Are you planning any last-minute trips this summer before the kids are back in school? If you are, then check out this blog post before leaving to make sure that you’ve crossed everything off the pre-vacation checklist.
Remember that when you’re away on vacation, there’s no one left in your house, so there is no reason to keep it at a cool and comfortable temperature. This doesn’t mean you should shut your unit off altogether because that would require your unit to exert an excessive amount of energy once you turn it back on after your vacation.
Make sure that you close all of the windows in your house before you leave. This will benefit you in a number of ways. It will help to keep some of the hot air out of your home while you’re gone, in addition to keeping dust, dirt, debris, and potential summer rain from coming in.
You should also close the blinds, curtains, and shades before you leave. This will prevent heat gain through the glass of the windows.
Cleaning your home before you leave for vacation will make your return so much smoother. Let’s be honest; no one enjoys coming home from a trip. It means their relaxing or exhilarating week or weekend is over, and it’s back to the routine of daily life. Making your transition back into the day-to-day stress-free is one way to ease back into it.
