Here are just a few Seasonal Tips to keep your air conditioning running in an efficient way throughout the months of hot temperatures that a Middle Tennessee Summer can bring.
Utilize the fans in your home to create air flow and keep rooms from feeling stagnant. Open the doors to areas you want to keep cool. Allowing air to circulate will lessen the work of your unit, saving it from the damage that comes with overuse. We all want you to get the longest life you can out of this major home appliance.
Block the sun from heating up rooms with proper curtains that allow light where you want it but keep out the heat. You can use blackout curtains in an area that needs it, but these tend to also insulate and may trap heat creating hotspots.
Leaving certain items plugged in but not used generates heat in a room. Check around all your electronics and appliances to feel if there is excess heat being created in small areas. You can also look into a programmable thermostat to help regulate your home.
Also, make sure your fans are rotating so air is pushed down into the room. You can check the vents to make sure each one is fully open in rooms you want to be cooled. A closed vent in a closet or bathroom can make a huge impact on the temperature of the attached rooms.
Getting preventive maintenance is always the ideal thing to do and it helps keep you aware of any issues you may have in the near future. We are always available to discuss unit upgrades and new thermostat options.
