What to do when you go on summer vacation, but your heating and air conditioning system doesn’t.
Your heating and air conditioning system takes care of you all year, including during the hot summer weather. When you’re getting ready to head off for summer vacation, don’t forget to prep your HVAC system before you do. Here are the two best tips you need to know
Tip Number One: Don’t Turn Off the AC
It might seem reasonable to turn off the air conditioner if you’re not going to be home to need it. The best advice we can give is don’t turn off the AC when you head out of town. The air conditioning system in your home not only keeps it cool, but it reduces the humidity, protecting your house and your belongings. You don’t want to come home to a moldy situation.
Tip Number Two: Do Invest in a Smart Thermostat
A smart thermostat is a great investment no matter what time of year it is. They allow you to program the temperature inside your home to fit your lifestyle, schedule, comfort preferences and desired energy use. They'll help you keep your home more consistently comfortable and will save you time and energy over having to manually adjust it every time you want a change. The big bonus when you're on summer vacation is that you can adjust the temperature settings remotely via a Wi-Fi connection. This means you can make changes from anywhere in the world with an app on your phone, tablet, or computer.
