How To Create A Cool, Comfortable Home This Summer

Now that Daylight Saving is here and the weather is slowly but surely getting hotter, attention turns to how heat pumps can keep our homes cooler rather than warmer. As specialists in carrying out Mitsubishi and Fujitsu heat pump service in Auckland, we can help you with a vital part of that equation. Our maintenance team can service your heat pump and bring it up to scratch so that when it is switched to cooling mode it will keep your home comfortable for years to come.

Even though heat pumps are very efficient ways to create a cool environment in your home, there are still a few things you can do to help it do an even better job. By doing so, you’ll save more money and enjoy maximum comfort. These things include:

  • On a hot day when the sun is streaming in, close windows and doors, and pull down blinds or close the curtains.
  • Use the tried and true isolation technique. If you’re at home on your own, close off the area you’re cooling and isolate yourself so your heat pump isn’t working to cool down rooms you’re not using.
  • Don’t forget about the impact your appliances can have. If you’re cooking a big meal in your oven, close the kitchen off from the area you’re cooling down. Don’t leave computers or televisions turned on if no one’s using them, as these items can generate a lot of heat. Even modern smart TVs are capable of throwing off quite a bit of heat.
  • After someone has had a shower, close the bathroom door and leave it closed (with the window open) while the room cools down again afterwards. Bathrooms get humid as well as hot, and if this humidity enters the atmosphere throughout the home, it can make things uncomfortable.
  • Check your insulation is in good shape. Insulation doesn’t just keep your home warmer during the winter; it keeps it cooler in summer, too. Check that it is in decent condition or, if you don’t have any at all, get a quote for floor and ceiling insulation as it will be a good year-round investment.

These simple things will make a big difference when it comes to creating a cool and comfortable home this summer. Another simple thing to do is to contact us and ask for a heat pump service, In conjunction with the tips we’ve just given you, a fully functioning heat pump will have you feeling fine all summer long.
