Cooling your home shouldn’t be as difficult or expensive as you think. If you’re lucky enough to build your home from the ground-up, there are a variety of ways to reduce heat, including regular air conditioning service. Working with an existing home isn’t as tough, either.
Experts at Bartlett Heating & Air Conditioning know a myriad of ways that you can modify the temperature of your home with existing air conditioning service and tips. The best strategy for cooling your home is attacking heat on all fronts.
Here are some tips that can make your strategy work:
Maintaining Your Air Conditioning System
Unless your system is broken and more than ten years old, there is no need to purchase a new system. You can simply change or clean filters monthly. Having a maintenance checkup every few months for leaks, damage, and debris inside the system can also conserve the energy you need to cool your home. A professional air conditioning service can check your system and give you expert advice on the best strategy for cooling your home.
Attacking the Problem From All Sides
When your home is cooled by factors other than your AC system, the latter does less work to maintain the optimal temperature and you have lower electric bills. Use as much open air ventilation as you can, especially when the cold from the air conditioning is gone. Open your windows during the evenings when the night is cooler and then trap the cold air in the early morning by closing windows. Your savings would almost be as significant as doing regular air conditioning service.
You can change the outer paint of your walls and roof to a lighter color so as to reflect sunlight and heat. Adding insulation under your roof and inside your drywall can help keep the heat out and maintain the coolness in your home.
