Air conditioning repairs are something that all of us will have to handle at some point in our lifetimes. Because air conditioners are mechanical, there are times when a part will wear out or an issue will occur that will require air conditioning repair. Unfortunately, many of these repairs are realized once the summer has started to get hot enough to use the air conditioning, causing a very busy time for HVAC technicians everywhere! If you can’t be seen immediately by an HVAC technician, you might consider a maintenance agreement, so you will receive priority service for any air conditioning repair. Here are a few things you can do to stay cool if you don’t have a maintenance agreement.
First, use your home to your advantage! This means closing the drapes during the sunniest and hottest times of the day, keeping windows open for a cross breeze, and putting your overhead fans to work. If you can prevent a lot of the heat from building up in your home, you’ll be much more comfortable without air conditioning.
Second, get creative! Try sleeping in your basement to stay cool at night. Watch a movie on a portable device while sitting in a cool bath and sipping ice water. Go to the movies and enjoy their air conditioning. With a little creativity, you can keep cool while you’re waiting for your air conditioning repair.
Finally, the best thing you can do to stay cool is actually to call for air conditioning repairs before the summer rush. If your air conditioner barely made it through last summer, call early before this coming summer!
