Stay Cool This Memorial Day: Essential AC Efficiency Tips from Southern Air

May 15, 2024 | Blog

With Memorial Day around the corner, marking the beginning of summer in Baton Rouge, Port Allen, Brusly, Prairieville, and the nearby areas, ensuring your HVAC system is in top shape is crucial. Southern Air Baton Rouge is dedicated to helping you enjoy a comfortably cool home throughout the holiday without racking up high energy bills. Here are some vital tips to enhance your A/C system’s efficiency for a relaxing and cool Memorial Day weekend.

Smart Thermostat Management

Efficient use of your thermostat is critical for reducing energy consumption while maintaining home comfort. We suggest setting your thermostat to an energy-efficient yet comfortable temperature, typically around 78 degrees when you are home. Increase the thermostat slightly when you are away or during cooler nighttime hours to save more energy. Consider investing in a programmable or smart thermostat that automatically adjusts temperatures based on your schedule, ensuring optimal comfort and energy usage.

Prioritize Routine HVAC Maintenance

To prevent any cooling interruptions during your Memorial Day celebrations, it’s important to have your air conditioning system checked and tuned up. Southern Air Baton Rouge offers comprehensive HVAC maintenance services to ensure your unit is running smoothly. Our skilled technicians will inspect refrigerant levels, electrical connections, and condenser coils, among other components, to prevent unexpected breakdowns and maintain efficiency.

Change Air Filters Regularly

Regularly replacing your HVAC air filters is an easy yet crucial maintenance task. Clean filters improve airflow, boost indoor air quality, and reduce the workload on your system, which leads to significant energy savings and enhanced overall comfort.

Utilize Ceiling Fans

Using ceiling fans in conjunction with your HVAC system can help circulate cool air more effectively throughout your home. This strategy allows you to raise the thermostat setting by a few degrees, thereby reducing the cooling load on your HVAC system and conserving energy.

Explore Our Maintenance Plans

Check out the Shield Membership Protection Plans offered by Southern Air Baton Rouge, which provide routine maintenance checks, priority service, and discounts on repairs. These plans help ensure your HVAC system operates at peak efficiency year-round, saving you money and prolonging the lifespan of your system.

Ensure your HVAC system is ready to deliver efficient performance as you host Memorial Day events or simply relax at home.
