The weather is getting warmer and people are getting spring fever. Why not add some cost savings to your reasons for excitement. You shouldn’t have to worry about your air conditioner’s efficiency every time you turn it on. You should be able to just appreciate the cool air without being concerned that you’ve been running it too often. We’ve pulled together some ideas for you to regulate the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer. Service To make sure your air conditioner is operating at peak efficiency all summer, have an air conditioner service completed on your system right before spring begins. Having air conditioner service done not only helps raise your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can help fight seasonal allergies by getting rid of dust and dirt built up in your system, which can circulate throughout your house. This buildup can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also reducing your system’s efficiency. While scheduled regular air conditioner service clearly offers many of benefits, one of the most important benefits is reducing the likelihood of your system needing a possibly costly AC repair. Routine service will keep your systems running properly, which maintains the life of your system. Crack a Window There are times when the weather in Augusta is idyllic. On these days you can open your windows and let the cool breeze in at night. This allows your air conditioner to rest overnight and in the morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside. Make Your Thermostat Work for You Augusta can get steamy in the summer. It’s natural to wish you could crank the AC up so you can always walk into a refreshingly cool home. This habit isn’t the best for keeping your system functioning efficiently because keeping your thermostat set to a higher temperature in the summer is imperative to keeping your energy costs lower. If you can keep the variation in the outside temperature and your indoor temperature smaller, you will lower your energy use, and therefore your bill. With regular air conditioner service and making minor changes in your routine, it’s simple to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in Augusta. You’ll maintain a comfortable home and a comfortable wallet. For immediate benefits, get your air conditioner service scheduled today.
