Beat the Heat with These Four Tips

Airwise Heating and Air Conditioning Benbrook

As temperatures rise and summer approaches, folks in Fort Worth and other communities in Tarrant County, Texas, are looking for ways to beat the heat. Here are four tips that will help you keep your cool during the hot Texas summer.

Use Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans help you feel cool even though they don’t actually reduce air temperature. Fans make a room feel 10 degrees cooler. By using ceiling fans, you can increase the thermostat temperature by 4 degrees. You can save money and energy while enjoying the cooling breezes of ceiling fans.

Take Advantage of Shade

Shading the exterior of a building reduces the load on an air conditioner. Shaded surfaces don’t heat up as much as those in full sun, resulting in less heat transfer. Shade trees keep roofs cool, which translates into a cooler living space. Closing blinds and curtains during the sunniest part of the day keeps interiors cool.

Make Sure Your Unit Is Running Efficiently

A well-maintained unit operates at higher efficiency and is better able to deal with both heat and humidity. A dirty filter is the number one reason customers call for AC repair. Seasonal AC maintenance examines all elements of an HVAC unit, including refrigerant, compressor, fans, drip pans and electrical connections. Tune-ups extend the life of the unit and reduce fuel usage.

Upgrade to a More Efficient Unit

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be able to cool efficiently or experiences frequent breakdowns, it may be time to replace it. Geothermal heat pumps reduce utility bills up to 70 percent. Heat pumps are better able to deal with humidity than traditional HVAC systems, providing a comfortable indoor environment.
