How to Avoid Expensive AC Repairs

August 18, 2015

When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in West Palm Beach, chances are that you might find yourself dreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you get inside from doing yardwork. Of course for some homeowners, the unfortunate reality is that they arrive home with a broken air conditioner and now require an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly unending, sweltering days without maxing out your air conditioner? 

  1. Reduce use of appliances that generate heat. Of course you can’t completely discontinue the use of your oven and stove, but being mindful of their uses can help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during the warmest parts 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 an enormous amount of heat if your window coverings aren’t utilized, and considering the temperatures in West Palm Beach, your home can warm up very quickly. If you’re heading to work or are just out of the house for a few hours, make sure to keep your blinds and shades closed to keep any excess heat out.

  3. Use fans. While fans don’t actually affect air temperature, they do circulate air and help make certain your home is feeling comfortable. However, ensure you turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being used since they don’t reduce the air temperature.
