Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency04/08/2015 It’s spring in Asheville and that means it’s time for your annual air conditioner service. It’s getting warmer and people are getting spring fever. Add lowering your utility bills 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 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 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 battle 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 routine air conditioner service obviously offers a wide-range of benefits, one of the most important benefits is reducing the likelihood of your system needing a potentially costly AC repair. Annual service will keep your systems functioning properly, which helps the life of your system. Crack a Window There are times when the weather in Asheville is idyllic. These are the days when 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 Asheville can really heat up 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 vital to keeping your energy costs down. If you can keep the variation in the outside temperature and your indoor temperature smaller, you will lower your energy use, and therefore your bill. With routine air conditioner service and making minor changes in your routine, it’s easy to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in Asheville. You’ll maintain a comfortable home and a comfortable wallet. Get your air conditioner service scheduled now to gain immediate benefits.
