How to Prevent AC Overload at the End of Summer

It’s August now, and summer is sadly wrapping up soon. Yet here in Florida and throughout much of the rest of the country, the heat will continue to be intense, and may even get more extreme over the next few months. This means you’ll need to keep running your air conditioner—hopefully without overusing it. Keep reading to learn how to prevent AC overload at the end of simmer, and make sure to contact our Palm Beach County HVAC experts at Phoenix Air Conditioning, LLC for all your HVAC service needs.

5 Simple Tips to Make Sure You’re Not Overexerting Your AC

  1. Use Your Windows: You can keep out a lot of heat from your home and make your AC unit’s job much easier by simply closing your window blinds. When it gets cooler at night, you should also consider cracking a few windows open to give your AC a break.
  2. Invest in Some Fans: Although it might seem like a simple solution, running fans instead of the AC can save you money and prevent your system from going beyond its capacity. Moreover, a well-placed fan can circulate cool air throughout your home, enhancing your AC’s performance.
  3. Set a Schedule: By adjusting your thermostat so your air doesn’t have to run on full power at all times, you can regulate cooling power based on when you are and are not home. You may also want to invest in a programmable or smart thermostat, so you can cool your house down before you get there without having to waste unnecessary energy by leaving the air on all the time.
  4. Turn off Unnecessary Lights: Lights can generate a surprising about of heat in your house, forcing your AC to use more power than is necessary.
  5.  Clean Out Your Ducts: Ducts that are clogged with dust and debris force your AC to work harder, in addition to exacerbating allergy issues. Check your ducts periodically to make sure they aren’t dirty, or hire an HVAC technician to clean them for you.
