Staying Cool in Florida Heat? It’s Easier Than You Think!

If you can expect one thing living here in Florida it’s high heat! We have pretty much year-round summers in our neck of the woods. The sunny days nearly 365 days a year can either be a blessing or a curse depending on whether you have the right air conditioning system or not. Sometimes you might struggle with the AC in your home although it’s relatively recent, in seemingly good shape, and operative.

If you’re paying far too much for your air conditioning services or if you’re struggling to stay cool, we have a few simple tips for you. We specialize in air conditioning in West Palm Beach, FL and we can be out to your home in a flash to service your AC when you need us. Contact us today—we go the extra mile.

Simple Tips to Boost Your AC System

Here are a few easy ways that you can help your air conditioning system help you:

Replace Your Filter

When was the last time you replaced your air conditioner’s filter? Just to clarify here, we’re talking about your AC filter—not any filter that you have in your home to regulate your indoor air quality. Your air conditioner’s filter is in charge of keeping your air conditioning unit clean and free of any debris that could render it inoperative. The standard for all air conditioners is that you should replace your air conditioner’s filter at least once a season. We recommend this for homeowners here in Florida because we use our AC systems so often.

Turn Your Thermostat Up

We know, we know, you’re probably reading this in the middle of wiping sweat from your brow in our swampy West Palm Beach heat and scoffing. Trust us though—we’re the experts! It’s easy for homeowners to get a little hasty when it comes to their thermostat settings. You might think that setting your thermostat to a super low setting will help you cool off your home faster. In actuality, the speed of your air conditioning system is never going to change. You can think of your thermostat setting as the goal you’re setting for your air conditioner. Setting the thermostat lower just makes the goal even further away for your thermostat. You’re only going to make the system work longer—not faster.

Consider installing a smart thermostat if you want to arrive home to a cool house. These systems can be programmed from the convenience of your smartphone or any device that has Wi-Fi capabilities so that you can remain cool when it counts.

Schedule Maintenance Services

It’s not too late to schedule maintenance services for your air conditioning system! Maintenance is the best way for you to ensure that you’re getting the air conditioning that you want. Additionally, maintenance services from a professional can help you avoid an AC breakdown in the middle of summer. If you want a team that you can trust, make sure you come to Mechanical Air Conditioning. We’re committed to helping you find savings and comfort.
