Everything is bigger in Texas, and unfortunately, that includes the heat and humidity of summer too. Temperatures can sore into the triple digits in summer weather, and with high relative humidity levels, your home can feel like a steaming jungle if you let it. A reliable air conditioner is vital to keeping our households comfortable during the summer months.
A good boost to your system now – in the form of upgrades or maintenance – can help your system survive the summer in fighting shape. Addressing such issues in the spring means your system will be ready to go when you need it to and perform effectively all summer long. How can you do that? We’ve provided a few tips below.
Get Your System Maintained
A maintenance session is highly recommended for air conditioning systems at least once a year, in the spring before the weather gets too hot. It’s a tune-up for your system, giving the technician a chance to look the system over and check for any problems. In the event of small issues, such as loose bolts, the technician can fix them as part of the maintenance session. If more serious repairs are needed, a session can be scheduled immediately.
Not only do the results help you anticipate repair issues and address them before they cause a breakdown in the middle of a summer heatwave, but addressing those little problems helps the air conditioner perform more efficiently: lowering the monthly costs of operating them in the bargain. That can save you a great deal in monthly costs, especially during the summer.
Treat Humidity the Right Way
High humidity levels are a constant problem in our neck of the woods. Air conditioners can deal with the issue since lowering the temperature lowers humidity levels by default., But they address the problem crudely at best, and because they’re not set up for such duties, the effort can great a great deal of strain and wasted energy. A whole-house dehumidifier, on the other hand, can address the issue the right way: getting rid of that awful muggy feeling in your home while easing the load on your air conditioner.
Need a New Thermostat?
Thermostats act as the control mechanism for your air conditioner, and most are designed to last for decades or more. The only drawback to such longevity is that comes with older thermostats often miss out on the exciting innovations that newer thermostats provide.
Top-of-the-line thermostats can make adjustments to your schedule based on your cooling habits based on your schedule, helping to cut the costs of running the home. Other units can stay connected to your phone via your home’s wireless signal, allowing you to program it from anywhere in the world with the simple touch of a button. That can cut down on costs considerably, as well as letting you enjoy any summer vacations you might take without worrying about whether you left the AC running.
