How to Avoid Expensive AC Repairs

August 18, 2015

When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Haltom City, chances are that you might find yourself dreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you get inside from doing yardwork. Of course for some homeowners, the unfortunate 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 make 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 probably 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 taken advantage of, and considering the temperatures in Haltom City, your home can warm up pretty 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. Take advantage of fans. While fans don’t actually affect air temperature, they do circulate air and help keep your home feeling comfortable. However, remember to turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being occupied since they don’t lower the air temperature.

Even as it may seem like the steamiest days in Haltom City are ahead, Stark Services is here to ensure that you can relax comfortably in your home. While AC repair can sometimes be tough to avoid, there are steps you can take to keep cool as summer slowly begins to wind-down.
