5 Ways To Beat The North Dallas Heat


If you’re in the Plano or North Dallas area, it’s time to brace for the next few months ahead. As a premier HVAC company serving Plano, we know a thing or two about creating the coolest (pun intended) home on the block for our clients during the summer!


It's essential to explore energy-efficient strategies to maintain a cool and comfortable living situation, so here are five proven techniques you can use to reduce your cooling costs.


Install Energy-Efficient Cooling Systems

If your existing air conditioning system is outdated or you’ve fallen behind on regularly scheduled maintenance visits, it’s likely consuming more power than necessary. Our HVAC professionals at Hesse Air guide you through upgrading to an energy-efficient model that best suits your home's size and your personal needs.


Maintain Your Cooling System Regularly

Regular maintenance ensures that your climate control system operates at its peak efficiency. This includes cleaning or replacing filters, checking for duct leaks, and ensuring the condenser and evaporator coils are clean. You can rest easy knowing you'll save time and money in the long run.


Update Your Insulation

Efficient insulation keeps your home warm in winter and helps it stay cool in summer by reducing heat transfer. Hiring Hesse Air can be invaluable for this task because our team of experts can identify areas with poor insulation and upgrade issues as needed.


Leverage Natural Ventilation

Often, the simplest methods are incredibly effective. Consider opening your windows once the sun sets and the evening breeze comes rolling in. The cooler air will lower your home's temperature and reduce the need for running the HVAC system at nighttime. When you wake up, close the windows to keep the warm air out and lower the shades to create an insulating air pocket between the window treatment and the window with cool air trapped between them.


Use Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans help circulate air, creating a wind-chill effect that makes the room feel cooler. While fans do use electricity, their consumption is minimal compared to a traditional heating or cooling system. They can be used independently on moderately warm days or in tandem with your AC on sweltering days.


By combining DIY methods with Hesse Air, you can beat the scorching summer heat without a steep energy bill. A more energy-efficient home is not only a money saver but a step toward a more sustainable lifestyle. Contact our team or call us to schedule a home visit today.
