Summer Tips for Your Home

Summer Tips for Your Home

Learn some helpful tips if you are planning on leaving home for more than just a few days

Although saving a few extra dollars on utilities can be tempting, turning your A/C off while away can build moisture and produce mold and mildew on walls, furniture and electronics - and have costlier long-term effects. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends setting your thermostat between 80 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit to keep the air in your home dry and inhibit mold growth.

Six tips to protect your home while you are away this summer

  • Change the air filter - on your unit to ensure efficient operation while you are away
  • Clean the coils and evaporator - for best performance
  • Close all blinds and curtains - to keep the heat out as much as possible
  • Leave bedroom doors open - for better airflow
  • Unplug all electronics and appliances - to keep the house cooler
  • Take out the trash and do your laundry - body oils attract moisture and create mold
