What should you do to prepare your home for summer?

One thing’s for certain, Alabama summers are hot. There are many ways to help cool yourself down, and the best place to start is with your HVAC unit. In fact, the first thing you can do to prepare your home for summer is to get your unit serviced. The last thing you want is to experience difficulties or malfunctions during a 95-degree day, drenched in humidity!

So here’s the scoop: The number one cause for HVAC unit breakdown is dirt. At Guin Service, we can help you by routinely servicing your system one to four times a year. 

Tips for Prepping for Summer

HVAC Service Will Help You Beat The Heat

The number one cause of HVAC breakdown is inconsistent or the total absence of maintenance. We don’t know if you’ve ever had your heater break down in winter, but trust us, losing your AC in summer is far worse! 

Guin Service sees it all too many times throughout each summer. Poor families all over Alabama suffer in sweaty clothes when we show up with our tool kits. The good news is, you don’t have to wait for your HVAC to break down to have it serviced. With one phone call, you can schedule for one of our certified professionals to check up on your AC unit. 

But avoiding breakdowns is only one reason to have your HVAC system serviced. In fact, a maintenance check can, and most likely will, actually save you money in the long run. Continue reading on to find out why! 

Save Big On Your Energy Bills

Saving on energy bills is on the top of everybody’s mind. The easiest thing to do to save money is to just turn the temperature up. But if you’re like me and can’t do that, the easy thing to do is turn on the fan. Either the fan inside your HVAC system, or a ceiling fan. That will make it feel more comfortable inside of your home. 

Replace Your HVAC Unit With a More Efficient System

Another way to save on energy bills is when you replace your HVAC system. When that time comes, you should definitely think about installing a more efficient system. Not only are they more energy-efficient, but they also control the humidity, which makes you feel more comfortable in the summer months. 

Seal Your Home Off From The Hot Summer Air

And lastly, though not HVAC-related, is to make sure that you have all your windows and doors sealed properly. And also check the insulation inside of your attic. 

These small things can make a big difference when it comes to the efficiency of your entire home. So give Guin Service a call today so we can help you be more comfortable during the hot Alabama summer.
