Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency

April 08, 2015

It’s spring in Portland and it’s the perfect time to schedule your air conditioner service. The weather is getting warmer and people are getting spring fever. Why not add some cost savings to your reasons for excitement.

You shouldn’t have to think about your air conditioner’s efficiency each time you turn it on. You should be able to just revel in the cool air without worrying you’ve been running it too often. We’ve gathered up some ideas for you to maintain the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer.

Service

To ensure 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 performed not only helps raise your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can help fight seasonal allergies by eliminating dust and dirt built up in your system, which can be distributed throughout your house. This buildup can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also reducing your system’s efficiency.

While scheduled annual air conditioner service plainly offers many of benefits, one of the most significant benefits is reducing the probability of your system needing a potentially costly AC repair. Annual service will keep your systems functioning properly, which extends the life of your unit.

Crack a Window

There are times when the weather in Portland is idyllic. These are the days when you can open your windows and let the cool breeze in at night. This lets your air conditioner rest overnight and the next morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside.

Make Your Thermostat Work for You

Portland can really heat up in the summer. Of course you will want to crank the AC up so you can always walk into a refreshingly cool home. This tactic isn’t the best for keeping your system functioning efficiently because keeping your thermostat set to a higher temperature in the summer is imperative to keeping your energy costs down. If you can keep the disparity in the outside temperature and your indoor temperature smaller, you will decrease your energy use, and therefore your bill.

With routine air conditioner service and making minor changes in your routine, it’s easy to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in Portland. You’ll maintain a comfortable home and a comfortable wallet. Schedule your air conditioner service now and feel the benefits immediately.
