Keep your air conditioner well cleaned and regularly serviced. You should clean your system twice a year if possible. I can remember my father getting up on the roof when I was young, and hosing out the unit. We also had a cover for it during the winter. Also keep the vents clean and dust free, which also helps with asthma and allergies. If your vents are the type that can close, shut them during winter.
Where you live in the world determines how much sun you get each day. Since solar power is dependent on sunlight, you must have a certain amount in order to generate enough power. How much sun you get is also related to where the panels are hung on a structure. Angle, direction and shade are the factors to consider. To work best, solar arrays should face south, at angles ranging from 15 to 40 degrees. How much energy you use can be determined using the following process, which was developed at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

Know the layout of your air conditioning system. If your house has ducts hidden in the walls or roof, you might want to keep on hand a drawing of exactly where these ducts are. Sounds silly I know, but a simple picture hook can create an air leak which is great for cooling the insides of your wall cavities, but at the cost of your comfort.
You should also find out about how ready they were to adapt to new plans or admit any mistakes. By finding out about their work history you will be gaining a greater appreciation of the quality of work they will do for you. Depending on how much effort you are willing to put in, you could talk to the local regulatory body and find out if there have been any proceedings taken against the tradesman. This will give you even greater insight.
Let’s go to a basic level – business cards. Almost everyone has one. Most are run-of-the-mill black lettering on a white background. Take a look at your business. What’s unique about it? For example, if you offer a service, design a business card that shows the money you’ll save your customer if they go with you.
