It’s time to get your home ready for warmer weather! Summertime is bittersweet here in the Greater Rochester, NY area and we want to help you make the most of it! Prepping your house will help ensure you and your loved ones are able to stay comfortable in your home.
Here’s a list of things you can take care of on your own:
- Replace your furnace filter: Check your filters and replace them if they are dirty. Having a dirty air filter will affect the efficiency of your unit and increase your energy usage. If you keep up with changing your filter, you’ll increase the air quality in your home and save money in the long run. Pets, the number of household occupants and allergies are a few of the things that determine how often your filter should be changed. Make sure you are changing your filter based on the conditions of your home.
- Block direct sunlight: Using curtains and drapes to block direct sunlight from entering your home will help maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
- Air conditioner maintenance: Clear debris and dirt from around your outdoor air conditioning unit. Critters, sticks, leaves and dirt can build up and prevent your A/C from functioning properly. The last thing you want to deal with is a broken air conditioner on a 90°F day.
- Maintain good airflow: For the best air flow, make sure nothing is blocking your vents. Move all curtains, furniture, storage containers and electronics that may be blocking them. You can also use an oscillating fan to circulate cool air in different rooms of your home.
