Do you know the best HVAC summer settings to help get your AC through the hot months? Temperature is just one way to protect your HVAC system when the weather gets hot. To keep your equipment from working overtime this 4th of July, we’ve put together a list of best HVAC practices for summer.

Give it a Break with Ceiling Fans

You rely on your air conditioner to keep your home cool in the summer, but you can give it a boost by turning on those ceiling fans. Make sure they’re rotating counterclockwise, and you’ll create a cooling effect in the rooms that have fans. That extra cooling will help take the pressure off your AC, so it doesn’t have to do all the work.

Give in and Buy That Smart Thermostat

Thermostat technology has come a long way! Investing in a programmable or smart thermostat can save you money on your energy bills while helping take some of the burden off your HVAC system. Automated settings mean more consistent temperatures without extreme swings from manual resets. The best HVAC summer settings keep your home cool when you’re there and a little warmer when you’re not. Your AC will thank you.

Give Yourself Breathing Room with a Clean Air Filter

Cleaner indoor air is just an air filter away. A clean filter can also help save your HVAC system this summer. When the heat is on outside, the AC keeps your home cool if you protect it by making sure the filter isn’t dirty or clogged. Change it at least several times a year to help keep the air flowing and the AC running.  

A broken-down air conditioner is not what you want to face this 4th of July. For more ideas to keep it humming along and for more best HVAC summer practices, contact Wilson’s Refrigeration and Air today.
