How to Avoid Expensive AC Repairs

August 18, 2015

When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Alliance, chances are that you might find yourself fantasizing about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you walk in the door from work. Of course for some homeowners, the unfortunate reality is that they arrive home with a busted air conditioner and now require an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly unending, scorching days without maxing out your air conditioner? 

  1. Lessen your 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 peak temperatures as your air conditioner will most likely 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 Alliance, your home can warm up pretty quickly. If you’re heading to work or are just away from your home for a few hours, make sure to keep your blinds and shades closed to keep any extra heat out.

  3. Take advantage of fans. While fans don’t actually alter air temperature, they do circulate air and help make certain your home is feeling comfortable. However, make sure you turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being utilized since they don’t decrease the air temperature.
