Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency04/08/2015 It’s spring in Tuscaloosa and that means it’s time for your annual air conditioner service. The temperatures are rising and people are getting spring fever. Why not add some cost savings to your reasons for excitement. You shouldn’t be concerned with your air conditioner’s efficiency whenever 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 manage the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer. Service To be certain 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 battle seasonal allergies by getting rid of 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 annual air conditioner service obviously offers a wide-range of benefits, one of the biggest benefits is reducing the probability of your system needing a potentially costly AC repair. Routine service will keep your systems running properly, which extends the life of your unit. Crack a Window Some days the weather in Tuscaloosa is idyllic. These are the days when you can open your windows and let the cool air come in at night. This lets your air conditioner rest overnight and the next morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside. Make Your Thermostat Work for You Tuscaloosa can get hot 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 difference in the outside temperature and your indoor temperature smaller, you will lower your energy use, and therefore your bill. With routine air conditioner service and making minor changes in your routine, it’s easy to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in Tuscaloosa. You’ll keep your home and your wallet comfortable. Schedule your air conditioner service now and feel the benefits immediately.
