In the Henderson area, the transition from summer to fall means a welcome change from scorching temperatures to pleasantly warm days. As fall approaches, try these four ways to keep your home comfortable.
Open the Windows
Now that the days are becoming much more comfortable, it’s a great time to open the windows to let in some fresh air. Before you open them all at the same time, though, keep a few things in mind. Put screens in place if you’re concerned about insects or other small creatures sneaking inside. For maximum effect, use your windows to create a sort of whole-house ventilation effect. Remember that heat rises, so be sure to open windows on both floors and opposite sides of your home.
Install a Ductless Air Conditioning System
If you prefer to turn down the air conditioning in all but one or two rooms once fall hits, a ductless air conditioning system is a great solution. These mini-split systems allow you to target certain zones or rooms in your house, so you can cool select rooms instead of the whole house. Since ductless systems are linked to certain zones, they also work quickly and efficiently.
Program Your Smart Thermostat
Smart thermostats are great tools for programming your daily cooling schedule, but they can also help you transition into a new season seamlessly. Since smart thermostats connect to your home’s Wi-Fi network, they can monitor the weather and make adjustments to allow for seasonal changes. That means your home will always feel comfortable, even in transitional weather.
Schedule Preventative Maintenance
Fall and spring are the times of year when your HVAC system needs maintenance the most. After a long summer of heavy air conditioner use, an HVAC tech should check the system’s refrigerant levels, replace the air filters, and make sure the system still runs smoothly. By scheduling preventative maintenance, you’ll be sure to stay comfortable in any season.
