4 Ways To Show Some Love To Your AC System
With Valentine’s Day this month, love is in the air! Why not spread the joy and show a little love for your air conditioning system?
The “coolest” thing about giving your system a little TLC, is it will reciprocate in the form of fewer repairs and lower utility bills. And better yet – no need to buy a box of chocolates or jewelry!
Here are a few suggestions to show your system you care:
Show Your AC System Love With A Clean Filter
For those of us here year-round, we can show our AC system some love by replacing our air filters once a month, especially during the summer.
A clean air filter protects you and your equipment from dust and debris. In return, you save money with minimal AC repairs and lower energy bills.
Insulate To Show Your AC Some Love
Give your system a little love by ensuring your attic is properly insulated. In addition to reducing energy loss, insulating will help maintain steady temperatures in your home keeping your family comfortable.
Adequate insulation also means your system will not run as often, which results in less wear and tear on your unit along with fewer AC repairs.
Love Your AC By Opening Vents
Let’s just be honest – it seems reasonable to close vents in unused rooms to save money. BUT BEWARE – this is a MYTH. In reality, the opposite is true.
Closing vents will not save you money; instead, it typically will cost you more. This innocent, but incorrect action, causes your system to work significantly harder which can lead to other issues, like damaged components in your system.
To show you care, keep your vents open and all the return grilles free of obstruction.
Love Your AC With Regular Tune-Ups
Just like your car, your AC system shows you unconditional love 24/7 without needing praise or attention. However, the key to keeping your system delivering this love is regular maintenance. Routine maintenance allows the professionals to find, diagnose and fix small issues before they become major repairs.
In return you get a healthier system with a longer life span, lower energy bills, and a warranty in good standing.
