We’re getting into the hottest days of the year. It’s July. And we’re all looking for ways to cool down. For many, that includes drinking more water. But did you know stay hydrated could actually help your air conditioning unit? Let us explain.
Staying Hydrated to Help your HVAC System
It’s important to drink plenty of water year round, but especially during these brutal summer days. It helps to lower our body temperature overall so you feel more comfortable in warmer conditions! So you don’t have to turn your A/C down as much to stay comfortable.
It’s a simply step that has a positive effect on your own health and your air conditioner’s health. Your A/C won’t have to work as hard, saving you money and wear on your HVAC system this summer.
Replace those air filters
Besides drinking lots of water, it’s crucial to check those air filters right now. They play a big role in cleaning the air of dust, pollen and pet fur. Right now, they can be getting even dirty if you’re barbequing outside your house. That smoke can gunk up those filters more quickly. When they get clogged up, it’s difficult for your air conditioner to run. Give it a break, and clean or replace those air filters as soon as they start to get dirty.
