Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency04/08/2015 It’s spring in Erie and that means it’s time for your annual air conditioner service. It’s getting warmer and people are getting spring fever. You can also add saving some money to your reasons for excitement. You shouldn’t be concerned with your air conditioner’s efficiency each time you turn it on. You should be able to just enjoy the cool air without worrying you’ve been running it too often. We’ve compiled some ideas for you to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer. Service To ensure 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 increase your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can help fight seasonal allergies by eliminating dust and dirt built up in your system, which flows throughout your house. This clog can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also negatively impacting your system’s efficiency. While scheduled regular air conditioner service plainly offers a lot of benefits, one of the most important benefits is reducing the possibility of your system needing a potentially costly AC repair. Annual service will keep your systems functioning properly, which maintains the life of your system. Crack a Window There are days where the weather in Erie is idyllic. On these days 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 Erie 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 operating 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 disparity in the outside temperature and your indoor temperature smaller, you will lower your energy use, and therefore your bill. With annual air conditioner service and making minor adjustments in your routine, it’s easy to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in Erie. You’ll maintain a comfortable home and a comfortable wallet. Schedule your air conditioner service now and feel the benefits immediately.
