The answer is first and foremost premier air conditioner service that has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we definitely wouldn’t dispute the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a couple things you can try yourself.
At Chief/Bauer Service Experts, we think it’s great that you want to save some on your monthly energy expenses, which is why we assembled this list for you to consider:
- Swap your home’s air filter. It’s probably the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a huge difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it a challenge 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 complications.
- Open your vents. It’s an awfully common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms shut 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. Professionals recommend that you set up air conditioner service with Chief/Bauer Service Experts. Any time you have air conditioner issues and your comfort is being sacrificed, call in the experts.
