During extreme summer, you will experience an increase in temperature and there will be periods of high humidity. Your home becomes warm and the heat can increase to levels that force you to stay outdoors during the day. The nights can be warmer and require you to turn on your fans or your home’s cooling system. Due to increased activities, you will consume more energy and might require upgrading your lighting system and gadgets to those that can help save energy.
Recheck or fit air conditioning system
If your house is installed with an air conditioning system, it could have been idle for close to 6 months. During that period, the system could have gathered a lot of dust which can affect your family’s health when it’s switched on. The system could also have rusty parts which can affect its functionality. Before summer sets in, call your local electrician on call and have him inspect the system to remove all dust or rust and test if it’s functioning well.
Install ceiling fans
Ceiling fans help dispel heat and allow cool air to circulate within your room when the day is hot. Your home air conditioning system can consume a lot of energy and you can alternate its use with fans to help save energy. No matter how simple installing a ceiling fan might seem, never attempt a DIY because of the dangers. Look for the Los Angeles electrician and let him help you with safe installation and you will be sure of your safety and the safety of your family.
Unplug and clean your home heating system
Your home heating system was useful in keeping your home warm during winter and part of spring. If you let it continue running during summer, your home will be extremely hot and inhabitable. Before summer, unplug the heat supply system and call a licensed electrician to help you clean it or remove any moisture that could have gathered in the system due to heat. If the moisture is left to settle, it can cause rusting in the system’s metallic parts. Your electrician will ensure the system is dry and will correct any faulty part leaving it ready to serve again the next winter.
Save more energy by installing solar panels
You could have consumed a lot of energy during winter and spring to heat your house making your bills soar. Now that summer will bring a huge supply of sun’s energy, you can tap solar energy and save your electricity bills massively. Contact your electrician and ask him to help you install solar lighting and water heating panels and save more on energy.
