Summer is still here! When school is just around the corner, but the NY weather is still gorgeous, all we want to do is enjoy the outdoors. And when we come home to relax, we want to be able to enjoy our Suffolk or Nassau County home’s refreshing air conditioning just as much!
In order for your cooling system to operate properly and stay in peak condition, it’s crucial to care for it, whether that’s by yourself, or with the help of an experienced pro, like those at Home Efficiency Experts. Let’s help you enjoy a comfortable and healthy home all summer long!
1. Check Your Thermostat
Do you remember the last time you confirmed the settings on your thermostat? It’s worth checking out, especially if you have kids who could accidentally change the settings without you realizing it.
Some thermostats even have batteries that need to be replaced occasionally—do you know if yours does? It never hurts to take a look, and if you have a smart thermostat, you can even program your summer vacation settings ahead of time.
2. Keep Your System Clean on a Schedule
There are some easy ways to keep your HVAC system running in peak condition! We recommend changing your air filters out a minimum of every 90 days. To maintain optimal indoor air quality, your HVAC filters should be changed every 30 days.
For an additional boost to your home’s health, dedicate time in your schedule to minor cleaning on a monthly basis—or more if you have pets. Wipe vents and registers down with a clean, damp cloth to promote better airflow and cut down on dust circulation. The more often you vacuum, mop, and generally clean the rest of your home, the cleaner and healthier your indoor air will be.
