The hot summer months in Kernersville, North Carolina, can create sweltering conditions, with temperatures spiking up to 90 degrees or more. Fortunately, with a few simple tips, you can comfortably beat the heat. Here are a few ways to keep your home cool and family comfortable this summer.
Maintain Your Air Conditioner
The simplest way to make sure that your house stays cool this summer is to maintain your air conditioner with the help of a service professional. It’s not too late to call an air-conditioner expert in your area for a heat pump tune-up for cooling and heating.
Your air conditioning technician will thoroughly investigate your system to make sure everything is in working order. After inspecting your compressor coil, condenser coil, blower motor, and other crucial parts, your service tech can provide a summary of your system, including any needed repairs as well as easy maintenance tips like regularly changing your air filter.
Block Out the Sunlight
If your house has a lot of windows and is exposed to direct sunlight for most of the day, it can make the interior of your home noticeably warmer. To keep your house cool this summer, try to limit how much sunlight enters your home.
To prevent the sunlight from entering through your windows during the day, keep your curtains and blinds closed. Blocking ultraviolet light keeps the inside of your house much cooler and your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard.
Cool Off With Fans
Using ceiling fans is another smart way to keep you cool and comfortable during the summer. Fans will help the air circulation in your home creating a windchill against your skin making it feel more comfortable. Ceiling fans cool people, not rooms, so when you leave the room, turn the fan off.
If you’re interested in having your air conditioner or heat pump serviced, call the experts at Air Treatment Inc. at (336) 740-9895. We’ll make sure your system is running efficiently so it can keep you and your family cool through the rest of summer.
