Tips for Efficient Air Conditioning in Atlanta

Monday, May 6th, 2013

Homeowners throughout the Atlanta area are always looking for tips to make their home cooling more efficient. While we cannot control the cost of electricity, we can control how much electricity we use. For efficient air conditioning in Atlanta, call Air Conditioning Experts today!

Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your AC this summer:

  • Enroll in a maintenance program: It makes sense to let a pro worry about the details of your AC. A maintenance program gives them the opportunity to thoroughly inspect, clean and tune-up your system biannually, so that your heating and cooling systems are fully taken care of. The Comfort Club Membership also includes a 15% discount on parts and labor. Prevention is the best path towards efficient air conditioning, especially considering how much use your Atlanta AC gets during the long cooling season.
  • Clean and replace your air filter: During peak cooling times, you need to change your air filter at least once a month. Not only will this improve your indoor air quality, but it will also allow uninhibited airflow between your air handler and your living space. A clean air filter goes a long way to improving system performance and energy efficiency.
  • Clean and clear: If any vegetation has begun encroaching on your outdoor unit, spring’s great time to clear a space around it so that it can adequately dissipate the heat pulled from the interior of your home. Even the most minor obstruction can cause your system to work harder and reduce efficiency. Speak to a professional for more advice about what you should and should not attempt to clean.

For more information, talk to your local AC tech. For Atlanta air conditioning services, call Air Conditioning Experts today!
