Prepare for a Las Vegas Summer

Summer Is Coming... Are You Ready?

Sierra Air Conditioning & Heating offers the following low- or no-cost tips to ensure your home is more energy efficient and comfortable during the dog days of summer in Las Vegas:

  • Use a programmable thermostat - by having the temperature at a constant setting that automatically adjusts according to your usage you can save up to 10% annually on your cooling costs.

  • Constant fan - For less room temperature variability and cleaner air, run the fan on your furnace continuously throughout the summer.

  • Have adequate attic insulation - increase if less than 5 inches.

  • Seal cracks and openings in foundations, around windows, doors and electrical outlets with caulking or weather stripping.

  • Seal leaking ducts and insulate - especially ductwork in crawlspaces, attics or garages.

  • Adjust registers - Because hot air rises and cold air falls, leave upper floor registers open in summer and partially or completely close registers on lower floors.

  • Check cold air returns - There should be at least 6 inches of space between furniture or objects and cold air returns.

  • Turn off electronic equipment such as TVs, computers, ovens, and lamps that put off a lot of heat when not in use.

  • Keep the heat and sunlight out by adjusting drapes on windows facing the direct sun during the day.

  • Landscape for efficiency - use plantings to block sun exposure

  • Clean or replace filters monthly - dirty filters cost money.

  • Keep outdoor units free from debris - accessible fresh air is important for efficiency.

  • Schedule annual maintenance - Last but most important, keep your system running at its best by having an annual check-up!
