How to Avoid Expensive AC Repairs

August 18, 2015

When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Provo, chances are that you may find yourself daydreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you walk in the door from work. Of course for some homeowners, the unfortunate reality is that they arrive home with a broken air conditioner and now need an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly endless, steamy days without maxing out your air conditioner? 

  1. Lessen your use of appliances that generate heat. Of course you can’t completely quit using your oven and stove, but being mindful of their uses can help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during the warmest parts of the day as your air conditioner will probably already be working hard to keep your home cool.

  2. Keep your blinds and shades closed. Windows can let in a lot of heat if your window coverings aren’t taken advantage of, and considering the temperatures in Provo, your home can warm up very quickly. If you’re heading to work or are just gone 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 alter 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 decrease the air temperature.
