Now Is the Time for Routine AC Maintenance

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

ac-condenser-unitHere in Connecticut, hot weather is still a ways off. Don’t let our relatively chilly spring weather trick you into thinking that you don’t have to prepare for the summer season yet, though. When summer does arrive, it just may sneak up on you a bit earlier than you expected. The heat of summer may be a welcome change of pace after our long, hard winter season has passed, but you are not really going to be able to enjoy summer to the fullest if you fail to get your air conditioner ready for the season.

Now, there are definitely some very basic maintenance tasks that you can and should handle for yourself. For instance, it is important that you change the air filter in your air conditioning system as needed. Generally, that is going to be every 1-3 months. It is also a good idea to remove snow and other debris from your condenser unit outside, and to keep the area surrounding the unit clear. There is a lot more to AC maintenance than this, though, and most of it requires the skill and expertise of a trained professional.

Here Are 3 Ways to Lower Your Cooling Bills This Summer

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Making it through the summer without large electrical bills to power your air conditioner is tough. Most of the time, you have to simply accept that you need to have the air conditioner running. However, you don’t have to accept inflated bills at the same time: you’re probably paying more for your air conditioning than you have to, and through a few basic methods you can put a dent in those high cooling costs. We’ll show you how.

Celco Heating and Air Conditioning want you and your family to have a great summer, and we’re always here to help you when there’s trouble with your air conditioner.

For repairs or AC maintenance in Greenwich, CT, call our skilled and NATE-certified air conditioning maintenance experts, any time of the day or night.

3 tips to lower air conditioning costs

  • Regularly change the air filter: This is the #1 reason that many homeowners end up paying more for cooling their home than they should. The filter blocks debris from entering the air conditioner cabinet, but if it isn’t changed once a month during the summer (when the system runs the most) it will become clogged and make it difficult for air to pass through the return vents. The AC will need to use more electricity to draw sufficient air, leading to a large power drain. You can change the filter yourself, and keep it up for the rest of the season.
  • Careful thermostat control: It’s easy to abuse the thermostat by putting it at the lowest setting each time you turn it on (for most systems, this is around 50°F­) thinking that this will cool down the house faster. However, it will only keep the AC on longer, wasting energy and providing you an uncomfortably chilly temperature. Instead, program you thermostat to around 72°F during the day, and raise it at night. This change alone can save you around 30% off your bills a year.
  • Regular maintenance: The best way to save money with your AC is to schedule regular annual maintenance for it with a professional technician. Maintenance not only makes sure that your air conditioner is running without impending repair needs, but it will also clean, adjust, and tune-up the system so it runs at its best and won’t drain any excess energy. If you haven’t had your maintenance check for this year yet, hurry up and arrange it before the summer heat grows more intense.
