Summer is here, and the weather is heating up! We have already had record high temperatures and it is likely that you’ve already turned on your air conditioner several times. Here are some helpful ways to survive the summer heat and keep your air conditioner working at peak efficiency.
#1: Check the filters.
Your air filters play a huge role in the overall function of your air conditioning system. Check the air filter once a month and replace or clean it as needed. This is especially crucial during the summer air because allergens and dust are circulating even more than usual. If the filter gets full of stuff, the system is required to work harder to cool the air. Cleaning and/or replacing the filter is an easy way to save energy and save money on your AC usage. Not to mention, it is very important in keeping your system working well for years to come.
#2: Get a programmable thermostat.
Programmable thermostats are one of our favorite recent inventions. Not only are they incredibly convenient, they can also save you money. Wireless programmable thermostats can save up to 20% on utility bills, year-round! They work alongside cooling systems, so you can say goodbye to your old thermostat. We are proud to carry several Côr thermostat models including the Original Côr Wi-Fi thermostat, the Côr 5, and the Côr 7. These offer 7-day programmability, Touch-N-Go® features, and the ability to adjust your thermostat while you are away from home.
#3: Call a professional.
Regular AC maintenance is key to keeping your system working as it should. During AC tune-up appointments, we will clean the filters, check to make sure that all of the inner components are working as they should and if we notice any repairs that need to be made, we will talk to you about that and figure out a plan.
Summer should be a time to enjoy the weather and the long days, while staying cool at the same time. Contact us today if you need a AC repair, AC installation, or an AC tune-up! We’re standing by ready to help you stay comfortable all summer long.
