Say Goodbye To The Summer Sweat

Say Goodbye To The Summer Sweat

Preparing your home for the heat of summer will help you to lessen your utility bills, reduce wear on the cooling system, and keep the home cooler for longer periods of time. Try a few of these ten simple ways to prepare your home for the summer heat.

Calling your local HVAC repair company to maintain your cooling system before summer will help reduce the utility bills while also extending the life of the entire cooling system.

Depending how many filters your cooling system has, change them all at the beginning of the summer season. Cleaner filter will require less effort on the HVAC system, allowing it to work more efficiently.

During cooler summer nights, you will want to give the cooling system a rest and open the windows. Be sure the screens are clean and repaired to keep out unwanted bugs.

One ceiling fan can significantly reduce the indoor air temperature and make it more comfortable inside. Consider buying ones for the hottest rooms in the house.

With attic temperatures soaring above 100 degrees at the hottest time of day, a new attic fan can allow that air to escape and cool the house naturally.

Remove any debris that is trapped along the outside of the cooling system fan. Call your local HVAC repair company to open the unit if leaves, twigs, or trash is trapped inside the fan coils.

Cracks around windows and doors can allow hot air in, and also all that treated cooler air out. Stop throwing away money on high utility bills and seal those cracks with the appropriate product.

Before the cooling system turns on this season, have the entire air duct system scrubbed clean of all allergens and dirt particles.

Purchase darker curtains to keep sunlight out, and close them during the hottest time of the day to keep that room from heating up too quickly.

Darkening shades are designed to allow some light into the room, but reflect the majority of that heated sunlight back outside. The end result is a cooler room, requiring the cooling system to run less often.
