As the Canada Day long weekend and festivities approach, The Heating Ninja is here to ensure you stay cool and comfortable while celebrating. With over 15 years of experience in the HVAC industry, we pride ourselves on delivering the best heating and cooling services to Calgary and the surrounding areas.

Our mission is to provide expert advice and reliable solutions to keep your home comfortable, regardless of season. Here are some practical tips to help you maintain a cool and enjoyable environment this Canada Day.

Stay Hydrated to Reduce Cooling Needs

Staying hydrated can help reduce the load on your air conditioning system. Drinking cold water throughout the day keeps you refreshed and helps lower your body temperature. When your body is cooler, you won’t need to turn down the thermostat as much, reducing the strain on your HVAC system.

You benefit from improved health and a cooler indoor environment by maintaining good hydration, making it a simple yet effective way to ease the pressure on your air conditioner.

Keep Air Filters Clean for Optimal Performance

Air filters are crucial for the efficiency of your air conditioning system. Dirty filters restrict airflow, making it harder for your unit to cool your home effectively. This is especially important during Canada Day celebrations when you might have more guests and increased indoor activity.
To ensure your air conditioner runs smoothly, regularly check and replace your air filters, ideally every 90 days.

If you’re hosting an event, it’s a good idea to inspect the filters beforehand to avoid unnecessary strain on your system and keep the air quality high.

Don’t Skip Preventative Maintenance

Planning to host a big Canada Day party? The last thing you want is for your air conditioning to fail with a house full of guests. Regular maintenance helps to prevent breakdowns and keeps your system running at peak performance. Schedule an annual service call to have your air conditioning unit cleaned, inspected, and serviced.

Consider cleaning your air ducts every three years to maintain efficient airflow and quality. Staying on top of maintenance helps avoid disruptions and keeps your home cool and comfortable for all your celebrations.

Optimize Thermostat Settings

Adjusting your thermostat accordingly can impact your energy consumption and comfort levels. On hot days, set your thermostat a few degrees higher than usual to reduce the workload on your air conditioning unit. Install and use a programmable thermostat to adjust the temperature automatically when you’re away from home or at night helps you save money while keeping your home cool when it matters most.

Use Fans to Improve Air Circulation

Fans are a great way to enhance air circulation and help your air conditioner work more efficiently. Ceiling fans, in particular, can create a cooling breeze that makes the air feel cooler than it is. Use fans along with your AC to distribute the cool air around your space and reduce the need to lower the thermostat. This improves comfort and helps reduce energy costs and the strain on your HVAC system.

Shade Your Home to Keep it Cool

Simple actions like closing blinds or curtains during peak temperatures during the day can significantly reduce the heat entering your home. Using reflective window coverings or planting trees and shrubs around your home can also help block out the sun’s heat, keeping your home cooler naturally. By reducing the heat load, your air conditioning system doesn’t have to work as hard, leading to better efficiency and lower energy bills.
