Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency04/08/2015 Springtime in Utica can mean a lot of things, but one of the most important should be air conditioner service. It’s a time of excitement because the chilly weather is finally gone and warmer weather is becoming more common, so why not save a bit of money while you’re at it? Switching on your air conditioner can feel awfully nice for a host of reasons, but there shouldn’t be concern over the amount that you’re utilizing. That’s why we’ve put together a few things for you to consider so you can make the most of your springtime efficiency this year. Service Having air conditioner service performed on your system right before spring starts can help ensure that your air conditioner will be working at peak efficiency when you flip the switch on your thermostat for a few months. Whether it’s dirt, dust or some other type of annoyance, air conditioner service not only helps increase your system’s efficiency, but can help combat seasonal allergies. Dust can accumulate in your system over time and circulate a host of allergens throughout your house, causing everything from respiratory discomfort to reduced system efficiency. As you can tell, arranging routine air conditioner service has a variety of positive bonuses, but one of the best is that it can lessen the need for costly AC repair. Keeping your system working at a high level helps extend the lifespan of your system and could assist in preventing common issues during the cooling season. Crack a Window The weather in Utica can certainly feel ideal some days. It’s on these days where you can use the cooler air outside while you sleep. Not only does it give your air conditioner a rest, but it allows you to retain that cooler air the next morning when you shut your windows. Make Your Thermostat Work for You When the summer temperatures get their warmest in Utica, it can be easy to want a home that feels nice and cool when you come in the door. Of course that isn’t desired when it comes to energy savings and efficiency. Changing your thermostat to a higher temperature during the summer is the key to keeping your energy costs lower. The smaller the difference between the outdoor temperature and indoor temperature, the lower your energy consumption and costs. Whether it’s through scheduled air conditioner service or cracking a window at night, maintaining high efficiency throughout the cooling season in Utica can keep your wallet a little fuller and keep you comfortable too. Now is the time to get your air conditioner service scheduled so that you can receive the benefits the longest.
