How to Avoid Expensive AC Repairs

August 18, 2015

When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Cleveland, chances are that you may find yourself dreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you get inside from doing yardwork. Of course for some homeowners, the unfortunate reality is that they arrive home with a busted air conditioner and now need an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly never-ending, scorching days without maxing out your air conditioner? 

  1. Lessen your 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 can help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during the hottest part 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 an enormous amount of heat if your window coverings aren’t used, and considering the temperatures in Cleveland, your home can warm up awfully 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 excess heat out.

  3. Utilize fans. While fans don’t actually change air temperature, they do circulate air and help make certain your home is feeling comfortable. However, make sure you turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being utilized since they don’t reduce the air temperature.
