Your air conditioner depends on regular care and attention to stay efficient and keep your home comfortably cool. With scheduled AC maintenance and a few simple actions at home, you can enjoy lower energy costs and cooler temperatures all season long.
Get an AC tune-up. Spring is almost here, and it’s the perfect itme to get your air conditioner ready to go for the summer. A tune-up addresses pre-season maintenance and can help your technician spot any issues that would otherwise leave you uncomfortably warm in the San Antonio summer.
Keep up on regular maintenance. Don’t skimp on the care of your AC. Your air conditioner should at the very least have an annual inspection, such as your springtime tune-up, to ensure it runs well. You may want to schedule a midsummer service just to keep things running at their most efficient.
Get a programmable thermostat. Not only will you save plenty energy and lower your utility costs, but you’ll enjoy a more comfortable home. By tailoring your day and night temperatures, you don’t waste energy when nobody is home and you can still keep things cooler when you are there.
Change your air filters. Your air filters perform important dual functions—they remove allergens and pollutants from your air, and they also keep your air conditioner efficient by promoting maximum airflow. A clogged filter isn’t just bad for your AC, but it negatively impacts your indoor air quality as well. Change your filters about once a month.
Have your ducts inspected and sealed. Your home’s ductwork is another source of pollutants and inefficiency. Dirty ducts filled with dust bunnies and accumulated debris will harbor and spread allergens, and they affect the airflow of your whole system. Leaky ducts lose energy as well - raising your utility costs and lowering the comfort level of your home.
