The Value of Locksmith Services

There are few things worse than coming home from work to find your home has been broken into. Sadly, this happened to me not long ago. My name is Jana, and I’m the single mother of two little girls. After reporting the burglary, a police officer suggested that I call a locksmith. The locksmith asked if I had any spare keys around the house that may have been stolen. Sure enough, I had some hanging on a key rack, and they were gone! I was worrying about jewelry and electronics; I never even thought to look for my keys. That night we replaced all my locks and rekeyed my car. To be extra safe, the locksmith made his next stop at my parents. (I had keys to their house on that key rack.) Locksmiths offer a valuable service; I’m happy to share why they're so great!

4 Things To Consider When Installing An Evaporative Cooler For Central AC

If you live in a dry climate and want to have an energy efficient AC, evaporative coolers can be a great option. These systems use the process of evaporation of water to provide your home with cooling. They are commonly used as a small cooling solution, but they can also be used for central HVAC systems. Here are some things that you may want to know about these systems before you have them installed:

1. Installing The Unit On The Roof Or Side Of Your Home

There are a couple of options for installing an evaporative cooler.  Coolers can be installed on the rooftop in an area where they are not noticeable. Rooftop units can lose efficiency due to sunlight, and they can be hard to service.  You can also have the unit installed on a wall on the side of your home. This can be in a shaded area and make maintenance area, but they can be bulky and unsightly if you have limited space.

2. Choosing How To Install The Ducts For Your Cooler

You also will have a choice of how you have the ductwork installed for your cooler. If you have a rooftop unit, you may want to have the ductwork installed in the attic. For a wall-mounted unit, the ducts can be located in a crawlspace or basement. If you have existing HVAC ductwork, you will probably want to use the existing ducts, but the further away they are from the unit, the less efficient it will cool.

3. Adding A Small Filter For The Water Supply With Hard Water

In many areas, hard water can be a problem. Heavy metals and minerals in the water can damage mechanical systems over time. If evaporative coolers use hard water, calcium buildup can form on the parts of the unit. To prevent this problem, you can have a small filter installed for the water line of the unit to reduce problems with hard water.

4. The Regular Maintenance Requirements Of An Evaporative Cooler

Another thing to consider with evaporative coolers is the maintenance they require. You will need to check things like the water reservoir regularly, change filters and make sure parts are working. Most of these tasks are simple, but need to be done to ensure the system is working efficiently.  

Evaporative coolers can be an affordable solution to cool your home in the right conditions. If you are thinking about installing an evaporative cooler for your home, contact an HVAC contractor like Sullivan Super Service to find out what type of system will be right for the cooling needs of your home.
