The cool air that washes over you as you enter your Tullahoma, Tennessee, home is a refreshing contrast to the oppressive outdoor summer heat. Just imagine if inside your home felt as hot and muggy as it does outside. Learn what strains your AC so that you can make adjustments. Simple changes can protect your air conditioning system and keep it going through many more sizzling summers.

Cool Efficiently

You want to stay cool, but bear in mind that the further the thermostat setting is from the outside temperature, the harder your unit has to work. Remember to adjust the thermostat’s setting when you are away from home or asleep. Each degree you increase the temperature will lead to energy savings. Implement other measures to keep you cool when at home. Simple tips for staying cool include ditching the comforter, drinking cold beverages, and dressing for the warm weather.

Schedule AC Maintenance

The best way to protect your air conditioning system is to schedule regular AC maintenance. Your air conditioner endures wear and tear as it works to keep you comfortable. Schedule professional AC maintenance annually, and our service technicians will clean your system and repair any worn or broken components. Preventive maintenance will help to keep your system running as efficiently as possible.

Seal Your Home

Your air conditioner will have to work harder if there are air leaks around your home. You can lose cool air to drafts around doors and windows or in rooms with too little insulation. Cracks or leaks in your home’s envelope can lead to reduced comfort and higher utility bills. There is also the risk of damage to a unit that has to work harder to keep you cool. Seal leaks with weatherstripping, caulk or expanding foam. Consider adding insulation to rooms that need it.

Put in a little effort now, and your air conditioner will reward you with cool comfort for many years. To schedule professional AC maintenance, call Stroop’s Accurate Refrigeration at 931-241-4851. We are also happy to help you with any other air conditioning service need.
