Air Conditioner Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Cooling Costs in Orange County10/29/2015There’s no getting around the change of seasons in Orange County, it’s something we all have to adjust for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the front of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your cooling system. This, of course, means that it’s the ideal time to consider annual air conditioner service as well, but maybe not in the way that you had possibly thought. Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, like: Air Conditioner Service. Many homeowners strictly associate air conditioner service with swapping out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run smoother, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly cooling bills. Take It Down A Notch. Altering the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can help you save consistently during the year. It’s pretty clear, but when your system doesn’t have to run as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills. Filters. Another quick fix that most every homeowner can handle on their own, changing air conditioner filters every month or two during the cooling season helps air pass through more smoothly, making less work for your air conditioner. Defeat Drafts. It’s not difficult to lose a lot of your cooled air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to use caulk and weatherstripping to close those pesky holes and keep the cool air indoors to enjoy. High Efficiency.
