Three Simple Additions for Better Air Conditioning

The heat can make it difficult to think clearly. In turn, we end up making things that are relatively simple become overcomplicated. Unfortunately, the heat in Myrtle Beach can have that effect on all of us, leading to solutions that may actually make it warmer at home. Fortunately, there are a few simple things you can add to your home that help you have better air conditioning and more effectively cool your home. In fact, they’re so simple you’ll wonder why you never thought of them yourself. With that in mind, here are a few things you should seriously consider adding to your home to help you have a better air conditioning system:

Window Film

You may get better air conditioning results by installing window film on the windows facing the afternoon sun

Don’t underestimate the amount of heat sunlight can add to your home. This is mostly due to the UV rays that accompany sunlight. Window film or window tints can help minimize the amount of UV rays that enter your home. Another alternative to this would be to install heavy curtains along your windows.

Attic Insulation

If you’re running a central air conditioning system, there’s a good chance you have a duct running through the attic. Unfortunately, the air traveling within this duct can be warmed up by the heat your attic absorbs throughout the day. Have a professional HVAC service, such as Brown & Reaves Services, Inc., install insulation around your attic and the duct.


Exposing your air conditioning system’s condenser to direct sunlight can diminish the system’s efficiency by up to 10 percent. Add a few plants and shrubs near your system’s condenser to provide it with some shade. Keeping the condenser cool makes it easier for the entire system to cool the air that travels through it. Make sure, however, that the foliage you plant are at least four feet away from the condenser to ensure adequate airflow. Also check your unit periodically to make sure it is clear from any fallen tree or bush leaves.
