Texas weather is not always easy to predict due to consistently fluctuating temperatures. This can make it difficult to maintain a comfortable temperature indoors. Consider these tips to stay comfortable in your Rockwall, Texas, home.
Inspect Your Insulation
Poor insulation could be responsible for your uncomfortable home temperature. In a home that has little insulation, the HVAC unit works hard to supply enough heat or air to the entire home. The problem, however, is that a lot of that air is lost through the home’s walls. Additionally, heat and air can escape through windows, doors, and attics. The best way to identify an insulation problem is to have it checked by a professional.
Keep Up With Routine Maintenance
Over time, your home’s air filters fill up with debris and dust. Not only can this buildup result in poor air quality within the home, but it can also make the temperature in your home uncomfortable. Air filters should be changed every couple of months. Additionally, they may need to be changed more often if you have pets or live in a dusty climate.
Scheduling regular HVAC tune-ups can also help to keep your unit working consistently. Loose or broken parts can reduce the efficiency of your unit, often affecting its ability to comfortably cool or heat your home.
Install a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat is one of the best ways to maintain a comfortable room despite fluctuating temperatures. The great thing about programmable thermostats is that you can adjust them even when you are away from the house. If temperatures increase higher than expected, you can log into your smartphone app and adjust the temperature as needed. You can also automatically set it to turn on or off, based on the current household temperature.
