Air Conditioner Service: Make the Most of Springtime Efficiency04/08/2015 It’s spring in Cedar Rapids and that means it’s time to schedule air conditioner service. The weather is getting warmer and people are getting spring fever. Why not add some cost savings to your reasons for excitement. You shouldn’t be concerned with your air conditioner’s efficiency each time you turn it on. You should be able to just enjoy the cool air without being concerned that you’ve been running it too often. We’ve compiled some ideas for you to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer. Service To make sure your air conditioner is operating at peak efficiency all summer, have an air conditioner service completed on your system right before spring begins. Having air conditioner service completed not only helps increase your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can help fight seasonal allergies by getting rid of dust and dirt built up in your system, which flows throughout your house. This blockage can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also negatively impacting your system’s efficiency. While scheduled annual air conditioner service obviously offers many of benefits, one of the most important benefits is reducing the likelihood of your system needing a possibly costly AC repair. Regular service will keep your systems functioning properly, which helps the life of your system. Crack a Window There are times when the weather in Cedar Rapids is idyllic. And that’s when you can open your windows and let the cool air come in at night. This allows your air conditioner to rest overnight and the next morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside.
