We’ve pulled together some ideas for you to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer. Service To ensure your air conditioner is functioning at peak efficiency all summer, have an air conditioner service completed on your system right before spring begins. Having air conditioner service performed not only helps boost your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can battle seasonal allergies by eliminating dust and dirt built up in your system, which can be distributed throughout your house. This clog can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also reducing your system’s efficiency. While scheduled routine air conditioner service clearly offers a wide-range of benefits, one of the most important benefits is reducing the possibility of your system needing a potentially costly AC repair. Regular service will keep your systems running properly, which extends the life of your unit. Crack a Window There are days where the weather in Portland Metro is idyllic. These are the days when you can open your windows and let the cool air come in at night. This gives your air conditioner a chance to rest overnight and in the morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside.
