Air Conditioner Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Cooling Costs in Sylmar10/29/2015There’s no getting around the change of seasons in Sylmar, it’s something we all have to be ready for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the front of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your cooling system. This, of course, means that it’s the ideal time to think about annual air conditioner service as well, but probably not in the way that you had possibly thought. Energy savings comes in various shapes and forms, to include: Air Conditioner Service. Many homeowners only associate air conditioner service with switching out filters, but having a tune-up completed can help your system run better, 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 handful of degrees can help you save consistently month after month. It’s pretty evident, but when your system doesn’t have to work as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy costs. Filters. Another quick fix that most every homeowner can take care of on their own, swapping air conditioner filters every month or two during the cooling season helps air pass through more effortlessly, 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 take advantage of caulk and weatherstripping to close those irritating holes and keep the cool air indoors to enjoy.
