Air Conditioner Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Cooling Costs in Albuquerque10/29/2015There’s no getting around the change of seasons in Albuquerque, it’s something we all have to be ready for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the top of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your cooling system. This, of course, means that it’s the perfect time to schedule annual air conditioner service as well, but probably not in the way that you had thought before. Energy savings comes in various shapes and forms, to include: Air Conditioner Service. Many homeowners strictly associate air conditioner service with swapping out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run more smoothly, providing you with efficient comfort that may help you save on your monthly cooling expenses. Take It Down A Notch. Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can help you save consistently throughout the year. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to operate as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills. Filters. Another quick fix that most every homeowner can take care of on their own, changing air conditioner filters every month or two during the cooling season helps air pass through more easily, making less work for your air conditioner. Defeat Drafts. It’s not hard to lose a lot of your cooled air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to utilize caulk and weatherstripping to close those irritating holes and keep the cool air indoors to enjoy. High Efficiency.
