Your home’s air conditioning system is likely working full force around the clock this time of year, keeping you and your family comfortable. If you’re hosting a 4th of July get-together, here are a few tips to ensure your guests are comfortable inside while reducing the strain on your cooling system.
Use Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans help keep air circulating and provide an easy way to quickly cool down indoors. Turn on your ceiling fans to keep each room of your house feeling up to four degrees cooler. This way you can avoid adjusting your smart thermostat and ceiling fans are a great way to be more energy efficient. Remember to turn off ceiling fans running in any empty rooms.
Close the Blinds
Whether you’re hosting guests inside or outside, blocking out the sunlight from heating up your home’s interior is a great way to keep guests happy and reduce your utility bills. Draw blinds, close sliding glass doors, shutters, and drapes to keep the heat out.
Use Heat Generating Appliances Less
The 4th of July holiday weekend is a wonderful time to fire up the outdoor grill instead of cooking indoors. You’d probably be surprised how much heat ovens, clothes dryers, and dishwashers emit as they run. Try to avoid using these appliances during daytime hours. Run full loads of dishes and laundry in the evening. This will decrease wear and tear on your appliances, keep your home cooler, and decrease energy usage.
Maintain Your AC
You don’t want to have your AC breakdown during July 4th celebrations nor anytime during Arizona’s sweltering summer. You can help keep mechanical and electrical issues in check by having your system properly serviced. Scheduling a twice-yearly air conditioning tune-up and inspection with a trusted local HVAC company can extend the lifespan of your unit and help steer clear of unwanted surprises during the summer. The inspection can alert you to potential issues that can be easily repaired before they turn into expensive problems. Regular tune-ups keep the AC components running smoothly all summer long.
