Close the Door!

The Easiest Rule To Follow About Your Air Conditioner

Summertime is when you most need your air conditioning unit to operate properly. It’s also, naturally, the time it’s most likely to fail. As with other devices that we have in our home, the easiest solution to problems is often the most overlooked. If you have your air conditioner running, ensure that you have closed all windows and any exterior doors. How many times as a child did you hear a parent chide “close the door! Are you trying to cool off the whole neighborhood?!” or something similar? While you certainly weren’t cooling anyone else off with the escaping air, you weren’t doing your AC any favors either. The harder it has to run, the sooner maintenance may be needed. So don’t forget to close the door! And the windows, too!
