Summer Air Conditioning Tips
What are some A/C tips for summer?
The initial goal should be to prepare your air conditioning system well in advance of that first heat wave. Turning your thermostat to A/C without doing preventative maintenance could potentially cause issues down the road for air conditioning efficiency.
Sign up for a yearly maintenance plan which ensures that your heating and air conditioning is thoroughly inspected prior to the first heat wave or cold snap. A bi-annual check-up definitely helps to lower your power bill, ensures peak performance, provide longer equipment life and fewer emergency repairs.
Remember to check and replace those air filters on a regular basis. Generally, every 90 days, but it could also be dependent on where your home is located (ex. dusty, dry climate), if you have pets and the age of the HVAC equipment.
Don’t forget to close windows, doors and blinds to keep out excess heat. Remember to check for any air leaks as well.
Take the heat out of the kitchen. The summer months are the perfect time for outdoor grilling and using small countertop appliances in lieu of using your stove or oven to cook.
Remember to turn off lights when you are not in a room. According to Energy.gov all lightbulbs have a nominal or rated operating life, which is affected by how many times they are turned on and off. The more often they are switched on and off, the lower their operating life.
