      How to Cool Old Homes Effectively

      Ancestral homes are exceptionally challenging to cool because their outdated design doesn’t match modern HVAC systems. As a result, heating and cooling systems consume a lot more energy.  

      How to Cool Old Homes Effectively

      However, efficiently cooling old homes isn’t impossible. Air conditioning repair experts recommend the following tips to cool an old property and make it more comfortable and energy-efficient.


      In winter, good insulation keeps heat indoors while repelling the cooler outdoor temperatures. In summer, it prevents excess heat from seeping into your home. That said, make sure you have sufficient insulation to complement your HVAC system. You can use blow-in or traditional rolled insulation to achieve optimal performance.

      Reflective Tin Foils

      You can improve your old home’s capacity for heat retention by attaching a reflective heat foil to the wall behind the radiator. The foil will reflect all excess heat that the wall absorbs. Doing so maximizes its heating efficiency.

      Programmable Thermostats

      Smart thermostats can cool or heat your property depending on the indoor temperature. Consider replacing old thermostats so that you can customize your thermostat settings and automate your home’s cooling and heating. This will help you save on energy bills. Talk to your trusted air conditioning maintenance contractor regarding the best programmable thermostats for your home.


      Small gaps in the walls of your property create drafts. Call a professional to help you find these gaps in your home and apply caulk or foam insulation to seal off the holes.

      Using Fans

      Electric fans do not consume too much energy and facilitate air movement into various parts of your room. Doing this allows you to shut down your HVAC during the night.

      Whether your HVAC needs a tune-up or you need a pro to handle your air conditioning installation, always trust NATE-certified technicians to do an excellent job.
