The answer is first and foremost professional air conditioner service that touts a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we definitely wouldn’t dispute the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a few things you can try yourself.
At Boehmers/Cronin Emery Home Services by Enercare, we think it’s fantastic that you want to save some on your monthly heating and cooling costs, which is why we assembled this list for you to consider:
- Switch out your home’s air filter. It’s likely the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a big difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it difficult for your air conditioner to do its job – which means your comfort suffers.
- Seal your home’s ducts. According to the folks at ENERGY STAR, typical homes can lose between 20 and 30 percent of the air that passes through them due to duct leaks and other duct issues.
- Open your vents. It’s an awfully common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms closed and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t necessarily mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system do its job because airflow isn’t being prevented.
- Air conditioner service. Experts recommend that you set up air conditioner service with Boehmers/Cronin Emery Home Services by Enercare. Any time you have air conditioner headaches and your comfort is being jeopardized, call in the experts.
