Summer is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about preparing your home for the hot weather. California summers can be hot, so spending more time indoors is a given. By taking the time to prepare now you can avoid any last-minute scrambling when the weather gets warm.
The best way to ensure your air conditioning unit runs smoothly is to schedule a maintenance check before the heat hits. By having a professional come to service your system you will rest assured that it’s working the best it can during the hot summer months. This is especially important if your AC wasn’t running well last summer. If it’s time for a new air conditioner, don’t wait until the last minute to get it.
A great way to face the sunny summer of Southern California is to utilize solar power for energy. At Econo Air we offer the M Performance Solar Hybrid System. This system is more environmentally friendly, but it can also help you save money on your energy bills. A home system operated by solar power is more reliable and durable than one run solely on electricity. If your home doesn’t solely rely on electricity you can stay with power should the electricity go out. It can help bring peace of mind knowing you, your family, and your home doesn't have to rely on the city’s grid.
Indoor Air Quality
As the heat continues to rise we see ourselves spending more time inside, which means we need to assure the air we breathe inside is clean and healthy. Before summer gets too unbearable make sure you’re stocked up on air filters for your home’s HVAC system. A dirty filter allows dust and dander to stay in the air and will lead to overworking your home’s air conditioning unit. Air has a harder time passing through full filters, causing your air conditioner to overcompensate.
Another tip when it comes to indoor air quality is to keep your home well ventilated. This will help improve the air circulation and keep you cooler. This may look like adding a fan to a room or leaving your windows open during the day.
