Spring is just around the corner, which means warmer weather, which means turning back on your air conditioning. You might not know you need ac maintenance until you turn it on for the first time since October, but we have some tips on how to keep your air conditioner running smoothly from now until the end of the summer months.
With around 87% of American homes having air conditioning, it’s important to keep up with your ac maintenance. As a homeowner, you don’t want the first 75-degree day to be the day that you realize your ac unit is out.
One of the first things you should do to prepare for warmer weather is to change your air filter. Your furnace might have been working overtime this winter to keep up with the frigid temps, so switching out the old, dusty filter for a brand new one will drastically help keep up with your ac maintenance.
By giving your thermostat a set base temperature, your air conditioner unit won’t be working overtime in the hotter months. Finding a comfortable temp and keeping it there will reduce the wear of your air conditioner unit. It’ll also save you money in the long run: you could potentially save up to $180 a year just by adjusting your thermostat to a base temp while you are away from your home or asleep at night.
If you’re looking to save money this spring and summer, our heating and cooling company can help with high-efficiency air conditioning installation. High-efficiency air conditioners can end up reducing energy use by anywhere from 20 to 50%.
