Our temperatures have already been in the upper 90's in the Brazos Valley. Make sure that your Air Conditioning is running efficiently. We recommend these three steps: 1. Change your air filters every month. 2. Have your AC equipment checked and serviced in the spring. 3. Check your ducts for leaks. This is a huge source of energy loss in most homes. Unfortunately this is not part of most new home inspections.
And, of course, if you are building a custom home or remodeling an existing home, there is a great deal that you can do to insure efficiency.
