Air Conditioner Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Cooling Costs in Elk River

October 29, 2015

There’s no getting around the changing weather in Elk River, it’s something we all have to account for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the forefront of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your cooling system. This, of course, means that it’s the best time to consider annual air conditioner service as well, but maybe not in the way that you had thought before.

Energy savings comes in various shapes and forms, like:

  1. Air Conditioner Service. Many homeowners strictly associate air conditioner service with switching out filters, but having a tune-up performed can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that could help you save on your monthly cooling expenses.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Altering the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can help you save consistently throughout the year. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to operate as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills.
  3. Filters. Another quick fix that most every homeowner can handle on their own, changing air conditioner filters every month or two during the cooling season helps air pass through more smoothly, making less work for your air conditioner.
  4. Defeat Drafts. It’s not difficult to lose a lot of your cooled air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to take advantage of caulk and weatherstripping to close those pesky holes and keep the cool air indoors to enjoy.
  5. High Efficiency. When your Home Comfort Heating & Air pro drops by for your annual air conditioner service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are an upgrade. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping lower your monthly energy costs.

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 Elk River.
