Maintenance drives efficiency
The focus on Energy Star appliances such as air conditioners and heat pumps is certainly beneficial to the environment and also in reducing the costs of heating or cooling a home, business or commercial space. Buying an Energy Star product is only half of the battle in saving money. The other side of that coin is regular maintenance.
Air Conditioner and Furnace Service
Air conditioner service helps to keep every air conditioner running at peak efficiency. Regular service helps to reduce air conditioner repair service calls. Outdoor units are subject to all kinds of natural forces that can cause the unit to lose efficiency. Efficiency is the direct rate that it costs to operate the unit. When efficiency drops, it costs more money to operate the unit.
Changing the filter on your air conditioner is a very simple way to help keep the efficiency at peak performance. The same is true with furnace filters. Clean filters require less energy usage from the unit. Click here to order new filters!
Regular maintenance also helps to keep the internal unit clean and free debris. Leaves and gunk that block intake fans causes the unit to use more energy to do the same amount of work. Lower your monthly utility costs with regular air conditioner or furnace maintenance.
