Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency04/08/2015 It’s spring in Rapid City and that means it’s time to schedule air conditioner service. It’s getting warmer and people are getting spring fever. Add lowering your utility bills 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 appreciate the cool air without worrying you’ve been running it too often. We’ve compiled some ideas for you to regulate the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer. Service To be certain your air conditioner is running 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 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 be distributed throughout your house. This blockage can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also hindering your system’s efficiency. While scheduled regular air conditioner service plainly offers a lot of benefits, one of the most significant benefits is reducing the likelihood of your system needing a potentially costly AC repair. Routine service will keep your systems operating properly, which helps the life of your system. Crack a Window There are times when the weather in Rapid City is idyllic. And that’s when you can open your windows and sleep comfortably with a cool breeze. This gives your air conditioner a chance to rest overnight and the following morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside. Make Your Thermostat Work for You Rapid City can get hot in the summer. It only makes sense you’d 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 operating efficiently because keeping your thermostat set to a higher temperature in the summer is vital to keeping your energy costs lower. If you can keep the variation in the outside temperature and your indoor temperature smaller, you will lower your energy use, and therefore your bill. With annual air conditioner service and making small changes in your routine, it’s easy to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in Rapid City. You’ll keep your home and your wallet comfortable. For immediate benefits, get your air conditioner service scheduled today.
