The hottest days of the summer season make your AC unit run the hardest. Below are ways to reduce energy bills, save energy, maximize efficiency and increase comfort when your air conditioner requires the most assistance to keep you cool.

Contact an HVAC professional

Every central AC unit ought to be inspected, tuned and cleaned by an insured, bonded, and licensed HVAC professional before the warm season starts. Typically, a professional tune-up is priced from $70 to $100.

Check the filters

Check your air filter one time a month and replace it as necessary. It’s especially critical during the summertime when allergens and dust circulate. If your filter gets clogged, the system must work harder to supply the exact same amount of cold air.

Replacing filters is an easy and effective method of conserving energy and saving funds on your HVAC use. And similar to changing the oil in an automobile, it is an important step in sustaining the long-term health of your system.

Keep your air conditioner in the shade

ACs that have the right shading may work more efficiently. Air within a shaded area is colder than the surrounding air, which means the air conditioner is going to have an easier time chilling the air.

Do not allow your thermostat to take the heat

Do not place TV sets, lamps, or other heat-generating appliances close to your thermostat. Your thermostat senses the heat that is causing the AC to work longer than needed. As you install a new thermostat, do not place it in an area in which the sun may directly shine on it.

Touch the dial to save money

Keep in mind that every degree you dial below 78-degrees will increase your energy intake by around 8%. If your month-to-month utility bill is around $100, you will save $8 per month with every degree you’re able to stand above 78-degrees.

Think about a programmed response

If it is difficult to remember to tweak the thermostat before leaving for work, think about purchasing a smart or programmable thermostat or timer for the window unit.

Is it time to replace the HVAC unit?

You might discover that your old AC is no longer efficient. Think about replacing the model with an energy-efficient unit. They usually are more expensive yet because of competitive prices, the prices are decreasing, and because they’ll consume less energy, you’ll also save in the long run.

As you replace your air conditioner, search for the sized unit. If you put in an air conditioner that’s too large, it’ll cycle off and on — decreasing the system’s efficiency.

Weatherize so you won’t cool the entire community

You want the hot air to stay out and the cool air to stay in. A few basic weatherization measures may prevent air loss as you require cold air the most. Add insulation around AC ducts.

We've been using Classic Air Conditioning & Heating Services for the past five years to include Installation of new units (flawless by the way), bi-annual check-ups that are scheduled and carried out without a second thought on my part, and in emergencies (backed up drain in the bathroom with a response time in under 24 hours to troubleshoot the problem). Their technicians are master's at their craft, personable, and cut to the chase on his service calls. I never feel like I'm being given the run around or a sales pitch with this company. Today, Mitchell Wesch went above and beyond walking us through what was happening and provided a multitude of options and expected timelines for future repairs. Once again, a great example of exemplary customer service. He was able to troubleshoot the problem with zero delay. We're ready for the Texas summer, and are already looking forward to the next scheduled service call. Thank you Classic Services for keeping our home healthy and happy.

Theresa did an amazing job! She informed me about everything she was doing and took extra pictures so I could have them for my record. She was quick but still answered all my questions. She definitely saved the day when my condensor froze over on the coldest day of the year, leaving my family in the cold. She was out at my house within the hour and had everything fixed in minutes.
