How to Prepare Your AC for Summer

Jacksonville’s high heat and humidity can last from early April through late October, so getting your AC summer-ready is a smart move. A few simple steps will and you can use the savings for an impromptu summer getaway or a high-efficiency AC install. Here’s how to enjoy reliable indoor comfort and save on utility bills too:

Schedule an AC Maintenance Visit

Annual air conditioner maintenance has been shown to prevent up to 95 percent of potential AC repair costs, and optimizing your system for high performance can deliver cost and energy savings of up to 40 percent.

Get a Programmable Thermostat

A basic programmable thermostat is an inexpensive gadget that, if used properly, can cut your cooling costs every day. Just setting the device to cut back on air conditioning while you’re at work can make a big difference in your electric bills, and all you have to do is set it and forget it.

Stock Up on Air Filters

Changing your AC filter every month keeps your indoor air clean and your cooling system healthy. Dirty filters raise energy bills by reducing air flow and making your air conditioner work harder.

Reduce Your AC’s Workload by Supplementing With Ceiling Fans

Although fans don’t make your home cooler, they do make you feel cooler by creating a wind-chill effect that makes the air feel cooler than it actually is. You can turn the thermostat four degrees higher and still feel just as comfortable. Set your ceiling fans to rotate in a counterclockwise direction and enjoy a refreshing downward airflow. Add a few oscillating tabletop and floor fans to the mix, and you’ll feel like you’re living on the beach.
