4 simple tips to use less energy and spend less money this spring. Visit Deiter Bros. for air conditioning upgrades, household tips, and more.

 

Easy Ways to Save Energy in PA this Spring

Spring has officially sprung! Things are finally starting to thaw and Lehigh Valley homeowners are tackling spring cleaning projects to prepare for warmer weather. Are you looking for simple ways to use less energy while maintaining premium home comfort? Here are some industry-approved tips to help you do just that:

1.     Weatherproof your home
Caulking your windows and insulating doors are great ways to keep your home the temperature you want it. Sealing up air leaks will prevent hot air from getting in and precious A/C air from escaping out.

2.     Book your tune-up

An annual air conditioning tune-up is essential to prepare your equipment for the summer season. One yearly visit from our HVAC specialists will help increase operating efficiency, lower utility bills, reduce the risk of midseason breakdowns, extend equipment lifespan, and help avoid expensive surprise repairs.

If you sign up for an A/C service plan, you’ll benefit from an included tune-up plus important service plan benefits like priority repair service, special repair discounts, and more.

 

3.     Wash clothes in cold water
Run your washing machine on cold to spend less on water heating. Unless you have a serious stain, cold water can clean clothes just as effectively as hot water. Plus, cold-washing clothes helps prevent shrinking, fading and color bleeding.

4.     Consider an upgrade

If your air conditioning system is 15 years or older, you could save up to 10% on annual energy costs by upgrading to a new high-efficiency model. Eventually, older systems will require more frequent repairs, which add up! Investing in a new high-efficiency air conditioner will provide long-term savings and better overall comfort.

Ductless Air Conditioning in Lehigh Valley, PA| Deiter Bros.
With cooling and heating functionalities, ductless is an affordable way to cool your house. Contact Deiter Bros. to equip your PA home with a ductless A/C!

 

Why You Need a Ductless Mini-Split A/C

Pennsylvania homeowners in the Greater Lehigh Valley area get the best of both worlds throughout the year—a nice balance of warmth and cold. To accommodate for these varying temperatures, there’s nothing better than a Mitsubishi ductless mini-split air conditioner. This versatile equipment can be used for cooling or heating, depending on the weather and your family’s preference.

Benefits of a Ductless Air Conditioner in PA

Central A/C is nice, but is it really worthwhile to pay to cool your entire home, including the rooms you don’t use very often? Instead, cool the rooms you use the most with zoned heating, a common energy-saving strategy in PA. Here are some perks to this useful equipment:

 

Zoned Cooling Saves You Money

Cooling every room in your house is an expensive luxury. Instead, just air condition the rooms you use the most—for example, your bedrooms, living room, and kitchen. Install them into any and all rooms you want, without wasting money and electricity on areas you don’t use.

 

Whisper-Quiet Operation

This almost-silent appliance is perfect for families who don’t want to be disturbed by annoying sounds in their living areas. The indoor units are quiet, which allows you and your family members to enjoy listening to each other instead of your cooling equipment.

 

Efficient Electric Power

Electricity is well-known for its high efficiency. Since ductless mini-splits run on your home’s electricity, there’s no need to worry about keeping fuel in stock for your unit. Simply turn the A/C on at the temperature you want, kick back, and enjoy total comfort.

 

Sleek Design & Easy Installation

Ductless mini-splits look nice and are simple to install, because they are hooked up to the walls in the rooms you want. One outdoor unit connects to one or more indoor units, making the ductless mini-split exactly what you want it to be: nothing more, nothing less.

 

Mitsubishi’s “Hyper Heat” technology Makes this a Year-Round Tool

Did you know that ductless mini-splits can be used to heat as well as cool? Mitsubishi’s Hyper Heat technology provides efficient heating in temperatures as low as -13!

How Clean Is the Air in Your Home?

We often hear about pollution and air toxins in our environment, but did you know that the air inside your home can be over ten times more harmful? Our homes and businesses can be a breeding ground and safe haven for airborne bacteria and chemicals, which seriously affect the health of our families. Stick around to learn how to improve the indoor air quality of your home.

Improving Air Quality

Having high-quality indoor air is significant for your family’s comfort and safety. Here are some simple and productive steps you can take to make sure the air in your home is clean and safe.

Install Radon and CO2 Detectors

Homes in 2019 are all equipped with smoke detectors—but have you tested for Radon and do you have a CO2 detector? These invisible chemicals can be toxic to anyone living in your home, and should be monitored at all times. We recommend placing these detectors in accordance with manufacturers recommendations for best results.

Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned

Most homeowners in Pennsylvania have ductwork installed in their homes for either heating, air conditioning, or both. This HVAC luxury can have an unexpected danger, though; mold, pollen, Pet dander, and other allergens can catch in the ductwork, polluting all the air that’s cycled through your home. If you want to have your ductwork inspected or cleaned, contact us right away so we can get you scheduled.

Decorate with Plants

Plants add a homey and comfortable feel to your house, but they also have air-cleaning benefits. EcoWatch.com recommends aloe vera, bamboo, and spider plants to clean the air of chemicals such as carbon monoxide, benzene, trichloroethylene, and formaldehyde.

Use Rugs to Keep Pollutants Out

Purchasing a thick rug for every entrance to your home can improve your indoor air quality by reducing the amount of chemicals and pollutants that are tracked inside. Traffic from shoes, paws, and bags can bring in an unprecedented amount of germs.

            Bathe Pets Regularly

Dander from pets can accumulate in air vents and ductwork in your home, which is why you should bathe your animals regularly. Dogs can be bathed about once a month, and cats one to two times a year. This will decrease the amount of dander and pet hair that cycles through the air you breathe.
