Time for March Madness
Make Sure Your Home Is Ready for the Big Dance
Game on! March Madness has officially tipped off. As the nation’s best players suit up and rally for the championship title, now is a good time for you, as a homeowner, to look at your own team—your home’s comfort team, to be exact. After all, no one wants to deal with the sudden need for an air conditioning repair in Palm Desert, CA
or another city in the Coachella Valley before this season even reaches its halftime.
Building an All-Star Roster
For a basketball coach, having a Dream Team that consists of players like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain and Shaquille O’Neal might be out of reach. For homeowners, though, there are simple steps you can take to ensure you’ve stacked your comfort line-up with the best five players.
- Center: The HVAC Unit. Your comfort system is the heart of your home and the biggest defender against the Coachella Valley’s hot temperatures. So, with the change of the seasons and the arrival of warmer weather, it’s especially important to give your HVAC system the TLC it needs. A professional, like one of our Timo’s Air Conditioning & Heating experts, can perform system testing, safety checks, a full mechanical inspection and more. This way, your air conditioner can be fully counted on to see you through every heat wave and hot day.
- Power Forward: Insulation. Your HVAC system is the biggest contributor to monthly utility bills, yet many people are unaware that poor attic insulation can result in the loss of valuable air (and can cause your utility bills to rise!). To ensure that your cooled air stays right where you want it, our team can visit your home and assess your attic’s insulation—free of charge.
- Small Forward: Windows. While whole-home comfort is a top priority, it’s equally important to ensure that your house is efficient, too. So, in addition to insulating your attic, seal and insulate any gaps or drafty areas around your windows and doors, too. Not only will this prevent that precious conditioned air from escaping your rooms, it will also yield big energy savings.
- Shooting Guard: A Smart Thermostat. Take charge of climate control and score extra points with the whole family by installing a smart thermostat. These thermostats can save up to 10 percent per year on utility bills. Plus, they adapt to your unique lifestyle, and you can tailor temperatures based on sleep, work and vacation times.
- Point Guard: Ductwork. Similar to how a point guard makes sure that the basketball gets to the right players at the right times, your home’s ductwork is responsible for carrying air from your HVAC system to the necessary areas of your home. Unfortunately, though, while most of us consider our home to be a place of comfort and safety, the EPA reports that indoor air is two to five times (and up to 100 times!) more polluted than outdoor air. Why? Largely because of dirty ducts. So, this spring, schedule a professional air duct cleaning to carefully remove contaminants like pollen, mold, bacteria, pet dander and dust—because a healthy home is a happy home.
