The summer season seems to extend further than most here in Las Vegas. Which means, we have to rely on our AC for much longer to get us through these sweltering summer days. It’s no secret that keeping your home cool during the summer can cost a pretty penny, but when you are taking a few steps, you can not only feel cool but also keep your AC as efficient as possible while doing it. Hal Mechanical is here to talk about what temperature is cool but efficient and how you can stay comfortable this summer.
What is a Comfortable & Efficient Indoor Temperature?
You can still feel comfortable even when the temperature outside is over 100 degrees without your AC running around the clock to get you there. Studies show that when you have your thermostat set at 78 degrees, you are going to achieve this elusive perfect balance between comfort and efficiency. This may be a couple degrees higher than you are used to, but when you follow a couple tips and tricks, your home will feel cooler than you think.
Use Ceiling Fans in Summer
If you don’t have ceiling fans installed in your home, consider it. They can decrease the discomfort only summer can bring considerably. Your room can feel up to 5 degrees cooler than it actually is when you have a fan that is moving and circulating the air around you. If you don’t have ceiling fans, there are several other fan options that can work to cool things off.
Avoid Heating Up Your Home with Appliances
There are definitely a few appliances in your home that can contribute to raising the temperature of your home. Avoid cooking in your oven during the summer. You can cook using a grill or cooktop to prepare your food and they won’t heat your house up like the oven will. Try hanging your clothes out to dry as your dryer also generates heat while it is running too. And while you may not know it, your dishwasher can even heat up your home. Only run your dishwasher when you have a full load of dishes that need to be cleaned.
Is an Air Conditioning Tune Up Worth It?
Homeowners often discount how important AC maintenance is. Without it, your AC cannot work efficiently. Not only will any small repairs needed get taken care of during a routine maintenance appointment, but your entire unit will also get thoroughly cleaned as well. There are many working parts that need to be lubricated and dialed in for your system to work efficiently.
