Now that the summer season is in full effect, you’ll want to make sure that your cooling system is in excellent shape. Typically, an air conditioner is a very tough piece of equipment, engineered to withstand all sorts of pressure, and are made to last reasonably long, yet for a variety of reasons, your cooling system can break down and malfunction, even so at times when you need it most. According to the US Department of Energy, one of the most common reasons for cooling failures is not in the equipment at all. For example, some people often make the mistake of leaving doors and windows open when the A/C is on.

Summer season usually equates to vacation time at the beach, travelling to unknown places or simply sleeping the day off at home. On the other hand, the outdoor heat it brings also indicates rising energy costs as AC’s are expected to run longer. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), homeowners spend around $11 billion is just to run their units, with most of the consumption occurring during hot weather. While environmental problems have yet to be resolved, at least you can begin with installing a highly efficient air condition which will save you up to 20 to 50% of energy use.
