For those times when fans just won’t cut it, here are a few easy ways to make sure your air conditioning unit is running efficiently. You could save up to 50% on cooling costs!

  • Keep air filters clean: Replace your filters regularly (or clean them, if you have reusable filters). This alone could cut your cooling costs by 5-15%.
  • Leave room for proper airflow: Clear out any plants or debris that could possibly be blocking airflow to your outdoor condensing unit.
  • Clean out the coils: Remove dirt and dust that accumulate over time by vacuuming and then washing the coils.
  • Hire a professional: It’s a good idea to have your unit serviced, inspected, and cleaned once a year or so, to save on utility bills and repair costs later on.
