Optimize Your HVAC for Memorial Day: Tips for Staying Cool in the Blanco Area

May 17, 2024 | Blog

As Memorial Day approaches, signaling the start of summer in Blanco, Johnson City, Dripping Springs, Stonewall, Spring Branch, and Canyon Lake, making sure your air conditioning system is prepared is key. At Blanco A/C, Electrical, & Plumbing, we are dedicated to keeping your home comfortable and energy-efficient. Here are some expert tips to ensure your HVAC system remains in peak condition during the holiday weekend and the hot months to come.

Smart Thermostat Settings

For optimal energy efficiency without compromising comfort, it’s important to manage your thermostat settings wisely. We suggest setting your thermostat at a comfortable 78 degrees when you’re home and raising it slightly when you’re away. This small adjustment can substantially reduce your energy consumption. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat yet, consider investing in one, as it automatically adjusts temperatures based on your daily schedule, enhancing both comfort and energy savings.

Regular HVAC Maintenance

The key to dependable cooling throughout the summer is regular maintenance. Blanco A/C offers thorough maintenance services that check your system’s refrigerant levels, clean the coils, and ensure all components are functioning efficiently. Regular maintenance not only helps prevent unexpected breakdowns but also enhances your system’s efficiency.

Update Your Air Filters

A simple yet effective way to improve your HVAC system’s efficiency is by regularly changing your air filters. Clean filters promote better airflow and air quality, reducing the strain on your system. This straightforward maintenance task can lead to lower energy bills and extend the lifespan of your HVAC unit.

Utilize Ceiling Fans

Integrating the use of ceiling fans with your HVAC system can improve air circulation and make your home feel cooler without needing to lower your thermostat further. Ensure your fans are set to rotate counterclockwise during the summer to push cool air downward, which allows for a higher thermostat setting.
