Stay Cool on Hot Days By Setting It and Forgetting It

Living in Ohio, you know how inconsistent the temperatures outside can be. One day, the air conditioner is up full blast and the next it’s off completely. It can be hard to keep your house at a regulated temperature that is comfortable for the entire family, especially if you’re only turning your AC on the day of high temperatures.

So, how do you prepare your AC for those hot summer days?

Prepare for Hot Temperatures the Night Before

If you’ve checked the weather and you know a hot day is approaching, you can prepare by turning your air conditioner on the night before. Unlike your car, your entire home needs time to get the temperature down to a comfortable setting. Avoid overworking your AC by turning it on the night before hot temperatures approach. This will give your unit enough time to cool down your home.

The “Set It and Forget It” Rule

Nest Thermostat | Forquer Heating and CoolingIf you haven’t already, we recommend investing in a Nest learning thermostat or a “smart thermostat”. A Nest learning thermostat with the ‘set it and forget it’ setting can be the answer to your dreams. You can avoid thermostat battle by setting it to a specific temperature and leaving it alone for the rest of the season – allowing you to be comfortable the minute you walk through the door.

It is much easier for an AC to control humidity when it is left at a specific temperature. Every time the temperature is altered, the AC needs to make an effort to reach the desired level. Not only does this increase the wear and tear of the system but also results in a higher energy consumption. In the U.S., home cooling is the third largest source of energy usage at homes. Proper usage of programmable thermostats can reduce the energy usage by up to 9%.

Perks Of a Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats have some great benefits to offer such as:

  • It picks up your routine, adjusts to specific conditions, offers remote access and shows energy consumption in real-time
  • Interactive touch screen for enhanced usability
  • Option to automatically change heating and cooling
  • Energy efficient monitoring system
  • Remote access from smartphone, tablet or home computer system


Instead of setting the thermostat manually or adding weekly schedules, the smart thermostat learns your habits in a week using sensors and does all the adjustments on its own.

If you are strapped for cash, replacing your air conditioner may be out of the question. You may be thinking you can get away with fixing a leak with Freon R-22, but now youre appalled when you are faced with the price tag that goes along with it. Why is Freon R-22 so expensive? The reality is you are a victim of supply and demand due to the shortage of Freon R-22. You see, nearly 30 years ago the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) ruled that Freon R-22 should be phased out as it contains ingredients that have been shown to deplete the ozone. Since then the EPA has gone on to ban the manufacturing of air conditioners charged with R-22. Additionally, in 2010 they reduced the production of R-22 by 75% and then reduced it further in 2015 to 90%. But that is the least of our worries here in 2017, because in 2020 they will cease all production of R-22. After that only recycled R-22 will be used to service air conditioners. With demand for R-22 growing and production of R-22 on the verge
