How to Maximize the Cooling Effect of Your Home Air Conditioning

Maximizing your home’s ability to produce cold air during the hot summer months in Lafayette, LA, will ensure your family stays cool and comfortable. It’ll help you save a buck or two on your utility bill, too.
Here are three (easy) ways to maximize your air conditioner’s cooling effect.

Perform AC Maintenance Regularly

Of all the regions in the United States, homeowners in the South are the most reliant on their air conditioners. With the average highs creeping above a humid 90°F during June, July and August, your air conditioning unit becomes a summertime workhorse.

To ensure your air conditioner performs at peak efficiency, it’s critical you maintain it before, during and after the strenuous summer season. During a routine maintenance visit, an HVAC technician will complete an inspection and make sure:

  • Your air conditioner has the right amount of refrigerant
  • Your air conditioner doesn’t have any leaks
  • Your air conditioner’s thermostat provides an accurate reading
  • Your air conditioner’s parts are in working order

To remain proactive in the process, remember to change your air conditioner’s filter.

Invest in a Dehumidifier

Improving your home’s cooling effect doesn’t stop with AC maintenance; you need to dehumidify it, too. If your home becomes too humid, which is a realistic possibility in Lafayette, LA, it can cause your air conditioner to work even harder. What’s more, high humidity levels can create a safe haven for mold, dust mites and pests. To avoid an indoor air quality problem and lessen your AC’s workload, consider investing in a state-of-the art dehumidifier so you can dehumidify your home.

Use Your Ceiling Fans Wisely

During the summer, your home’s ceiling fans should be set to spin in a counterclockwise direction. Remember that this cooling effect only works if you’re in the room, so turn the ceiling room off to conserve energy if you’re not using it.
