you'll enjoy priority service AND we'll refund the cost of the maintenance service.

NOTE: Be sure to ask for Stan's FREE life-extending water heater inspection included with every repair and maintenance service.
