Tips for Keeping Your Home Cool

Fans and Ceiling Fans

  • If you’re looking for ways to beat the heat, a ceiling fan can be a great investment for your home. This one appliance can make a room feel 6 or 7 degrees cooler, and even the most power-hungry fan costs less than $10 a month to use if you keep it on for 12 hours a day. Good fans make it possible for you to raise your thermostat setting and save on air-conditioning costs. Fans don’t use much energy, but when air is circulating, it feels much cooler. Ceiling fans are best, but a good portable fan can be very effective as well.
  • You should remember that even mild air movement of 1 mph can make you feel three or four degrees cooler. Also make sure your ceiling fan is turned for summer – you should feel the air blown downward.

Spooks Lives to Meow Another Day

Spooks the Cat

It was very early in the morning when Rebecca called with a request to retrieve Spooks (one of the family cats) from the inside of the furnace duct work. We had installed the system in June of 2010 and she figured that if anyone would be able to save this tiny cat, it would be Tingey Plumbing & Heating. We had a full schedule so we had to move our first customer, Pet Stop Clinic to the next day. Needless to say they were very understanding of the life or death rescue of this cat. Our HVAC technician Rob announced that this would be his second rescue of an animal, in trouble, although the first rescue did not have the best ending. Rob started his diagnosis of where the tiny cat had entered the duct work and started his tracking of the cat in the system, as Spooks continued to move and make his presence known Rob eventually tracked him to a wall area. Sheetrock was carefully removed from the wall and a furnace camera was inserted into the recesses of the wall and to everyone’s delight Spooks was located and was  crouched just out of reach.
