It’s getting warmer and people are getting spring fever. Add lowering your utility bills to your reasons for excitement. You shouldn’t be concerned with your air conditioner’s efficiency every time you turn it on. You should be able to just enjoy the cool air without thinking you’ve been running it too often. We’ve compiled some ideas for you to regulate the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer. Service To make sure your air conditioner is running at peak efficiency all summer, have an air conditioner service completed on your system right before spring begins. Having air conditioner service done not only helps increase your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can combat seasonal allergies by eliminating dust and dirt built up in your system, which flows throughout your house. This blockage can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also reducing your system’s efficiency. While scheduled routine air conditioner service obviously offers many of benefits, one of the biggest benefits is reducing the possibility of your system needing a most likely costly AC repair. Regular service will keep your systems running properly, which extends the life of your unit. Crack a Window Some days the weather in McHenry is idyllic. And that’s when you can open your windows and let the cool air come in at night. This lets your air conditioner rest overnight and in the morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside. Make Your Thermostat Work for You McHenry can get steamy in the summer. Of course you will want to crank the AC up so you can always walk into a refreshingly cool home.

If you can keep the disparity in the outside temperature and your indoor temperature smaller, you will lower your energy use, and therefore your bill.
