Enjoy your air conditioner! The main purpose of air conditioning appreciation days is to, well, show appreciation. What does it mean to appreciate something? It means to give it a good rub, like a nice foot massage, and to not feel like you need to take out your AC for a nice meal. The point of this AC holiday is to express gratitude for a technological device that we rely on so much.
What are the ways in which air conditioners assist us? Here are a few things that air conditioners have aided in achieving:
How can we celebrate our air conditioning when it gets too hot out by just turning on your AC? What should we do to celebrate our air conditioning more than just running your conditioner? How can we wisely run your air conditioner when it gets too hot out during festivities, as you are already unknowingly participating in it?
Tips for showing air conditioning appreciation:
Get regular checkups
If you think there is anything wrong with your air conditioner, even before problems arise, trust us to perform a full system inspection. Investing in regular maintenance and checkups shows that your AC deserves the tender loving care it needs.
Change your air filters often
Ensure to replace your air filter regularly, preferably every three months (or more often with a HEPA filter), as a blocked filter will cause your air conditioning system to exert more effort. This can lead to a decrease in the overall lifespan of your AC unit and result in additional expenses.
Give your AC a break
Do you have to work overtime, so you try to avoid doing things indoors during the day that require the oven or cooking, as it will make your house uncomfortably hot until the evening. Additionally, you can cut down on your energy consumption each month by opening the windows to enjoy fresh air and considering leaving the AC off if it’s only 75 degrees outside. Why not give it a break today and not run the air conditioner?
Keep your curtains and blinds closed
By opting to not run continuously throughout the day, this will enable your air conditioner to switch off at regular intervals. This, in turn, aids in keeping the hot air outside and preserving the cold air produced by the AC, thus assisting in insulating your home with this slight additional endeavor.
Shade your home
Planting shade trees around your home can naturally regulate your home’s temperature and reduce your reliance on heating and cooling. If you want to go the extra mile, give it a try.
Set the thermostat to a reasonable temperature
Does your house really need all degrees to be set at 60 for the long summer? Try adjusting from there and setting the temperature to 72 degrees. You’ll notice that keeping your home a little bit warmer will work just fine.
Know when it’s time to call in a professional
When it comes to a new system, nobody wants to abruptly spend money and without fully grasping the whole system, you can easily cause more damage than benefit if you attempt to repair your AC. Ensure that you are aware of your boundaries if you are a passionate do-it-yourselfer, particularly when dealing with your air conditioner because it is indeed accurate that you cannot always mend it on your own.
In brief, if your air conditioner is malfunctioning, contact a professional.
