Winter Energy Savings Tips

Heat Pump Maintenance:

  • Dirty filters cause the system to work harder, leading to higher energy costs. Check air filters monthly and clean or replace when dirty.
  • Ensure there is at least 18 inches on all sides of your outdoor unit clear of snow, ice, shrubs, and debris.
  • Keep the coils on your outdoor unit clean. Apex Heating and Air can clean the coils with an approved cleaner to ensure your unit is running at top condition.
  • Call Apex Heating and Air to schedule an inspection of your heat pump before the cold weather sets in.

More Energy Savings Tips:

  • Invest in a programmable smart thermostat and set it to turn the heat down when you are out of town or away from home. This easy home upgrade can cut energy costs by up to 12% and will continue to reduce AC costs in the upcoming spring and summer.
  • Install weather stripping around doors and windows to help keep the cold out.
  • If you have a traditional fireplace, be sure the flue is closed when not in use to avoid heat from escaping. Similarly, avoid leaving bathroom fans, range hoods, and exhaust fans running for long periods as they will suck heat from your home.
  • Take advantage of the world’s best natural heat source — the sun! Open curtains of windows facing the sun during the heat of the day, then close curtains to hold the heat in.
  • Reverse your fan’s blades to a clockwise rotation to help push the warm air down to where you are.

In recognition of its commitment to quality, leadership and excellence in the heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) industry, Apex Heating and Air Conditioning Inc. of Apex, NC, recently received the 2019 President’s Award from Carrier.

Founded in 1969, Apex Heating and Air Conditioning Inc. is celebrating our 50th year of providing service or replacement of heating and cooling products in Apex, NC and the surrounding area.

Our owner since 1989, Kenny Markham, sets the tone of our company as our leader. Kenny is the first person to arrive at work every day. His daily contact with every employee in the company, checking in and being available to answer questions or give specific directions, is one of our most valuable assets. As each day gets started, you can count on Kenny personally receiving service calls from several of his longtime customers that he still takes care of himself. This is in addition to being dispatched on service calls from the office and checking on install jobsites. His free time is spent hunting, farming and spending time with his family. His guidance to every employee is simple, “Treat every customer’s house like it is your momma’s.”
