While the summer season in the U.S. is best enjoyed outside, rising temperatures encourage many people to simply stay cool at home. According to the Department of Energy (DOE), average homeowners in the U.S. to power their air conditioners (AC) spend an estimated $11 billion. Global warming is not to be resolved anytime soon, but you can perform your own energy-saving measures to prevent being part of the equation that consumes energy extravagantly. The act of installing highly efficient units may already reduce energy consumption from 20 to 50%. Allowing natural ventilation into your home through fans and windows will also help curtail costly energy usage of your AC.

Much has been said about the importance of regular maintenance checks for air conditioning units, as told by heating and cooling specialists from Indiana and beyond. One question remains, however: how “regular” should these checks be? The short answer from the experts is this: any air conditioning unit needs to be inspected, serviced and cleaned at least once a year to ensure that it operates at peak energy efficiency, ready to cool your home when it’s needed most (ideally in the spring, as well). Such need for reliable air conditioning rings more true than ever, with states such as Indiana experiencing additional warm days for the rest of the summer.

Each component of Greenwood HVAC systems should always be in good condition if you want to be comfortable through the coming and going of seasons. After all, you don’t want to get caught with the air conditioner not working during the summer. Proper maintenance is important. Like in other kinds of equipment that require upkeep, you can wait until a major repair is needed or you can hire a professional for routine services at a small cost. Not only does the former hurt your pocket more; it renders your AC inoperable for a considerable amount of time, as well. For that duration, you’ll have to rely on other cooling options like electric fans, which aren’t really enough to match the cooling capability of the AC. You just won’t be as comfortable as you’d like until the unit is taken care of by a company that performs cooling and heating repair in Greenwood, like Bri-Tech Heating and Cooling.
