Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency04/08/2015 It’s spring in Hattiesburg and it’s the perfect time to schedule your air conditioner service. The weather is getting warmer and people are getting spring fever. Add lowering your utility bills to your reasons for excitement. You shouldn’t have to worry about your air conditioner’s efficiency whenever 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 pulled together some ideas for you to manage 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 increase your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can combat seasonal allergies by removing dust and dirt built up in your system, which can circulate throughout your house. This clog can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also reducing your system’s efficiency. While scheduled annual air conditioner service clearly offers a lot of benefits, one of the biggest benefits is reducing the possibility of your system needing a most likely costly AC repair. Annual service will keep your systems functioning properly, which extends the life of your unit. Crack a Window There are days where the weather in Hattiesburg is idyllic. And that’s when you can open your windows and let the cool breeze in at night. This lets your air conditioner rest overnight and the following morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside. Make Your Thermostat Work for You Hattiesburg can get hot in the summer. Of course you will want to crank the AC up so you can always walk into a refreshingly cool home. This habit isn’t the best for keeping your system running efficiently because keeping your thermostat set to a higher temperature in the summer is imperative to keeping your utility bills lower. If you can keep the disparity 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 Hattiesburg. You’ll keep both your home and wallet comfortable. Schedule your air conditioner service now and feel the benefits immediately.
