Your air conditioner isn’t working as well as it should, but you have to wait until payday to call your St. Paul air conditioner repair service. In the meantime, you are struggling to keep your home at a reasonable temperature. There are a few things you can do to help keep the heat at bay.

Your windows are a huge source of heat gain. When the blazing sun shines directly into your house, it brings with it plenty of heat. You could get solar screens to deflect the heat from your home, or you could close the curtains to keep the sun out.

You might have very could seals around your windows and doors that keep the cold air in and the hot air out, but you could be overseeing obvious leaks that are sucking the cold right out from under you. You could have a problem with big leaks, like the one between your crawl space and the inside of your home. Look for these leaks and fix them up with weatherstripping.

You may say you change your air filters with regularity, but this might not be the reality. Think about it, do you really have the oil in your car changed every 3,000 miles on the dot? Unlikely. You get it at four or even 5 thousand miles. But a filter is different than an oil change and changing it out more often might keep your home cooler.

Hang in there and give us a call when you can and we will get your air conditioner up and running so you can be comfortable again.
