4 Common Tips for Cooling Systems

Whether you have a whole-house, central AC or one-room air conditioner, don’t make it work harder than it should. Follow these tips to keep your AC running smoothly, so your home will stay cool all season.


Scheduling an air-conditioner tune-up before each cooling season is essential. Monthly, or as much as recommended for your A/C unit, it is also important to either clean the air filter or replace it. When purchasing a new air conditioner, look for an ENERGY STAR-rated model. Hire a qualified contractor like Five Star Home Services to install it properly and extend excellent warranty coverage, so you know you’re covered no matter what.


Keep heat-producing appliances away from your HVAC system’s thermostat, and turn off any heat-producing devices you can do without. This includes things like incandescent and halogen light bulbs, heat-producing appliances, and unnecessary electronics. Try using your microwave, slow cooker, air fryer, or indoor grill instead of using your conventional oven and stove when possible. Don’t use your dishwasher’s dry cycle. Instead, try letting the dishes air dry outside. Wash and dry clothes when the day is cool and the air is dry if possible.


Homeowners can reduce their indoor temperature from three to eight degrees by using a whole-house fan or an attic fan. It is best to use whole-house fans during cooler times of the day and during the night. A whole house fan pulls in air from the windows and exhausts warm air outdoors through the attic and the roof vents. Don’t use whole-house fans while using your air conditioner. In order for whole house fans to work properly, the house needs to have large attic vents, and windows need to be open for pressure relief.


Remember to drink tons of water and wear short-sleeved clothing that’s loose and light-colored. Take cooler showers, and if you’re unable to get out to the local lake or swimming pool. Use a sprinkler to water you and your plants if you’re playing in the yard. Also, don’t let your cool air escape out your chimney. If your fireplace has a glass door, make sure to keep it shut. Remember, your basement is often cooler than the rest of the house. If possible, it might be a good place to take refuge from the heat in. If not, try to stay on the lower floors because the heat rises.
