Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency04/08/2015 It’s spring in Thousand Oaks and that means it’s time to schedule 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 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 worrying you’ve been running it too often. We’ve compiled some ideas for you to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer. Service To be certain 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 battle seasonal allergies by removing dust and dirt built up in your system, which flows throughout your house. This blockage can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also reducing your system’s efficiency. While scheduled routine air conditioner service clearly offers a wide-range of benefits, one of the biggest benefits is reducing the likelihood of your system needing a potentially costly AC repair. Regular service will keep your systems functioning properly, which extends the life of your unit. Crack a Window Some days the weather in Thousand Oaks is idyllic. These are the days when you can open your windows and sleep comfortably with a cool breeze. This lets your air conditioner rest overnight and in the morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside. Make Your Thermostat Work for You Thousand Oaks can really heat up in the summer. It’s natural to wish you could 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 of utmost importance to keeping your energy costs down. 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 easy to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in Thousand Oaks. You’ll maintain a comfortable home and a comfortable wallet. For immediate benefits, get your air conditioner service scheduled today.
