Summer is just a few weeks away! It’s time to get your home prepared for the change of season in Southern California. Don’t know where to start? We’re here to help.
We’ll provide you with some steps you can take to help possibly lower your monthly electric bills, get your home in shape for the summer heat and keep your HVAC running smoothly all summer long.
- It never fails that air conditioners like to give out during the summer, leaving your home feeling like a personal sauna. Replacing an HVAC system can be costly, so it’s important to have your air conditioning system checked before the summer begins. Contact your local home service professionals to schedule a check up and make sure you’re running efficiently and properly before the heat hits.
- Replacing your air filter regularly will help clear your vents, and make sure that any large debris or particles don’t stop your AC from functioning properly. It’s also important to clean up any dirt around your main unit or exhausts.
- Try changing your ceiling fan rotation to counter clockwise. This will ensure that the heat stays risen and should get a breeze going in any room.
- Southern California is known to have high temperatures during the day and cooler temperatures at night. Try leaving your air conditioning set to 78 during the day while at work, school or running errands, and as the night flows in, leave your windows open to get that cool summer breeze. This is a cost-effective way to stay comfortable without racking up your electric bill.
