How To Get Your Home Ready For The Summer
While Summer isn’t here yet, Las Vegas and Phoenix are already feeling the temperature rise. Before the heat officially hits, there are several things you can do to get your home air conditioner ready to be running for most of the day. The first thing you can do is schedule your Spring maintenance appointment with one of our expert techs to be sure your AC unit is running in tip top shape.
Without the help of experts, there are several things you can do yourself to make the summer heat a little less burdensome.
- Clean your system: No, you don’t have to take apart your AC unit, clean it, and put it back together. Leave that to our techs. What you can do is make sure that all rocks, shrubs, leaves/plant debris, etc. are not cluttered around your AC unit. One way to make sure your system is running properly is to clear away any debris that could obstruct the airway.
- Change your air filters: Our techs at Climate Control Experts are more than happy to advise you on what filters work best for your home, and install them. But in between your tune-ups and services, it’s important to keep your filters clean. Dusty and dirty filters can obstruct airflow, and decrease your indoor air quality. Changing your filters every 1-3 months will ensure optimal AC performance, and keep your home’s air free of dust, germs, and allergens.
- Block the sun: Hanging drapes or blinds can help keep your indoor temperature down by blocking the hot sunlight.
- Check your batteries: along with checking your home’s smoke and CO detector batteries, check your thermostat batteries. Making sure your thermostat is functioning properly can save you time and money if your system stops working, and the problem is dead batteries in your thermostat. Climate Control Experts can even advise you about different programmable thermostats, so you won’t have to worry about setting your system at different temperatures for different times of the day, saving you money on your utility bills.
A bi-annual tune-up with Climate Control Experts can make your system run more efficiently, and save you money on your utility bills. Call Climate Control Experts so we can help get your home ready for the summer months coming up.
