April 08, 2015

It’s spring in Moline and that means it’s time for your annual 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 think about your air conditioner’s efficiency every time you turn it on. You should be able to just enjoy the cool air without being concerned that you’ve been running it too often. We’ve compiled 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 completed not only helps boost your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can help fight seasonal allergies by removing 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 hindering your system’s efficiency.

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

Crack a Window

There are days where the weather in Moline is idyllic. On these days you can open your windows and let the cool breeze in at night. This allows your air conditioner to rest overnight and the next morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside.

Make Your Thermostat Work for You

Moline 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 strategy isn’t the best for keeping your system running efficiently because keeping your thermostat set to a higher temperature in the summer is vital to keeping your energy costs down. 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.

You’ll keep both your home and wallet comfortable. For immediate benefits, get your air conditioner service scheduled today. Call the experts at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning at 309-323-9584.
