Do-It-Yourself AC Unit Tips to Keep Costs Down

We know how it is. You crack the windows and put on the fans as long as you can, but the second those temperatures hit the 90s, you’re running to flip that AC switch and get it pumping. Well, not so fast. Turning your AC unit on and off with the heat is not only bad for the system but boosts your energy bill. Find a temperature that’s comfortable and leave it set to auto to run when it feels it should. Of course, we all love some sunlight in our home, but when you leave for the day, make sure those curtains are drawn to keep the cool air in and the warm air out. Lastly, checking your windows and doors and makes sure they are properly sealed. No reason to let that cool air out in the open! Keep it inside and stay cool.

Stay on Top of AC Cleaning

Here’s the biggest do-it-yourself trick to stay cool at a budget-friendly cost. Keep that AC unit clean all year round! The three big things you should keep an eye on, especially at times of year when the HVAC unit is heavily used, is the filters, the grille, and the drain. Changing the filters keeps air flowing smoothly and cleaning the grille and vacuuming the inside makes sure no dust or particles are interrupting that ACs flow. The drain and tubes can get clogged by debris, like leaves or rocks, or just dirt, and should always be checked. If you’re unsure how to clean your HVAC unit, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with our skilled technicians, or even consider an annual plan that keeps us on call all year round.
