We’re not even officially into spring yet, and chances are you’ve had to run your air conditioner a number of times this year already.

Most homeowners in the area rightfully focus on temperature control when keeping their houses comfortable. Our summers are long and staggeringly hot, and without a good air conditioner, you might just melt on the spot. But as important as it is, it’s not the only aspect of home comfort. Indoor air quality can play a huge role in making your house feel right. We get a lot of dust in the air in the Inland Empire, especially in the summer, as well as high humidity levels and the proliferation of germs and allergens.

Soon enough, another blazing summer will be upon us, which means that now is the time to consider improving your home’s energy efficiency.

Furnaces don’t see nearly as much use as air conditioners do in the Inland Empire, where winters are mild and extremely brief. But we still need them during this time of year, when temperatures can get quite chilly (especially late at night). And it can be easy to overlook the signs of trouble with your furnace, especially if they don’t result in a flat-out shutdown. If you have an older furnace and you spot signs of trouble, you may want to consider replacing it before too much time goes by.
