Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency

April 08, 2015

It’s spring in Arlington and it’s the perfect time to schedule your air conditioner service. The temperatures are rising and people are getting spring fever. Add lowering your utility bills to your reasons for excitement.

You shouldn’t have to think about your air conditioner’s efficiency whenever you turn it on. You should be able to just appreciate the cool air without thinking you’ve been running it too often. We’ve compiled some ideas for you to maintain the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer.

Service

To ensure 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 performed not only helps raise your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can combat seasonal allergies by removing 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 routine air conditioner service plainly offers a lot of benefits, one of the most significant benefits is reducing the likelihood of your system needing a most likely costly AC repair. Routine service will keep your systems operating properly, which extends the life of your unit.

Crack a Window

There are times when the weather in Arlington 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

Arlington can get steamy in the summer. Of course you will want to crank the AC up so you can always walk into a refreshingly cool home. This habit isn’t the best for keeping your system functioning efficiently because keeping your thermostat set to a higher temperature in the summer is of utmost importance to keeping your energy costs lower. If you can keep the disparity 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 minor adjustments in your routine, it’s simple to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in Arlington. You’ll maintain a comfortable home and a comfortable wallet. Get your air conditioner service scheduled now to gain immediate benefits.
