Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency

April 08, 2015

Springtime in Anchorage can mean a number of things, but one of the most important should be air conditioner service. It’s a time of excitement because the chilly weather is finally gone and warmer weather is becoming more common, so why not save a bit of money while you’re at it?

Switching on your air conditioner can feel awfully nice for a variety of reasons, but there shouldn’t be apprehension over the amount that you’re taking advantage of. That’s why we’ve put together a couple of things for you to ponder so you can make the most of your springtime efficiency this year.

Service

Having air conditioner service performed on your system right before spring starts can help make sure that your air conditioner will be working at top efficiency when you flip the switch on your thermostat for good. Whether it’s dirt, dust or some other type of annoyance, air conditioner service not only helps increase your system’s efficiency, but can help take on seasonal allergies. Dust can accumulate in your system over time and circulate a host of allergens throughout your house, causing everything from respiratory discomfort to lowered system efficiency.

As you can tell, arranging routine air conditioner service has a number of positive bonuses, but one of the biggest is that it can lessen the need for costly AC repair. Keeping your system operating at a high level helps extend the lifespan of your system and may assist in preventing common problems during the cooling season.

Crack a Window

The weather in Anchorage can certainly feel perfect some days. It’s on these days where you can take advantage of the cooler air outside while you snooze. Not only does it give your air conditioner a break, but it allows you to capture that cooler air the next morning when you shut your windows.

Make Your Thermostat Work for You

When the summer temperatures get their warmest in Anchorage, it can be easy to want a home that feels nice and cool when you get in the door. Of course that isn’t preferred when it comes to energy savings and efficiency. Changing your thermostat to a higher temperature during the summer is the key to keeping your energy costs down. The smaller the difference between the outdoor temperature and indoor temperature, the lower your energy consumption and costs.

Whether it’s through routine air conditioner service or cracking a window at night, maintaining high efficiency throughout the cooling season in Anchorage can keep your wallet a little fuller and keep you comfortable too. Now is the time to get your air conditioner service scheduled so that you can take advantage of the benefits the longest.
