Summer Home Maintenance Tip

Living in Hawaii means enjoying beautiful, warm weather year-round, but the summer months can bring intense heat and humidity. Keeping your air conditioning (AC) system running efficiently is essential to stay cool and comfortable. Here are some key tips:

1. Clean or Replace Air Filters Regularly

Dirty filters restrict airflow, making your AC work harder. Check filters monthly and replace or clean them every 1-3 months to ensure optimal performance.

2. Clear the Area Around the Outdoor Unit

Ensure at least two feet of clearance around your outdoor unit. Remove any debris, plants, or objects that could obstruct airflow and cause the system to overheat.

3. Schedule Professional Maintenance

Have a professional inspect and tune up your AC system annually. They can identify and fix potential issues before they become costly repairs.

4. Use a Programmable Thermostat

Set a schedule that raises the temperature when you're not home and cools it down before you return. This reduces strain on your AC and lowers energy bills.

5. Seal and Insulate Ductwork

Leaky ducts can waste up to 30% of your cooling energy. Ensure all ductwork is properly sealed and insulated to maintain efficient airflow.

6. Keep Vents Open and Unobstructed

Blocked vents can disrupt air circulation and force your AC to work harder. Make sure furniture and other objects are not blocking any vents.

Following these tips, you can keep your AC running efficiently, lower your energy bills, and ensure a comfortable home throughout the Hawaiian summer.
