Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency04/08/2015 It’s spring in West Columbia and that means it’s time to schedule air conditioner service. The temperatures are rising and people are getting spring fever. Add lowering your utility bills to your reasons for excitement. You shouldn’t have to worry about your air conditioner’s efficiency whenever you turn it on. You should be able to just revel in the cool air without thinking you’ve been running it too often. We’ve gathered up some ideas for you to regulate the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer. Service To make sure your air conditioner is functioning at peak efficiency all summer, have an air conditioner service completed on your system right before spring begins. Having air conditioner service completed not only helps boost your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can combat seasonal allergies by getting rid of dust and dirt built up in your system, which can be distributed throughout your house. This buildup can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also hindering your system’s efficiency. While scheduled regular air conditioner service obviously offers a lot of benefits, one of the most important benefits is reducing the probability of your system needing a most likely costly AC repair. Regular service will keep your systems operating properly, which maintains the life of your system. Crack a Window There are times when the weather in West Columbia is idyllic. And that’s when you can open your windows and let the cool air come in at night. This gives your air conditioner a chance to rest overnight and the following morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside. Make Your Thermostat Work for You West Columbia can really heat up in the summer. Of course you will want to crank the AC up so you can always walk into a refreshingly cool home. This strategy isn’t the best for keeping your system operating efficiently because keeping your thermostat set to a higher temperature in the summer is vital to keeping your utility bills lower. If you can keep the disparity in the outside temperature and your indoor temperature smaller, you will decrease your energy use, and therefore your bill. With routine air conditioner service and making small changes in your routine, it’s simple to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in West Columbia. You’ll maintain a comfortable home and a comfortable wallet. Schedule your air conditioner service now and feel the benefits immediately.
