HVAC Tips for Summer: Staying Cool and Saving Energy


As the temperature rises during the summer months, keeping your home cool and comfortable becomes a top priority. With proper HVAC maintenance and smart energy-saving practices, you can beat the heat while also reducing your energy bills. At A-plusquality, our professional and highly skilled team is here to provide you with valuable HVAC tips to ensure a cool and energy-efficient summer.


The scorching summer heat can put a strain on your HVAC system, leading to concerns such as inadequate cooling, reduced efficiency, and increased energy consumption. However, with a few simple tips, you can address these concerns and maintain a comfortable indoor environment.


One of the primary issues that arise during summer is inefficient cooling. To solve this problem, make sure to clean or replace your air filters regularly to ensure proper airflow. Additionally, check the outdoor unit for any debris or obstructions that may hinder its performance.


Proper insulation is another crucial factor in maintaining cool indoor temperatures. Seal any air leaks around windows, doors, and ductwork to prevent cool air from escaping and hot air from entering your home. This helps your HVAC system work more efficiently and saves energy.


Implementing energy-saving practices can significantly reduce your energy bills. Set your thermostat to a higher temperature when you're away from home or use a programmable thermostat to adjust temperatures automatically. Utilize ceiling fans to enhance air circulation and create a cooling effect without relying solely on your HVAC system.


Regular maintenance is essential for the optimal performance of your HVAC system. Schedule a professional tune-up to ensure that all components are clean, lubricated, and functioning properly. This helps extend the lifespan of your system and prevents unexpected breakdowns during the peak summer season.


At A-plusquality, our team of professional and highly skilled technicians is committed to providing top-notch HVAC services. Whether it's routine maintenance, repairs, or system installations, we are here to help you stay cool and save energy during the summer months.


Stay cool and save energy this summer with these HVAC tips. Trust the experts at A-plusquality to meet all your HVAC needs.

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337
