How to Avoid Expensive AC Repairs

August 18, 2015

When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Saint Charles, chances are that you may find yourself daydreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you come inside from a long day. Of course for some homeowners, the sad reality is that they arrive home with a busted air conditioner and now must deal with an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly endless, scorching days without maxing out your air conditioner? 

  1. Decrease use of appliances that make heat. Of course you can’t completely discontinue the use of your oven and stove, but being mindful of their uses may 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 a great deal of heat if your window coverings aren’t taken advantage of, and considering the temperatures in Saint Charles, 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 unnecessary heat out.

  3. Use fans. While fans don’t actually change air temperature, they do circulate air and help make certain your home is feeling comfortable. However, remember to turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being occupied since they don’t decrease the air temperature.
