Ways to keep your home cooler this summer

Summer is just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about ways to stay comfortable when the temperature rises. Prescott Air Conditioning shares tips on some energy-efficient ways to keep your Prescott home cool in the hotter months.

Have an air conditioning tune-up
Have your unit professionally inspected and cleaned to keep it running effectively.

Check your filters
Make sure you change your filters every one to two months to make sure they aren’t full of air-flow preventing debris.

Add insulation
Insulation not only keeps your house warmer in the winter, but also keeps things cooler in the summer.

Keep the sun out
Block out the sun with curtains, shades, and trees. Avoid having the sun shining directly into your house during peak sunlight hours.

Use a ceiling fan
A nice breeze from your ceiling fan is much faster at cooling off a room than an air conditioning unit. Avoid using the ventilating fans in your bathroom and kitchen, though, as these can pull cool air out of your house!

Let the air flow
Open your windows during the cooler parts of the day so that you can turn your air conditioning off completely during the night. You may enjoy better sleep knowing that at least eight hours of the day your unit won’t be adding to your energy costs.

Dial up the thermostat
Turn up the temperature by just a few degrees during the day to save energy. When you’re away from the house, you can turn it up a little bit more.

Don’t crank the air conditioner
No matter how cold you set the thermostat to, the air conditioning unit needs time to cool down your house. Overworking your unit and setting it too far below the manufacturer’s recommendations can actually damage it!

Prescott Air Conditioning wants to help you keep your cool this summer. Taking note of energy-efficient tips will help you do just that. To schedule an air conditioning tune-up for your Prescott home, call us today at 928-308-1254.

5 out of 5 stars Rich and Brenda showed up within an hour of us contacting them, assessed the problem with our furnace, had the broken part on hand (!!! It's a 26 year old furnace!!!). They were extremely friendly, professional, explanatory and obviously care about the work they do. We had quite a few problems, and the 2 other HVAC folks said "just replace the thing" and took a service fee. While Rich tended to agree that it needs replacing, he made sure he got the unit working, inspected and was confident in its safety as a stop gap. Could not recommend them more. It's quite rare to get such thorough, professional.

5 out of 5 stars Brenda and Rich were very helpful. I called and left a message at 10 am on a Saturday, they called back an hour later, and we had our ac up and running by noon that day. Fast, friendly, easy to schedule and reasonably priced. As a local in Prescott I highly recommend them.
