Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency04/08/2015 It’s spring in Lexington and it’s the perfect time to schedule your air conditioner service. The temperatures are rising 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 revel in the cool air without thinking you’ve been running it too often. We’ve gathered up some ideas for you to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer. Service To be certain 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 done 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 can circulate throughout your house. This buildup can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also reducing your system’s efficiency. While scheduled routine air conditioner service obviously offers a lot of benefits, one of the most important benefits is reducing the possibility of your system needing a potentially costly AC repair. Routine service will keep your systems running properly, which helps the life of your system. Crack a Window Some days the weather in Lexington is idyllic. These are the days when you can open your windows and let the cool breeze in at night. This allows your air conditioner to rest overnight and in the morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside. Make Your Thermostat Work for You Lexington can get hot in the summer. It only makes sense you’d want to crank the AC up so you can always walk into a refreshingly cool home. This strategy 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 lessen your energy use, and therefore your bill. With annual air conditioner service and making minor changes in your routine, it’s no trouble to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in Lexington. You’ll maintain a comfortable home and a comfortable wallet. Schedule your air conditioner service now and feel the benefits immediately.
