5 Tips to Minimize Strain on your HVAC System During the Summer

5-Tips-to-minimize-strain-on-your-HVAC-system-during-the-summer

It is a constant fight with the thermostat, figuring out how to keep your air at a comfortable yet affordable temperature.  Not only does summer bring a surge in energy cost, but it can also cause a higher risk of problems and even full breakdowns. Here are some tips you can try to help avoid that.

 

Change Your Air Filter

Aside from service visits, you should check your air filter at least once a month. When the air filter gets clogged, that significantly reduces efficiency and makes your system work harder, which shortens its lifespan.

 

Smart Thermostats

During the summer months, you might be out of your home for hours of the day, but struggle to give your AC a break. No one wants to come home after being in the hot Texas heat to a warm home. Thanks to current technology, you can get a smart thermostat today and control the AC mobile. That way you aren’t blasting your air conditioning when you aren’t home, but you can still turn it on from your phone before you get home!

 

Cut Down on the Heat you Use Inside Your Home

There are many ways you can pull back on your heat use to help reduce stress on your AC unit. Using quality windows or blinds can help to keep heat from circulating into your house, just make sure to close the blinds when you are out of the house! Also, summer is a great time to grill! This can remove the heat from cooking in over or on pans to outside during cooler parts of the day of course.

 

Get an Attic Fan

Do you have an attic in your house? You may not realize that your attic can be a major cause for heat being allowed to leak into your home. When your attic heats up, that heat gets trapped and leaked into the rest of your home, making your AC work overtime. Attic fans can be a relatively inexpensive way to save bundles of money on your electricity bill and help your HVAC unit take a break.
