How to Avoid Expensive AC Repairs

August 18, 2015

When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Jackson, chances are that you might find yourself fantasizing about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you get inside from doing yardwork. Of course for some homeowners, the sad 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, scorching days without maxing out your air conditioner? 

  1. Lessen your use of appliances that create heat. Of course you can’t completely discontinue the use of your oven and stove, but being mindful of their uses might help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during peak temperatures as your air conditioner will more than 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 used, and considering the temperatures in Jackson, your home can warm up very 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. Utilize fans. While fans don’t actually change air temperature, they do circulate air and help keep your home feeling comfortable. However, make sure you turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being occupied since they don’t reduce the air temperature.
