Practical Guide to Keeping Your Home Cool

Thermostat

Summer is when we spend long days outside, coming home to a nice air-conditioned house. Is yours ready to stay cool in the middle of the hot, sunny days? Take a look at our practical guide to keeping your home cool.

Close the Blinds

Closing the blinds or curtains on the south-facing side of your home can help keep it cool during the hottest times of the day. Reducing the amount of heat that comes in through the windows can help keep your whole house cool.

Upgrade Your Thermostat

A programmable or smart thermostat can help you customize your cooling. You can make sure your home is most comfortable when you’re home while using less energy when you’re away.

Maintain Your Air Conditioner

Regular HVAC maintenance is critical to a well-functioning air conditioner, especially during the hot southern summers. Spring service from a licensed technician can help keep your home cool and breakdowns at bay.

Install a Dehumidifier

Our HVAC systems have to fight against the high level of moisture in the air to keep our homes feeling cool in our humid climate. A dehumidifier can bring down the humidity, so your AC doesn’t have to work as hard, and your home feels cooler.

The heat of summer is right around the corner. Instead of coming home to a hot house, talk to your local HVAC dealer for more tips to help keep your home cool in the summer. Contact your nearest McCall’s Supply, Inc. dealer today to find out more.
