My House Is Hot in Donna

Instead of waiting in Donna for a problem to come along with your a/c unit, why not avert the problem before it happens? To do so, your ac unit must be maintained, even when there is no trace of trouble. Luckily, each of the following maintenance tasks are simple, economical and quick:

  • Replace the air filter: Indoor air quality, energy efficiency and Cooling potential will {all be unfortunately impacted by a soiled air conditioning unit filter which will put more strain on the motor and blower. These should be typically inspected and switched if needed every month depending on HVAC unit usage, pets and dirt.  To an A/C a dirty filter is like asking you to sprint a marathon while wearing a mask.

  • Survey insulation around the building: The same insulation that keeps the house warm in the winter serves to keep it cool during summer. Survey all of the doors in the house to make certain the weather stripping is still forming a seal, and adjust the thresholds if required to ward off a hole by the base of the exit. Crawlspaces, attics and basements often are causes of air leaks, so Check out all of them for cracks in insulation and add insulation as paramount. For windows with opening upper halves, make sure the top half is secured. This can also pose a security risk and also lets in humidity.

  • Utilize floor and ceiling fans when feasible: An overhead fan can actually make a room to feel multiple degrees cooler, allowing the home owner to up the temperature on the control and diminish AC run time. During the summer months, the fan needs to be set to spin in a counterclockwise direction to drive cooler air down and spawn a breeze effect.

  • Use a programmable or smart thermostat: Programmable and Smart thermostats allow home owners to relish in their preferred cooler climate while at their house, but more particularly they can be arranged to trim air conditioning unit run times when the house is empty. Adjust the thermostat up for workdays and when the home is empty and reduce for weekends and evenings. Home owners will save a remarkable amount on the energy bill by doing this at the same time aware of no striking change. On times when the temperature is well over 90 degrees, set the thermostat at 75 or below. Humidity and heat can develop up immediately inside homes, and it is best not to stress the ac unit as it cycles on.

  • Being aware of sources of heat: Cooking in an oven or on a stovetop regularly or for great number of time, burning many candles and leaving incandescent bulbs running will all add startling quantity of heat to the house. Running numerous appliances simultaneously can also add both humidity and heat to the dwelling. Choosing colder foods for summer such as salads and sandwiches can still bring robust {options}choices} while reducing the temperature. Be sure to only keep the lights on in occupied areas as needed, and consider choosing air fresheners over scented candles during the summer days as well.
