June 2018 Trivia Contest Winner Announcement

 

Trivia this time around saw a lot of trivia heavy-hitters! Having received a whopping 221 entries, over 50 of you got the answer correct!

Now that the air conditioning season is well underway, we asked you: “What is the most common cause of poor air flow in heating and cooling systems?”

The answer? It’s not your fan blades or blower motor. It’s those dirty or clogged air filters.

Considering that so many of you got the answer right, we had to randomly select a winner from our pool of trivia experts. Please join us in congratulating Renae Elert for not only knowing that air filters are important for air quality and flow, but also for being our lucky winner!

Although the average temperature in Minnesota is 55 degrees, summer will be here before we know it (fingers crossed!). And Minnesota isn’t a slouch in the summer as temps have been known to skyrocket to 100 degrees in the past. During those hot, humid months you want a reliable and effective air conditioner helping your home stay cool.

How to Reduce Air Conditioning Costs

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 75% of homes have air conditioners and account for 6% of all electricity produced in the country. And all of that electricity costs homeowners around $29 billion annually, which is a huge chunk of change. So how can you reduce, or eliminate, your reliance on costly central air conditioning?

Everything You Need to Know About Air Conditioning FiltersAir conditioning filters aren’t just glorified sheets of polyester that you slide into your air conditioner every month. On the contrary, air filters are vital components to any HVAC or central air system that ensure your home’s air conditioner runs smoothly and safely — all while reducing your energy bill.

If you’ve ever wondered why you need to purchase multiple air filters each year, you’re not alone. As such a small, replaceable component to air conditioning systems, they’re easy parts to gloss over when performing routine air conditioner maintenance. But that doesn’t mean they should be ignored.
