April 08, 2015

It’s spring in Lawrence and that means it’s time for your annual air conditioner service. The weather is getting warmer and people are getting spring fever. You can also add saving some money to your reasons for excitement.

You shouldn’t have to worry about your air conditioner’s efficiency each time you turn it on. You should be able to just appreciate the cool air without being concerned that you’ve been running it too often. We’ve pulled together some ideas for you to manage 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 done not only helps raise 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 be distributed throughout your house. This buildup can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also negatively impacting your system’s efficiency.

While scheduled routine air conditioner service clearly offers many of benefits, one of the biggest benefits is reducing the possibility of your system needing a potentially costly AC repair. Annual service will keep your systems running properly, which helps the life of your system.

Crack a Window

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

Make Your Thermostat Work for You

Lawrence can really heat up 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 tactic isn’t the best for keeping your system operating efficiently because keeping your thermostat set to a higher temperature in the summer is imperative to keeping your energy costs lower. If you can keep the difference in the outside temperature and your indoor temperature smaller, you will decrease your energy use, and therefore your bill.

With regular air conditioner service and making small changes in your routine, it’s easy to keep your air conditioner at max efficiency this summer in Lawrence. You’ll keep your home and your wallet comfortable. For immediate benefits, get your air conditioner service scheduled today. Call the experts at Scott Temperature at 785-269-0465.
