Optimize Your HVAC for Memorial Day: Tips for Staying Cool in the Biloxi Area

May 16, 2024 | Blog

As Memorial Day approaches, marking the beginning of summer in Biloxi, Gulf Port, Ocean Springs, Saucier, Latimer, and Lyman, ensuring your air conditioning system is well-prepared is crucial. At Ball Air Conditioning, Heating, Plumbing & Electrical, we are committed to keeping your home both comfortable and efficient. Here are some expert tips to keep your HVAC system in peak condition during the holiday weekend and the hot months ahead.

Smart Thermostat Settings

To achieve energy efficiency without sacrificing comfort, it’s important to manage your thermostat settings thoughtfully. We recommend setting your thermostat at a comfortable 78 degrees when you’re home and increasing it slightly when you’re not. This adjustment can significantly cut down on your energy consumption. If you don’t yet have one, consider investing in a programmable thermostat, which automatically changes temperatures based on your schedule, improving comfort and saving energy.

Regular HVAC Maintenance

Reliability throughout the summer starts with regular maintenance. Ball Air offers thorough maintenance services that check your system’s refrigerant levels, clean the coils, and ensure all components are working efficiently. Staying on top of maintenance not only helps prevent unexpected breakdowns but also keeps your system efficient.

Update Your Air Filters

One of the simplest ways to boost your HVAC system’s efficiency is by regularly changing your air filters. Clean filters enhance airflow and air quality while lessening the strain on your system. This straightforward maintenance task can lead to reduced energy bills and extend the lifespan of your HVAC unit.

Utilize Ceiling Fans

Utilizing ceiling fans in combination with your HVAC system can enhance air circulation and make your home feel cooler without the need to lower your thermostat further. Make sure your fans are set to rotate counterclockwise during the summer to push cool air downward, allowing for a higher thermostat setting.
