How to Avoid Expensive AC Repairs

August 18, 2015

When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Windsor, chances are that you could find yourself daydreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you get inside from doing yardwork. Of course for some homeowners, the sad reality is that they arrive home with a non-working air conditioner and now require an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly endless, sweltering days without maxing out your air conditioner? 

  1. Decrease use of appliances that create heat. Of course you can’t completely quit using your oven and stove, but being mindful of their uses may help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during the hottest part of the day as your air conditioner will probably already be working hard to keep your home cool.

  2. Keep your blinds and shades closed. Windows can let in a great deal of heat if your window coverings aren’t taken advantage of, and considering the temperatures in Windsor, your home can warm up pretty quickly. If you’re heading to work or are just gone for a few hours, make sure to keep your blinds and shades closed to keep any extra heat out.

  3. Utilize fans. While fans don’t actually alter air temperature, they do circulate air and help keep your home feeling comfortable. However, ensure you turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being utilized since they don’t reduce the air temperature.
