What Charlotte Needs To Know About Air Conditioning

Did you know that one of the biggest users of energy in your home is the air conditioner? Wow. Really? The air conditioner! Well, it makes sense that when the sun is beating down outside, the temperatures are climbing, and you’re feeling hot, it takes a real effort to cool things down.

When any machine operates for a few years without service, the efficiency begins to slowly deteriorate. At first the efficiency goes down a few percentage points. Over time those points can add up to a cost that becomes substantial in losses. It pays to have your air conditioner serviced regularly.

How are you for filter changes? That’s something you can do every month. A fresh filter will keep the air flow balanced, plus, your home will not be recycling old dust caught in an old filter. If your home is subject to extra dust and dander from location, animals, or other sources , it is good to change the filter more than once a month. Outdoor trees and shrubbery can be an unnoticed contributor to higher air conditioning costs. Shade, or lack of it, clogged vents from shrubbery and dried grasses and leaves do make a difference.
