7 Ways to Survive the Texas Summer on a Budget
Master Tech Service Corp. knows exactly how hard it can be to stay cool in the summertime. We also know how tough that can be when you are working on a budget. So, what can you do to make sure that your family is safe and comfy in the Texas heat without increasing your electric bill?
One of the best and most efficient ways to save money in the summer is to make sure you have an energy-efficient air conditioning system. Did you know that properly cleaning your air filters will keep your HVAC system running smoothly and effectively lower your electricity bill? This happens by preventing dust and debris from blocking the vents in your home and prevent blockage of air. If your air filters are dirty, the AC system must work harder and use more energy to provide you with the same level of comfort.
It is best to hire a local contractor like Master Tech Service Corp. to help service your air conditioning system and make sure it is operating efficiently. Our certified technicians make sure that your outdoor coils are clean, we check voltage connections, and make sure the refrigerant is at proper levels.
The U.S. Department of Energy recommends that you set your thermostat to 78°F (26°C) in the summer when you are home for maximum efficiency. If you still feel like warm at this temperature, consider running a ceiling fan at the same time as your AC system when you are in the room.
According to Energy.gov, here are 7 ways to stay cool without breaking the bank:
Use your windows to gain cool air and keep out heat
Operate your thermostat efficiently
Use fans and ventilation strategies to cool your home
Keep your cooling system running efficiently
Don’t heat your home with appliances and lighting
Keep hot air from leaking into your home
Lower your water heating costs

The Master Tech Service Corp. family would like to send our love to everyone that has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic directly and indirectly. There has never been a more critical time for us to band together, and do our part to help flatten the curve. We can do this by continuing to practice social distancing and using discernment when having to leave our homes.
The CDC outlines social distancing as “keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home.“ To practice social distancing:

Testing has not been specifically performed on COVID-19 yet, but this air purifier has been thoroughly tested on other airborne and surface bacteria & viruses such as MRSA, e-coli, and Norwalk.
This air purifier has been approved by the U.S. Military, USDA, and major cruise lines for its ability to deliver your family the cleanest air possible. Also, while portable units are confined to the rooms that they are placed in, the REME HALO® purifies your entire home without taking up any living space by integrating into your HVAC system.
You can rest assured that Master Tech Service Corp. is using every precaution available before entering your home. A few extra steps our technicians are taking are:
