Keep your air conditioning bills lower this year

Happy Spring! The flowers are starting to come up and some are even starting to bloom. The trees are budding and grass has started to grow. Hot weather is around the corner.
This year, don't wait until it's 80 degrees and humid to ensure your air conditioner is working properly!
In the meantime, here are some energy saving tips to help save on energy costs:
*Raise your thermostat about five degrees, because each degree you raise your thermostat will save you about five percent off your energy bill.
*Don't obstruct airflow around your air conditioner unit-keep it clear of plants and debris
*Check your filters regularly. Even more often if you live in a dusty area, if your air conditioner gets constant use, or if you have pets. A plugged filter will significantly effect your air conditioner's function and can even harm the system.
Enjoy the season and thanks for following our blog!
