What to Do to Help Your Air Conditioner
Not everything you do for your air conditioner has to be high stress or high cost. These are a few simple things you can do to improve the way your air conditioning system runs.
Make Sure Your Vents Are Unblocked
It’s important to make sure that your home’s vents are completely unblocked. Sometimes, you can accidentally block a vent during a mild time of year. This is when you should take a walk around your home to make sure that all the vents are unblocked. Take note of the things like paintings, furniture, or posters that can potentially block any of the vents in your home.
Close Your Doors and Windows
Make sure that you close and insulate your windows and doors. Your windows and doors should be completely shut and your home should be properly insulated to keep the cool air inside and the warmth outdoors. If you’re having trouble determining if you have the proper amount of insulation in your home, our professionals can consult with you on this.
Clean Around the Outdoor Unit
Make sure your outdoor unit is cleaned and ready to run. If there are any leaves or other debris in your outdoor unit, then it’s important to clean this system and make sure it’s ready to perform.
Make Sure Your Heat-Burning Appliances Are Off
Summer is the time of year when you might want to wait until the evening to run your dryer or do any type of baking. These activities increase the internal temperature of your home and will make your air conditioner work much harder to no avail. If you’d like to save yourself time, money, and improve your comfort along the way, we recommend scheduling these activities after sunset.
Choose a Mild Temperature
What’s going to help you more than anything else is choosing a mild temperature for your home’s thermostat. We know that it’s easy to get into your home, notice that it’s hot, and then choose a chilly temperature on your thermostat. This isn’t wise though. In reality, the freezing cold temperature that you choose isn’t actually going to be a temperature you’re satisfied with. If your home actually reaches that temperature, it’s likely that you’ll be too cold with it. Not only this, but it will typically take an incredibly long time to reach this point. It’s better to choose a mild temperature.
