It’s getting warmer and people are getting spring fever. Add lowering your utility bills to your reasons for excitement. You shouldn’t be concerned with your air conditioner’s efficiency every time you turn it on. You should be able to just enjoy the cool air without thinking you’ve been running it too often. We’ve pulled together some ideas for you to regulate the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer. Service To be certain your air conditioner is functioning 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 boost your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can battle seasonal allergies by eliminating dust and dirt built up in your system, which can circulate throughout your house. This blockage can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also negatively impacting your system’s efficiency. While scheduled regular air conditioner service obviously offers a lot of benefits, one of the most important benefits is reducing the probability of your system needing a potentially costly AC repair. Routine service will keep your systems running properly, which helps the life of your system. Crack a Window There are times when the weather in the Upper Rio Grande Valley is idyllic. These are the days when you can open your windows and sleep comfortably with a cool breeze.
