How to Avoid Expensive AC Repairs

August 18, 2015

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

  1. Reduce use of appliances that make heat. Of course you can’t completely quit using 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 most likely 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 utilized, and considering the temperatures in Dallas, your home can warm up pretty quickly. If you’re heading to work or are just gone for a few hours, make sure to keep your blinds and shades closed to keep any excess heat out.

  3. Use fans. While fans don’t actually affect 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 occupied since they don’t reduce the air temperature.
