During the hot Gretna, Louisiana, summers, it’s important to stay cool in your new home. If you’re a new homeowner, you may not realize common issues that are associated with your home that may cause you headaches if you aren’t properly prepared. Fortunately, most issues are preventable if you know what to look for. 

Uneven Cooling

New homeowners sometimes get frustrated if their home doesn’t cool properly. Before you assume your HVAC system is completely flawed, head through the house and check to make sure all the vents are open and none are covered by furniture, wallpaper, or carpet. Also, make sure you change the air filters in your HVAC system regularly to prevent uneven cooling in your home. If you don’t see an improvement, it’s probably time to call in your HVAC contractor to determine the issue

Power Loss

During the summer, it’s not uncommon to see an increase in power outages as a result of heat and storms. Although it may be alarming to experience a power outage, it’s easy to prepare for this type of issue to reduce the annoyance. Make sure you have an emergency kit filled with flashlights, candles, and canned food. You might also want to consider installing a generator for your home to substantially eliminate issues surrounding a power outage. 

Thermostat Issues

Unless your home is brand new, you may not know when the batteries were last changed in the thermostat. Weak or dead batteries cause a variety of issues that sometimes pose as a broken air conditioner. If your air conditioner isn’t responding to changes in the thermostat, the problem may just be that the batteries are dying. If your air conditioner stops working completely, then your first line of action should be to make sure the batteries aren’t dead in your thermostat.
