Our Tips to Keep Cool Made the News!
Summer is here, and Texas residents are dealing with extremely high temperatures. With this in mind, C. Woods Company was recently featured on a local news program, sharing tips to help homeowners keep cool this summer. Read on to learn the simple tips and tricks to stay cool that were given in the news.
Set the Right Temperature
To keep the house cool this time of year, the best temperature to set the thermostat at is between 70 to 76 degrees. This keeps the home a comfortable escape from the high temperatures outside.
Many suggest that homeowners should turn off their air conditioners before leaving the house, but that’s not the case. By doing this, homeowners will come home to a sweltering house that will take hours to achieve the desired temperature again. Instead, turn up the temperature by a few degrees but leave the AC on before leaving the house.
Don’t Forget About Maintenance
Issues with the air conditioning this summer could result from neglecting maintenance. Many important maintenance tasks allow the AC to continue working effectively. Some of these tasks are:
- Change the air filter
- Clean the evaporator and condenser coils
- Clean and realign bent fins
- Check refrigerant levels
- Check the thermostat’s accuracy
Having AC maintenance done once or twice a year, and changing air filters at least every three months, will help improve the unit's power. It will also increase the AC system’s longevity and efficiency, helping with the utility bills.
