Beating the Heat; Come Home to a Cool (not cold) House

The prime function of air conditioning is to remove humidity or moisture from the air in your home, according to the heating and air conditioning experts at Aire Serv of Caledon-King. The mistake most homeowners make is running the air conditioning unit too aggressively. This can result in much higher energy costs and puts additional stress on the appliance. The reality is with outdoor summer humidex readings in the 35 plus range an air conditioned home is typically very comfortable at 24 C (75 F) because the humidity has been removed.

At Aire Serv Heating and Air Conditioning of Caledon- King we recommend our clients not to over cool their home, especially during the day when no one is around. A programmable thermostat can help regulate a higher temperature during the day and a lower (or cooler) temperature during the evening. This also saves energy costs during peak hours. It’s the complete reverse of heating, but the same rules apply. This is why you should close your blinds or curtains during the day to keep the heat out, make sure all windows are closed, and have the children come in and out of doors quickly. Also, check to make sure your attic is properly vented because attic temperatures in the summer can easily reach 55 C.

Don’t wait until a heat wave to turn your air conditioner on. If the weather man is forecasting a heat wave, turn the air conditioning unit on as soon as possible; otherwise you may overwork the system which costs you extra money and could result in failure. Be heat smart and turn it on before it’s needed. It takes about five times longer to cool a house than it does to heat one. Keeping a moderate, consistent temperature is far smarter than waiting for a heat wave to turn on the air conditioner.
