Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency

April 08, 2015

It’s spring in Elk River and it’s the perfect time to schedule your air conditioner service. The weather is getting warmer and people are getting spring fever. You can also add saving some money to your reasons for excitement.

You shouldn’t have to worry about your air conditioner’s efficiency each time you turn it on. You should be able to just appreciate 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.

Service

To make sure 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 done not only helps raise your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can combat seasonal allergies by eliminating dust and dirt built up in your system, which flows throughout your house. This clog can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also reducing your system’s efficiency.

While scheduled regular air conditioner service clearly offers a lot of benefits, one of the most important benefits is reducing the possibility of your system needing a possibly costly AC repair. Annual service will keep your systems operating properly, which maintains the life of your system.

Crack a Window

There are times when the weather in Elk River is idyllic. And that’s when 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 the next morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside.

Make Your Thermostat Work for You

Elk River can get steamy 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 tactic 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 lower your energy use, and therefore your bill.

With annual air conditioner service and making minor changes in your routine, it’s simple to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in Elk River. You’ll keep both your home and wallet comfortable. Get your air conditioner service scheduled now to gain immediate benefits. Call the experts at Home Comfort Heating & Air at 763-276-0617.
