Can your home and yard handle the summertime heat and humidity? Don’t neglect certain tasks that will protect your home and let you enjoy it to the fullest when summer is here. Here’s how you can get your NoCo home ready for summer!
Keep It Cool
Get your A/C system serviced professionally
Get you A/C checked out before it starts to get hot. Even if your system is relatively new, you want to get your heating and cooling system maintained at the change of seasons. And, this preventative service can help you avoid any emergency problems.
Sign up for a yearly maintenance contract with a HVAC company
Having a service contract with a cooling and heating company means that they will reach out to you before the change of every season. That way your system will get serviced at the appropriate time. Plus, if you do have any emergencies in the middle of the season, your service call will be a priority and move to the top of their list. Email me for a list of recommendations.
Clear away debris around your outside air conditioning unit
Make sure you don’t have shrubs, weeds or other growth too close to your unit. You want it to work properly and be as efficient as possible.
Clean and replace your unit’s air filters
Don’t forget to do this and stick to your manufacturer’s recommendations. Your A/C unit will be working in overdrive to keep you cool, so do your part to make it work effectively. And, you can order air filters online to keep it simple and easy.
Go shopping for portable or window A/C units (or even fans)
Not every home has central A/C; or maybe some of your rooms are more stifling than others. You might be surprised to see how many more (and improved) options are out there to help keep your home cool over the summer… oscillating fans, ceiling fans, attic fans, window A/C units and portable A/C ones. And many are more energy efficient and less noisy!
