4 Easy Ways to Save Money on Your Air Conditioning

4 Easy Ways to Save Money on Your Air Conditioning

You pay a lot for an air conditioner, but unless you know the system very well, you may not be sure if you are getting your money’s worth. There are all kinds of ways to use an air conditioner that could cost you money, or shorten the lifespan of the equipment. With these tips, you can boost your comfort and your savings.

1. Clean Air Filters

You might be surprised that a system of equipment that costs thousands of dollars can be brought to its knees by some replaceable parts that cost almost nothing and take virtually no time to replace. Yet it is true. Your air conditioner’s air filters remove allergens from the incoming air and keep dirt and debris from infiltrating the entire system. Dirty air filters cannot do a good job, which can make your air conditioner work far less efficiently. To save yourself some money and a lot of hassle, just replace your filters once a season. You will notice a benefit very quickly.

2. Use a Programmable Thermostat

Too many households have a programmable thermostat, but the residents never learned how to use it. Walking up to the thermostat and changing the temperature every time you need it is not an efficient approach to effective cooling, regardless of the kind of thermostat you have. If you get a thermostat that allows you to create a few different settings each day and different settings on the weekends, you may be surprised how much money you could save. Just remember to update the settings as the seasons change.

3. Schedule Yearly Service

The difference between an air conditioner that works pretty well and one that consistently operates at peak efficiency is maintenance. You can only do so much of it on your own unless you are a trained expert. That is why you should call to schedule air conditioner maintenance once a year, preferably in the springtime before summer gets going. Professional upkeep gives your system a thorough inspection, cleans up the components that could get dusty or dirty, and confirms that all parts are in good shape.

4. Get Prompt Air Conditioning Repair

If your yearly service brings up an obvious problem, or if you simply notice that something is not right, you need to get the air conditioner repaired immediately. A slight leak in the refrigerant line may seem like nothing until the expensive evaporator coil starts freezing over as a result. It does not take much to turn a minor repair into a costly replacement, so taking the time to arrange for repairs is always in your best interest.

There is nothing like spending a boatload of money keeping your home cool unless you do not have to. These four tips can shave a fair amount off your monthly energy bills, without forcing you to suffer in a hot, stuffy house. To schedule emergency air conditioning repair service for your Edmonds, WA home, contact the experts at Day & Nite Plumbing & Heating.
