What You Need to Do in Order to Prepare for the Coming Warming Weather
As summer approaches, you want to make sure your home is ready for the season. Updated insulation, weather stripping, and well-maintained HVAC equipment can all help your home withstand warmer temperatures and keep you comfortable inside. Properly air sealing your home and ensuring that your ducts are clean and free from leaks will improve your cooling performance despite Atlanta’s heat and humidity.
- Have your air conditioner inspected by your HVAC professional. This usually includes a tune-up service that will ensure your unit fared well over a winter’s worth of use. Much like a tune-up for your car, an air conditioning tune-up includes lubrication of moving parts, verifying structural integrity, and checking electrical components.
- During your A/C tune-up, you can have other aspects of your HVAC system inspected. Your ductwork can be full of dust and debris and may even have leaks. Leaky or dirty ducts raise your energy costs, lower the efficiency of your system, and also reduce your indoor air quality.
- Have your HVAC professional give your whole home a close look. The HVAC system includes your home’s walls, windows, and doors. Insulation and proper weatherization will keep your energy usage at appropriate levels, and ensure your home stays comfortably cool.
- You may also want to consider investing in a programmable thermostat. These can change the way you heat and cool your home for increased comfort and increased savings.
