A summer in Brooklyn is almost unbearable without air conditioning. Most homeowners make sure that they have their HVAC system up and running before the temperatures start to rise. However, there is one thing that homeowners tend to forget about when planning for the summer: vacations. It is a bad idea to simply forget about your air conditioning when you leave for a vacation.
Some people believe that turning off the HVAC system when on vacation is the best option. However, this is not the case. Your air conditioning should still run, just not as often as it would when you are home. Before leaving for vacation, adjust the temperature by five degrees higher than normal. For example, if the standard temperature for your home is 72 degrees, turn it up to 77 degrees before vacation.
Prep your home for inclement weather before heading out. Summer thunderstorms can happen out of nowhere, and you want to make sure your home is prepared while you are away. Check the area around your HVAC system for unsecured structures or low hanging limbs.
