This means that your air conditioner is going to be put to the test when the weather really starts to heat up.

Summer AC Efficiency Tips

Here are some efficiency tips to help your air conditioner out this summer. Try a mixture of a few. If you still find that your air conditioner isn’t giving you what you need, then you can schedule an appointment with our professionals for further air conditioning work.

Turn it Up

Head over to your thermostat and turn the temperature up a few degrees. You might think that you need to turn your thermostat all the way down to the coolest setting possible, but we can assure you that this isn’t really the case.

A lot of people think that heading home in the midst of high temperatures and then setting the temperature to something frosty is going to help their home cool off faster. In reality, it’s only going to make the process of cooling a lot harder on your AC and, let’s face it, you don’t really have your home to be in the 60 degree range for long. It gets cold fast. If you’re really concerned about speed, make sure you contact one of our professionals for help finding a Wi-Fi or smart thermostat.

Change Your Filter

You need to change the air filter in your HVAC system at least once a season. This means that if you haven’t already done so, now is the time for you to head over to your filter and make the swap. This is something that you should be doing about every three months. It’s the only way for you to ensure that your HVAC system stays in great shape throughout the height of every season. This way you can avoid major AC problems this summer.

Schedule a Maintenance Appointment

Make sure that you schedule an appointment with our professionals for your maintenance. If you haven’t already scheduled an appointment for maintenance this summer then you’re doing yourself a major disservice. Maintenance is the warm up before the race for your air conditioner. It’s what’s going to make sure that your AC unit doesn’t pull a metaphorical muscle right before the finish line. Call us to schedule an appointment and learn more about our maintenance program today.
