Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency04/08/2015 It’s spring in Scottsboro and that means it’s time to schedule 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 every time 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 make sure 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 help fight seasonal allergies by eliminating dust and dirt built up in your system, which can circulate throughout your house. This buildup can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also hindering your system’s efficiency. While scheduled annual air conditioner service plainly offers a wide-range of benefits, one of the most significant benefits is reducing the probability of your system needing a most likely costly AC repair. Annual service will keep your systems running properly, which extends the life of your unit. Crack a Window There are days where the weather in Scottsboro is idyllic. And that’s when you can open your windows and let the cool breeze 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 Scottsboro can get hot 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 functioning 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 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 simple to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in Scottsboro. You’ll keep both your home and wallet comfortable. Schedule your air conditioner service now and feel the benefits immediately.
