How to Avoid Expensive AC Repairs

August 18, 2015

When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Phoenix, chances are that you might find yourself daydreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you come inside from a long day. Of course for some homeowners, the unfortunate reality is that they arrive home with a broken air conditioner and now require an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly endless, steamy days without maxing out your air conditioner? 

  1. Reduce use of appliances that make heat. Of course you can’t completely stop using your oven and stove, but being mindful of their uses might help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during the warmest parts of the day as your air conditioner will most likely already be working hard to keep your home cool.

  2. Keep your blinds and shades closed. Windows can let in a great deal of heat if your window coverings aren’t used, and considering the temperatures in Phoenix, your home can warm up awfully quickly. If you’re heading to work or are just away from your home for a few hours, make sure to keep your blinds and shades closed to keep any excess heat out.

  3. Use fans. While fans don’t actually change air temperature, they do circulate air and help ensure your home is feeling comfortable. However, remember to turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being occupied since they don’t reduce the air temperature.

Even as it may seem like the warmest days in Phoenix are ahead, Bob Brown Service Experts is here to make certain that you can relax comfortably in your home. While AC repair can sometimes be tough to avoid, there are tips you can employ to keep cool as summer slowly begins to wind-down.
