Easy Ways to Get your Home Ready for the Summer Heat
Wheeler Air offers Mesa residents tips for keeping cool in the AZ sun.
Mesa, Arizona (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
Mesa residents are looking towards triple digit temperatures this summer, and preparing for the next several months of hot weather. Arizonans know the value of keeping their homes cool during the summer, but they also know that it often comes at a high cost. Everyone is looking for more ways to save money in this economy as well as more ways to be efficient. Luckily people can do both by doing the following:
Schedule an air conditioning maintenance check. Technicians can look for any issues that may impact a unit’s efficiency as well as its ability to work altogether. If something is broken or reaching the end of its life cycle, consider scheduling Mesa air conditioning repair services as soon as possible as many companies get overwhelmed once the summer officially hits. Home owners can avoid long wait times and hot nights by planning ahead.
- Invest in sun screens for the outside of the home or curtains for the inside of the home. Sun screens help reduce the amount of heat that comes through windows and the impact can be significant for both comfort levels and electricity bills. To make the most of any budget, add sun screens to windows that get the most sun exposure or invest in curtains for the inside of the home.
- Add shade to areas of the home that get a lot of sun. Shade trees or garden structures like pergolas can help add appeal to any yard and may help keep homes a little cooler during the hottest times of the day.
- Turn on ceiling fans in the most-used rooms. Make sure they are rotating counterclockwise to push the cool air down. Be sure to turn them off when the room isn’t in use.
