It’s spring in the Bay Area and it’s the perfect time to schedule your air conditioner service. It’s getting warmer and people are getting spring fever. You can also add saving some money to your reasons for excitement.
You shouldn’t be concerned with your air conditioner’s efficiency whenever 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 gathered up some ideas for you to maintain the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer.
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 performed not only helps boost 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 be distributed throughout your house. This blockage can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also reducing your system’s efficiency.
While scheduled annual air conditioner service obviously offers a wide-range of benefits, one of the most significant benefits is reducing the possibility of your system needing a most likely costly AC repair. Regular service will keep your systems functioning properly, which helps the life of your system.
Crack a Window
There are days where the weather in the Bay Area is idyllic. On these days you can open your windows and let the cool air come in at night. This gives your air conditioner a chance to rest overnight and in the morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside.
Make Your Thermostat Work for You
the Bay Area can get hot 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 running efficiently because keeping your thermostat set to a higher temperature in the summer is vital to keeping your energy costs lower. If you can keep the variation in the outside temperature and your indoor temperature smaller, you will decrease your energy use, and therefore your bill.
With regular air conditioner service and making minor adjustments in your routine, it’s no trouble to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in the Bay Area. You’ll maintain a comfortable home and a comfortable wallet. Get your air conditioner service scheduled now to gain immediate benefits. Call the experts at Contra Costa Heating & AC at 510-343-9841.
