How to Avoid Expensive AC Repairs

August 18, 2015

When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Medina, chances are that you could find yourself fantasizing about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you come inside from a long day. Of course for some homeowners, the harsh reality is that they arrive home with a non-working air conditioner and now need an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly never-ending, sweltering days without maxing out your air conditioner? 

  1. Reduce use of appliances that generate heat. Of course you can’t completely stop using 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 used, and considering the temperatures in Medina, 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 unnecessary heat out.

  3. Take advantage of fans. While fans don’t actually alter air temperature, they do circulate air and help ensure your home is feeling comfortable. However, remember to turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being used since they don’t lower the air temperature.
