Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency

April 08, 2015

It’s spring in Tuscaloosa and that means it’s time to schedule air conditioner service. The temperatures are rising and people are getting spring fever. You can also add saving some money to your reasons for excitement.

You shouldn’t have to think about your air conditioner’s efficiency every time you turn it on. You should be able to just enjoy the cool air without thinking 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 running at peak efficiency all summer, have an air conditioner service completed on your system right before spring begins. Having air conditioner service performed not only helps raise 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 can circulate 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 possibly costly AC repair. Routine service will keep your systems operating properly, which extends the life of your unit.

Crack a Window

There are days where 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 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

Tuscaloosa can really heat up 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 strategy isn’t the best for keeping your system operating efficiently because keeping your thermostat set to a higher temperature in the summer is of utmost importance to keeping your utility bills lower. If you can keep the variation 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 minor changes in your routine, it’s no trouble 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. Call the experts at KDM Service Corporation at 205-208-8090.
