Top Spring Tips For A More Comfortable Home

Put Some Spring in Your Step

You’ve probably already compiled your spring to-do list for this season, but you may be overlooking some crucial steps that can help keep your home comfortable in the upcoming months.

Homeowners’ schedules can fill up quite quickly in the spring with soccer games, vacations, and family visits. Hence, it’s best to set aside some time at the beginning of the season to prep your home for busier months.

Upgrade Your AC

What’s cooler than being cool? The ultimate way to keep your home comfortable all season long is by upgrading your AC. Air conditioning systems typically last for 15 to 20 years with proper maintenance. Once they hit the end of their lifetime, they can become less energy-efficient and require frequent repairs.

Suppose your AC has reached the end of its life span, or you’re simply searching for a more energy-efficient system, in that case, we recommend upgrading your AC for maximized energy savings down the road. If you’ve been struggling to part ways with your inefficient air conditioner, consider this your sign to upgrade.

Our team at Smart Air will work diligently to find the best cooling system for your home and budget. When it comes to air conditioners, proper installation is necessary. Our technicians are highly trained in AC installations and can guarantee a job well done.

Invest in a Dehumidifier

We all know how humid the Houston area can be, especially during warmer months. Excessive humidity in the home can feel like a sticky nightmare! Taking control of your comfort this spring means keeping tabs on the humidity levels in your home.

In addition to enhancing your home’s comfort, dehumidifiers are the perfect sidekick for your AC system! High humidity levels often make the house feel warmer, tempting us to blast the AC. When humidity levels are managed, the home will feel less uncomfortable and more breezy, preventing the need to overwork your AC on hotter days. Say goodbye to the muggy atmosphere in your home, and say hello to energy savings!

Clean the Ceiling Fan Blades

There’s nothing that can further irritate your seasonal allergies like dust and debris buildup in your home. After dusting the shelves, tables, and knickknacks, don’t forget to show some love to your fan blades!

It can be easy to forget about your ceiling fan blades during a spring cleaning frenzy. However, fan blades can harbor particles that can negatively impact your indoor air quality. To start this season on the right foot, give some extra attention to your ceiling fan.

Pro tip: You can clean your fan blades with a pillowcase! Simply insert the blade into an old pillowcase, use the case to collect any built-up debris, and pull the pillowcase off. Repeat for each blade. Once done, take your pillowcase outside and shake out the collected dust. Finally, wash your pillowcase to ensure any leftover dust won’t float around your home.

Keep Windows Closed

Opening the window on a nice sunny day can be tempting, but it can wreak havoc when you’re trying to preserve a comfortable home atmosphere. While the warmth of the sunlight creeps in, so do outside allergens and contaminants. If you or a family member suffers from allergies, it’s best to keep those doors and windows closed.

An open window can also serve as the perfect opportunity for hot and humid Houston air to seep into your home, putting a significant strain on your air conditioner. Your air conditioner may struggle to cool your home with continuous warm air bursting through, leading to expensive energy bills.
