Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency04/08/2015 It’s spring in Columbia and that means it’s time for your annual 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 be concerned with your air conditioner’s efficiency every time you turn it on. You should be able to just revel in the cool air without worrying 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 running 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 eliminating dust and dirt built up in your system, which can circulate throughout your house. This blockage can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also negatively impacting your system’s efficiency. While scheduled regular air conditioner service clearly offers a lot of benefits, one of the most important benefits is reducing the possibility of your system needing a most likely costly AC repair. Regular service will keep your systems functioning properly, which maintains the life of your system. Crack a Window There are times when the weather in Columbia is idyllic. On these days you can open your windows and let the cool breeze 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 Columbia can get steamy in the summer. It only makes sense you’d 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 variation in the outside temperature and your indoor temperature smaller, you will lessen your energy use, and therefore your bill. With annual air conditioner service and making small changes in your routine, it’s no trouble to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in Columbia. You’ll maintain a comfortable home and a comfortable wallet. Get your air conditioner service scheduled now to gain immediate benefits.
