Clean Around the Outdoor Unit
Ensure that your outdoor unit is clean and ready to use. If there are any leaves or other debris in your outdoor unit. Then it’s important to clean this system and make sure it’s ready to perform.
Make Sure Your Heat-Burning Appliances Are Off
Summer is the time of year when you might want to wait until the evening to run your dryer or do any type of baking. These activities increase the internal temperature of your home and will make your air conditioner work much harder to no avail. If you’d like to save yourself time, and money, and improve your comfort along the way, we recommend scheduling these activities after sunset.
Choose a Mild Temperature
What’s going to help you more than anything else is choosing a mild temperature for your home’s thermostat. We know that it’s easy to get into your home, notice that it’s hot, and then choose a chilly temperature on your thermostat. This isn’t wise though. If you choose a freezing cold temperature, it won’t be a temperature that you enjoy. If your home actually reaches that temperature, it’s likely that you’ll be too cold with it. Not only this, but it will typically take an incredibly long time to reach this point. It’s better to choose a mild temperature.
