Summer is almost here. If you're starting to plan your summertime calendar, here's a sneak peak at the 2017 summer weather forecast, so you can make the most of every day.
Stay Cool and Comfortable All Summer Long
Summertime is a great time for family vacations, backyard cookouts, relaxing with friends, and soaking up the sun. But depending upon where you live, summer can serve up a very different mix of temperatures and weather conditions. Here's a look at the 2017 summer weather predictions for different areas in the U.S. — along with some helpful information on how to stay cool and energy efficient, no matter where you live.
Cooler-than-average temperatures are expected in portions of the northern U.S. from June to August. Since you may not know how much air conditioning you'll need during the summer, it's a good idea to get an HVAC maintenance check performed to ensure the system is running at peak performance and efficiency. During the maintenance check, quite a few routine services will be performed, these services can include:
- Charging refrigerant
- Fan motor cleaning & inspection
- Coil cleaning
- Blower cleanout
- Cleaning of the air conditioner coils
- Checking all major components and safety devices
- Making sure all electrical connections are sound and components are working properly
- Checking for secure physical connections of individual parts
Remember to book your maintenance appointment before summer starts, when HVAC service technicians are often at their busiest.
The eastern U.S. will see the highest chance for warmer-than-average temperatures early in the summer. This warming trend will continue through July and August, with the East experiencing near or slightly above average temperatures for the time of year. To ensure you're prepared for these sustained high temperatures, remember to schedule an HVAC summer maintenance check with your local Lennox® Dealer. Not only will the Lennox Dealer perform a thorough check of your HVAC system, they can also troubleshoot and take care of any minor problems before they become a major issue.
