AC & Heater Repair in San Antonio

Making the Most of Your AC Unit

It might not feel like it right now but extra hot summer temps are just around the corner for us San Antonio Natives. That means cranking up the air conditioner and maybe some unwanted breakdowns and high costs are in our near future.

Here’s how you can make the most of it:

Set your thermostat to 78 degrees. The closer your indoor temperature is to the outdoor temperature, the lower your costs will be. Plus, you’ll still be able to enjoy the indoor comfort a running air conditioner provides.

Shut vents in rooms you don’t use. If there are rooms in your home you don’t frequently occupy in the summertime, seal those vents up. This will better circulate your air to rooms that need it, maximizing your air conditioner’s efficiency.

Clean it up. A cleaner filter is a better working filter. To avoid running your air conditioner into the ground, make sure the filter is replaced regularly and always free of dust and debris.

Get with the program. A programmable thermostat can reduce your cooling costs by keeping your home slightly warmer when you are away at work or school and keeping it coolest when you are home sleeping, etc.

By implementing these best practices from the very start of the summer season, you’ll have yourself and your home on the way to cooler, less expensive days in no time!
