Tips For Your Home When Going Away
Now that temperatures start to rise we all start to look forward to warmer and sunny days. The weather becomes our friend again and brings spring and summer long. Though it might still be a bit early to go on holiday, most of us are dreaming of planning our next vacation with the family. Once we have clear blue skies, everything shines under better light, and those plans start to take a better shape.
We at Thomson AC want to make your life as easy and as comfortable as possible for you and your family by giving you some tips on what to do before going on a holiday. Whether you’re going on a little getaway next weekend or if you’ve been making plans to go somewhere since last winter, these recommendations will not only let you enjoy your time more but it will also guarantee that everything at home stays just the way you left it.
Check Your Air Conditioner
A popular belief would be to turn the whole system off, however, we advise turning up the thermostat without turning the AC off. If you have a programmable thermostat you’re in luck. You can set it up to 80 degrees, and have it go as low as 70 degrees the day before you come back. This will not only help you save some energy, but it will also keep your AC in good shape. By not turning it off, you ensure that air keeps circulating throughout your house, and avoid condensation within the system.
Nothing worse than coming back from a lovely getaway and realizing you have to get an air conditioning Repair in Los Alamitos, CA. However, It’s still worth having it maintained by professionals before the summer starts so that you don’t have to spend a single day in unbearable heat due to an emergency repair.
Check Your Water Supply
It’s not like the temperatures are so low anymore for you to be concerned about having the pipes frozen, so checking for leaks or abnormalities might spare you a headache in the future. We advise closing the main water supply before leaving since there might be small leaks that you overlook and could turn out to cause extensive damage in the house. It will only take a couple of seconds and you will be saving thousands of dollars in repairs if something happens.
