Keeping you cool in the heat
After a frigid New England winters comes roasting hot summers when we brush the dust off our air conditioners. But will it work after the long hibernation?
To be sure your air conditioner is working by the time the heat arrives, we recommend units get a thorough inspection and coil cleaning at least once a year. Doing proactive maintenance like this can save you money on your utility bills and protects your investment for years to come.
Air conditioning can be expensive to operate for extended periods, but in summer the heat runs all do long. So to cut down on costs, here's some energy saving tips to keep in mind:
- Use the ceiling fan first, which is much cheaper to operate.
- Get periodic maintenance on your AC unit to ensure it's proper operation.
- Get a programmable thermostat which can intelligently turn off the AC when you're not home.
- Verify the AC air vents/ducts are open and not blocked by anything.
