45% of Americans plan on taking a vacation this summer, with an average time away from home of 4 days. Will you be part of that statistic? If you’re one of the lucky ones heading out for a summer vacation you know that packing and planning for your trip is important, but what is equally as important is making sure your home is prepared for your absence.

A common question that we hear from our customers during the summer time is, “Should I turn my air conditioner off when I go on vacation?”


It depends on one important factor: Do you have anything in your home that can be damaged by extreme heat?


Think long and hard about items in your home that could be harmed by keeping your air conditioner off during extremely warm temperatures. Saving money on electricity isn’t worth ruining something expensive/important to you in your home, because of this we strongly recommend keeping your air conditioner turned ON while you head out on a summer vacation.

If you’re worried about saving on energy while you’re gone, follow these air conditioning tips:
