What helps reduce air conditioner repairs?
The warmer months are when many homeowners in need of AC repairs turn to us. During the hot summer months, we get busier and busier, which is why we wanted to share some helpful information with our customers on how to reduce AC repair costs.
Using preventive measures before it gets too hot outside and AC repairs become necessary, you can save yourself a lot of money and frustration. Of course, if you find your air conditioner isn't working correctly, don't hesitate to contact us so we can get out there quickly and correct the problem for you.
What helps reduce air conditioner repairs? Here's what we suggest:
Set Your Thermostat at 78 Degrees: This tip might sound like common sense, but if you have a programmable thermostat, make sure to set it at 78 degrees when you're home and 85 degrees when you're not. Not only will this keep you more comfortable, but it will also help your air conditioner run more efficiently and reduce the number of repairs needed.
Clean Your Filters: A dirty filter can restrict airflow and cause your AC unit to work harder than necessary, resulting in increased energy usage and potential repairs. Make sure to clean or replace your filters every month (or as needed) to help reduce repair costs.
Keep the Area Around Your Unit Clear: Ensure nothing obstructs your air conditioner's intake or exhaust vents. Blocking these vents will reduce the unit's efficiency and cause your AC to work even more complicated than usual, leading to increased energy usage (and air conditioner repairs).
- Check Your Condenser: It can get dirty as leaves, and other debris accumulate if the condenser is located outside. Keep your condenser free of anything that could restrict airflow around it, and make sure to hose off any residue or dust regularly. This will help keep your AC running all summer smoothly long.
If you follow these helpful tips, we think you'll find this summer is a lot more bearable – and affordable!
