Regular Air Conditioning Service Saves Energy, Saves Money

acService

If you’re looking to save money on your air conditioning operating costs, and avoid the potential of higher-priced AC repair bills in the future, the best piece of advice we can give you is to maintain your current air conditioner as best you can — and that means having a reputable air condition service inspect your system at least once a year.

An AC repair shop or AC service professional can extend the life of your cooling system by years just by performing routine maintenance procedures — and, what’s more, a system that’s operating more efficiently will cost less to run, cooling the same area the same amount with less energy. Regular checks, adjustments, and calibration of cooling systems can prevent almost three-fourths of all air conditioning outages; keeping your AC service current ensures you’re operating at optimal performance every time your thermostat calls for cool air.

Speaking of thermostats, the US Department of Energy estimates homeowners can save as much as 25% off their cooling costs simply by installing a programmable thermostat. In addition to regular air condition service, adding a “smart” thermostat — or even installing a system that identifies different “zones” in your home to prioritize which rooms to keep cool — can save a bundle.

A few other ideas for our customers to stay cooler for less:

• Before you leave the house in the morning, close the curtains on your south-facing windows.

• Next time you replace those curtains and blinds, consider lighter colors, even white, to reflect more heat.

• As they burn out, replace your old incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) or LEDs, which put out a tiny fraction of the heat of your old bulbs — and cost far less to operate.

A/C Service Troubleshooting Tales: What’s That Smell?

Sometimes we hear from customers who have turned on their air conditioning for the first time after it’s sat idle – maybe they’ve been out of town, or they’re returning to a vacation property for the first time in months – and it’s producing an unfamiliar and unpleasant smell. There’s little that’s less inviting than a room that’s rapidly filling with an odor you don’t care for; here’s a couple of reasons we’ve found are common culprits to the odd smells that can come out of air conditioners.
Most likely, the problem is simply that your air conditioning filter needs to be cleaned. If you haven’t cleaned your filter in a while, you might be in luck and all you need to do to get rid of the unwanted odor is a straightforward cleaning. Filters can clog up with all sorts of unwanted nasties from pollen to mold, and left to their own devices can create quite a stink. We offer an automated filter reminder service as part of our personalized maintenance reminder schedule; sign up with us and never forget again.

If your filter isn’t the problem, there’s a good chance you’ve got a buildup of mold around your evaporator coil. And while the smell is a problem, the bigger issue is that the coil can suffer permanent damage from the mold, and — if not addressed in a timely fashion — that mold can grow and extend into your home’s ductwork, requiring extensive cleaning and sometimes replacement to take care of the problem.

Regardless, we recommend contacting one of our technicians sooner rather than later to diagnose the problem before any permanent damage is done; we can also provide information about UV light air purifiers we install that can mitigate these sorts of problems and make your air cleaner, and safer.
