Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency04/08/2015 It’s spring in Colfax and it’s the perfect time to schedule your 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 worry about 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 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 completed not only helps raise your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can combat 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 annual air conditioner service clearly offers a wide-range of benefits, one of the biggest benefits is reducing the possibility of your system needing a potentially costly AC repair. Annual service will keep your systems operating properly, which maintains the life of your system. Crack a Window There are days where the weather in Colfax is idyllic. On these days you can open your windows and let the cool air come in at night. This lets your air conditioner rest overnight and the following morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside. Make Your Thermostat Work for You Colfax 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 tactic 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 energy costs lower. If you can keep the difference in the outside temperature and your indoor temperature smaller, you will decrease 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 Colfax. You’ll keep your home and your wallet comfortable. Schedule your air conditioner service now and feel the benefits immediately.
