Some Helpful Air Conditioning Tips

Here are some helpful tips that can help you get more from your air conditioner while saving a little money in the process.

Turn the Temperature Up

We know what you’re thinking—why in the world would I turn the temperature up when it’s already hot outside. Well, have you ever heard the phrase “your eyes are bigger than your stomach?” Sometimes, you might come home from some warm weather outdoor and think that you need the coldest temperature possible because you’re so hot. In reality, this usually isn’t the case.

Think about how many times you’ve set your thermostat to a temperature in the 60s and then regretted about 20 minutes later when your home turned freezing cold. It’s always best to set your home’s thermostat to a mild temperature and wait a little. It’s also beneficial for your AC system. You don’t want to run your unit into the ground with hasty operation.

Upgrade Your Thermostat

Your thermostat is important, so we want to talk about one more important aspect concerning this system—the type of thermostat that you have at home. Do you have an old, outdated thermostat? If it looks like a clunky piece of plastic with no digital face, then the answer is “yes.”

Honestly speaking here, you’re still not getting the thermostat you need even if you have a digital thermostat. A smart thermostat or a Wi-Fi thermostat is the way to go. Let us guide you in the right direction. We’ll help you get the perfect unit.

Change Out Your Air Filter

Have you changed out your home’s air filter yet? If you haven’t, then it’s time for you to do so now. Changing your air filter is just as important as scheduling an appointment for maintenance or calling a professional when you need work that’s a little more extensive. Changing out your air filter is what’s going to prime your air conditioner. A fresh air filter helps your air conditioner stay clean and ready to operate when you need it most. An old, dirty air filter can actually put more strain on your air conditioner and tilt you in the direction of an air conditioning repair problem.
