Balancing My HVAC System

A few months ago, I realized that something was wrong with my HVAC system. It seemed like no matter what I did, some rooms were hot and some rooms were simply getting too much cooled air. Instead of trying to troubleshoot my air conditioner on my own, I called out a professional HVAC repairman for help. They went through each room of my house when the system was running to measure the outgoing airflow and to check for issues. They discovered some serious balance problems, which they resolved after running a few extra lines. Check out this blog to learn more about HVAC in general.

3 Ways To Stay Cool In Your Home This Summer

If you're tired of feeling too warm inside your home, there are some simple things you can do about it. Here are three ways to beat the heat and stay cool while hanging out inside your home this summer.

1. Install an Air Conditioner

One of the best ways to keep your home as cool as possible during the summer is to install an air conditioner. If you choose AC installation, you'll need to decide what type of air conditioner to install.

Here are some different types of air conditioners:

  • Central Air: Allows cool air to circulate through ducts, which keeps the whole house cool.
  • Mini-Split: A ductless air conditioner that cools individual rooms in the home.
  • Window: Installed in a window, this is best for small spaces.
  • Portable: A portable air conditioner that's used in just one room.

There are pros and cons to each of these different types of air conditioners. One pro is that all of these air conditioners also reduce humidity. The size of your home and how much money you want to spend for AC installation are some key factors to consider when choosing the air conditioner that best suits your cooling needs.

2. Use Your Fans

A fan won't cool your home, nor will it remove humidity, but a fan will help you feel cooler. A fan moves air around, which helps to evaporate the sweat on your skin. This in turn eliminates body heat.

Here are some of the most common types of household fans from which to choose:

  • Ceiling fan
  • Tower fan
  • Pedestal fan
  • Window fan
  • Bladeless fan
  • Table fan
  • Wall-mounted fan

One of the greatest benefits of using a fan instead of an air conditioner is that fans use a lot less electricity. This means besides keeping you cool, a fan will help reduce your energy costs this summer.

3. Open Your Windows

One way to keep cool for free is to open your windows. Of course, you need to wait until it's actually cooler outside than it is in your home in order for this to work. When you open your windows, cool air replaces all the hot air that is built up inside the home. Some people like to keep their windows open all night and then close them during the day.

For the coolest effect, you'll want to open the windows at the highest and lowest points of your house. If it's still warm inside your house with the windows open, head to the lowest level of your home.
