With summer right around the corner, it’s time to start preparing your home to beat the summer heat. You and your family will be grateful you prepared early when your home is capable of reducing the heat during the hot days of summer. Keep your home cool with these tips and suggestions.
Change the Air Filters
Changing the filters in your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system will help your existing air conditioning system run more efficiently during the summer. Filters should be changed on a regular basis, usually monthly. However, changing them in between the seasons is a great time to get back into the habit, especially if you haven’t changed them in a while.
Test the Air Conditioning System
Before the summer heat arrives, test the air conditioning system to ensure that it is actually working. HVAC systems can have a tendency to break down over the seasons when they’re not being used. Make sure you’re not caught in the worst heat without the air conditioning and test your system beforehand.
Add Window and Door Screens
Adding screens to your doors and windows can be a great way to introduce better airflow throughout the home when the temperatures aren’t too hot. This can help you save money during cooler summer days, get a natural breeze, and enjoy the smells of summer.
Use Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans work hand-in-hand with existing HVAC systems. They help to circulate the cool air throughout the rooms of the home, helping the system to work more efficiently in the areas of the home that are the used most during the summer.
Hire a Specialist
If your air conditioning system doesn’t work or you want to optimize your existing system for the summer, hiring a specialist can help you to rest assured that your home will be ready for the summer. If you end up needing to hire a specialist, it will be better to find one before the summer when the demand for HVAC specialists will be very high.
