Your home’s heating and air conditioning system has a hard job to handle during these steamy North Carolina summers. It has to work almost continuously to keep things cool and comfortable. Have you ever considered what you might be able to do to lessen the load placed on your home’s air conditioner? Probably not! But we are here to share a few super easy steps you can take to increase your HVAC’s energy efficiency this summer.
Using ceiling fans can make it feel cooler in the room. While they may not lower the temperature, the breeze makes it seem like the temp is dropping, so you won’t have to have your thermostat turned down as much as you would without a fan going. Keep in mind that, unlike your AC, there is no need to run the fan if you are not in the room.
The sun blaring in through the windows can really heat up the room. By covering up the windows with curtains, shutters, or blinds, you can keep the temperature in the room lower. This, in turn, lessens the load on your air conditioner. In addition to traditional coverings, there are also options like solar shades that can reduce the impact the sun has on your indoor temperature without blocking the outside view.
Ensuring your air conditioning is running as efficiently as possible is as simple as signing up for a professional maintenance agreement. When you have an agreement in place with the right company, you can trust your HVAC is getting the checkups and repairs it needs to function optimally.
