Have your Home Summer Ready for that Blazing Heat!
Summer has arrived and we are already feeling that heat. That means pools opening up, sprinklers out on the lawn, and high air conditioning bills! Everything except high bills sounds like the summer we love. Thankfully, we can help keep that third one as cool as the temperature in your pool with a few tips.
The first step is incidentally the easiest step. Check the filters for your heating and cooling system and ensure they are still in great shape. It’s always recommended to check with the manufacturer's instructions when changing, but a general rule of thumb is when the season changes, so does your filter.
To test your air conditioning unit is running properly, use the “cool” setting on the thermostat, drop the temperature and see what happens. If cool air is not blowing, check the breaker box before calling in a licensed professional for a quick maintenance check. Also, the sooner you call, the greater your chances are of having someone come out. The deeper into summer we go, the deeper down the list you go as everyone tries to have their house serviced. Luckily, you’ll be one of the first!
A few other quick items to check include: checking for holes in the water hose, checking your pool’s pH balance, cleaning ceiling fans, checking outside electrical outlets, and definitely consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat!
Get ready for another hot summer, Saratoga
