As the temperatures rise and summer approaches, ensuring that your home is ready to handle the heat is essential. At JD Service Now, we understand the importance of proactive maintenance to keep your home comfortable and efficient throughout the summer.

Here are some essential tips to prepare your home for the summer heat:

1. Schedule an AC System Check

2. Inspect & Clean Your Outdoor Unit

Look at your outdoor AC unit and make sure it’s clear of any debris, such as leaves, dirt, or vegetation. Use a hose to gently rinse off the coils and remove any buildup that could impede airflow. Keeping the outdoor unit clean and unobstructed ensures optimal performance and energy efficiency.

3. Seal Windows & Doors

Inspect the seals around your windows and doors for any wear or damage. Properly sealing these openings helps prevent cool air from escaping and warm air from entering your home, which can significantly impact your energy bills during the summer. Replace any worn weatherstripping or caulking to ensure a tight seal.

4. Check Your Attic Insulation

Adequate insulation in your attic is crucial for maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature and reducing energy costs. Check your attic insulation for any signs of damage or deterioration, and add more if needed. Proper insulation helps prevent heat transfer and keeps your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

5. Invest in Programmable Thermostats

Consider upgrading to programmable thermostats if you haven’t already done so. These devices allow you to set different temperature schedules for different times of the day, optimizing energy usage and saving you money on cooling costs. Set your thermostat to a higher temperature when you’re away from home to reduce energy consumption.

By following these tips and scheduling a comprehensive AC system check with JD Service Now, you can be sure your home is ready to beat the summer heat. Our skilled technicians are here to help you stay cool and comfortable all season.
