Summer is in full swing here in Georgia. Your air conditioner is all that stands between you and the stifling sun. If you're dreading a rise in utility costs, then we have some ways for you to maximize your comfort while also maintaining fiscal and operational efficiency.

What Is AC Efficiency?

Efficiency not only concerns how much your system costs to operate, but also relates to how good of a job it does in cooling your home. In essence, Efficiency refers to how much energy your system requires in order to operate at its most effective level. Higher Efficiency is a calculation that determines how much cooling you’re getting and how much you’re paying to receive it.

How To Increase HVAC Efficiency

Short of buying a new, upgraded cooling system there are other ways to give efficiency a boost. Here are two important actions to take to maximize efficiency:

1. Change your air filter. Changing your filter every two to three months is a low-cost, quick way to really promote excellent efficiency. Keeping consistent with this practice will ensure that your costs stay lower while never compromising your comfort. Replacing filters also helps prevent potential air quality problems.

2. Upgrade your thermostat. Programmable smartphone tools can help you optimize your HVAC system. These operations streamline the process and make adjustments that will help reduce rising costs.

Just like a tune-up is needed periodically for your car, a home cooling system too needs an occasional "tune-up". HVAC professional maintenance improves efficiency and effectiveness, promotes a healthier, longer lived system and lowers the risks of a breakdown. Ideally, you should set a date for maintenance and tune-up services twice a year - once in the fall for heating, and once in the spring for cooling. Did you miss scheduling your cooling system service this year? If so, it’s not too late! Contact Reese Services today.
