3 Steps for Preparing Your AC Unit for a 4th of July Party, Mukwonago, Wisconsin

If you’re planning a Fourth of July party, there’s plenty to take care of, including getting fuel for the barbecue, buying decorations, and stocking up on burgers and beverages. Preparing your air conditioning system probably isn’t at the top of your to-do list. A smoothly functioning AC unit not only gives your guests much-needed respite from the sizzling summer temperatures, but it also saves you money. Here are a few tips to make sure your cooling unit is ready.

How to Prepare Your AC Unit for a Summer Party

1. Block Out the Sun & Heat

As guests go in and out to use the bathroom or chill in the cool air, your AC unit will have to work harder. Every time a door opens, warm air comes in. Remind guests to close doors behind them. Keep window blinds and shades closed to stop the sun from heating up the indoors even further. 

2. Check the Filters

AC unitMore than 50 million Americans experience allergies every year. There’s a good chance that at least one of your guests falls into this group. Possible triggers include dust mites and pet dander. Your AC’s filter removes these impurities from the air. To prevent giving guests with allergies a runny nose, watery eyes, or scratchy throat, replace the filters before the party.

3. Schedule an AC Unit Maintenance Appointment 

You don’t want the air conditioning to give out in the middle of the party, leaving your guests with no respite from the heat. This isn’t only uncomfortable, but it can also be dangerous as soaring temperatures and sun exposure increase the risk of heat stroke. Schedule a maintenance check before your party to ensure all of the mechanical parts are working correctly.
