Air Conditioner Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Cooling Costs in Thousand Oaks10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Thousand Oaks, it’s something we all have to be ready for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the top of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your cooling system. This, of course, means that it’s the ideal time to schedule annual air conditioner service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had possibly thought. Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, to include: Air Conditioner Service. Many homeowners strictly associate air conditioner service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up performed can help your system run more smoothly, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly cooling expenses. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees may help you save consistently throughout the year. It’s pretty clear, but when your system doesn’t have to run as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy costs. Filters. Another easy fix that most every homeowner can complete on their own, switching air conditioner filters every month or two during the cooling season helps air pass through more effortlessly, making less work for your air conditioner. Defeat Drafts. It’s easy to lose a lot of your cooled air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to utilize caulk and weatherstripping to close those irritating holes and keep the cool air indoors to enjoy. High Efficiency. When your Air Max HVAC Inc technician stops by for your annual air conditioner service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are out there. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping lower your monthly energy bills. Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list the end-all be-all, but there are a few basic ways to help increase your comfort when the temperatures dip in Thousand Oaks.
