Every summer that rolls around presents its own challenges in terms of comfort. While our summers are not quite as brutal as our winters, they can still be uncomfortable for many homeowners, particularly those with lackluster HVAC systems or just window units. But there is plenty that you can do as a homeowner to boost your comfort throughout the month of July as well as the remainder of the summer. When you work with the professionals at Shavitz Heating and Air Conditioning, you’ll be in good hands. Here are some tips for you to consider.
1. Lower water vapor with a dehumidifier
Sometimes, it’s not enough to rely on your air conditioner for comfort. Sure, it can get the job done, but high humidity levels can often leave your AC in rough shape over the long-term, and you may still find that your indoor air has excessive moisture, resulting in a clammy feeling throughout the house. A whole-house dehumidifier puts you in control over the humidity level so that you can adjust it to your heart’s content. Portable models don’t really compare.
2. Have your AC tuned-up
If you haven’t yet reached out to our technicians to have your central air unit, heat pump, or ductless mini split maintained, then you’re missing out on numerous benefits. The benefits of routine inspection, cleaning and tune-ups are myriad, including improved reliability and longevity, better efficiency, and increased performance. Make sure you have your AC maintained once a year.
3. Invest in a new air conditioner
There are times when nothing less than air conditioning replacement will do. If your system is well over a decade old and doesn’t quite operate as it should, or if it requires frequent repairs that are costing you a fortune, then it may make sense to replace the AC. A professional on our staff will help you make an informed decision.
