Leverage the Weather With These Easy Tips

February 15th, 2017

 

If it’s February in Tucson, it must be spring! This is the time of year we all want to get outside and enjoy the mild temperatures. This time of year also presents an opportunity to keep your home comfortable without having to have your air conditioning or heat on.

Here are some tips to maximize the mild temperatures for your home comfort.

  • Open the windows! Opening windows on the opposite side of the house allows the breeze to flow through keeping the temperature comfortable and letting in some fresh air. This is a perfect way to get the most out of weather.
  • Get the ceiling fans going. While it will be warm outside, you may not be ready to turn the AC on yet. Take advantage of mild weather by using your ceiling fans. This keeps air circulating and the temperature consistent.
  • Get ready! Now is the time to have your air conditioning unit checked by a professional to ensure that it’s operating at full capacity to get your through the Tucson summer. Our professional maintenance team will check on the condition of your air conditioning unit and inspect all of the parts to make sure everything is functioning as it should.
  • Apply weather stripping and caulking around doors and windows to keep air inside. This will be vital when you start running your air conditioner.
  • Plant trees and shrubs to keep the house and the air conditioner’s outdoor component in the shade, yet still allow air to circulate.
