Top Cooling Tips for a Comfortable Summer


As the summer heat intensifies, keeping your home cool and comfortable becomes a top priority. Wilson Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc offers licensed Air Conditioning services to help you beat the heat. In this article, we’ll share some valuable tips to ensure your air conditioning unit runs efficiently and effectively throughout the season.

Maintain Your AC Unit

  1. Schedule regular maintenance checks with a professional HVAC technician. They will clean the unit, replace filters, and identify any potential issues before they escalate.
  2. Clean or replace air filters every 1-3 months. Clogged filters restrict airflow and reduce efficiency, causing your AC to work harder and consume more energy.
  3. Clear debris, plants, or objects that may be obstructing the outdoor unit’s airflow.

Optimize Energy Efficiency

  • Invest in a programmable thermostat to automatically adjust temperatures when you’re away or sleeping, reducing energy consumption.
  • Use ceiling fans in conjunction with your AC. Fans create a wind-chill effect, allowing you to raise the thermostat a few degrees without compromising comfort.
  • Seal air leaks around windows, doors, and other openings to prevent cool air from escaping and warm air from entering.

Smart Cooling Practices

  1. Close blinds or curtains during the day to block direct sunlight, reducing the heat transfer into your home.
  2. Cook outdoors or use the microwave instead of the oven to minimize indoor heat generation.
  3. Schedule energy-intensive tasks like laundry or dishwashing during cooler parts of the day.

Consider Upgrading

If your AC unit is over 10 years old, it may be time to consider a replacement. Newer models are more energy-efficient, environmentally friendly, and can save you money on utility bills in the long run.
