How You Can Prep Your Home During the Summer

With the summer season on the rise, it’s time to prepare your home for the change in weather. Don’t know where to start? Let us help guide you through it! In this guide, we will provide you with some useful tips on how you can lower your monthly utility bill, get your home in shape and keep your HVAC running smoothly.

Here’s how you can prep your home during the summer.

Schedule a Check-Up For You HVAC system

Before the season starts, make sure that your home air conditioners are running smoothly. Replacing your HVAC system can cost a pretty penny when you neglect it. So, be sure to have your home service professional visit for an annual check-up to make sure your air conditioners are running properly and efficiently.

Regularly Replace Air Filters

Having your air filters regularly replaced will help keep your vents clean and clear. This will ensure that there will be no large particles or dirt that will prevent your AC from working properly. It is also important to keep your main unit clean and free of any dirt build-ups.

Set Your AC to 78 During the Day

To help keep your bills low, try leaving your air conditioning at an average 78 during the day while you’re out running errands. During the night time, leave your windows open for a cool breeze to flow in. This is the most cost-efficient way to stay cool without a shocking electricity bill at the end of the month.

Switch Ceiling Fan to Counter Clockwise

Consider changing your ceiling fan rotation to the opposite direction. This will allow you to keep the heat at bay while getting a cool motion throughout the room.
