How to Avoid Expensive AC Repairs

August 18, 2015

When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Ravenna, chances are that you might 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 harsh reality is that they arrive home with a non-working air conditioner and now require an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly unending, scorching days without maxing out your air conditioner? 

  1. Lessen your use of appliances that generate 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 most likely already be working hard to keep your home cool.

  2. Keep your blinds and shades closed. Windows can let in an enormous amount of heat if your window coverings aren’t utilized, and considering the temperatures in Ravenna, your home can warm up awfully 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. Take advantage of fans. While fans don’t actually affect air temperature, they do circulate air and help ensure your home is feeling comfortable. However, remember to turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being utilized since they don’t lower the air temperature.
