The summer season is quickly approaching and many homeowners are packing their bags and going on that long-awaited vacation.
As you’re preparing for vacation and thinking of all the things you need to do like call the dog sitter and ask someone to get your mail, it’s also important that you think about your home’s air conditioning system.
Before you take your summer vacation, you’ll want to be sure your AC system isn’t going to break down while you’re gone. The last thing you want to come home to is a sweltering house and a broken air conditioner in the heat of summer.
The best way to do this is to call the team at Roland Black Heating & Cooling and schedule your annual maintenance check. The Roland Black team will come out to make sure your system is running properly, there are no potential problems and give you peace of mind that your system is ready to keep you cool throughout the summer months.
The second thing you will want to check before you leave for vacation is your thermostat. It may be tempting to turn it completely off while you’re gone away but that actually increases the humidity in your home and can cause microbial growth.
The best practice is to check the forecast for the time you’ll be away and set the air conditioner a few degrees below the average temperature. This will ensure that your air conditioner comes on a few times per day and keeps your home from becoming too hot and humid.
Summer is coming and whether you’re taking a cross country road trip, heading to the beach or planning a mountain getaway, it’s important to make sure your home’s heating and cooling system is in tip-top shape before you leave.
From air conditioner inspections to programmable thermostat installations, the Roland Black Heating & Cooling team is here to help!
