Air Conditioner Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Cooling Costs in Pinellas County10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing weather in Pinellas County, it’s something we all have to adjust 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 ideal time to consider annual air conditioner service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had possibly thought. Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, to include: Air Conditioner Service. Many homeowners strictly associate air conditioner service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up performed can help your system run smoother, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly cooling costs. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can help you save consistently throughout the year. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to run as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy expenses. Filters. Another simple fix that most every homeowner can complete on their own, switching 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 easy to lose a lot of your cooled air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to use caulk and weatherstripping to close those irritating holes and keep the cool air indoors to enjoy. High Efficiency. When your Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc technician stops by for your annual air conditioner service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are an upgrade. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping decrease your monthly energy costs. Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list the end-all be-all, but there are a few easy ways to help boost your comfort when the temperatures drop in Pinellas County.
