It’s hard to argue with a simple principle: If you take care of something, it lasts longer. That’s true whether you’re exercising to tone your body, driving your car to a service appointment or updating the exterior paint on your house. And it’s certainly true for taking care of your home’s air conditioning system.
Any piece of equipment can show signs of deterioration as it ages year after year. Yet routine maintenance can substantially slow the aging process – while neglect can lead to a system a failure long before its time.
To turn back the hands of time, schedule a routine tune-up every year on your air conditioner. With this check by a professional tech, you’ll get a clear picture of how your system is holding up as it performs its duties of keeping you cool and comfortable.
By tightening connections, lubricating parts, cleaning coils and blower components, checking drains, clearing debris, adjusting settings, checking refrigerant levels and checking controls, your system can be restored to its top condition, and you’ve got a much better chance of avoiding inconvenient repairs.
It’s always a good idea to take care of your large investments, and your air conditioning system plays heavily into your home’s value. Plus, reliable, energy-efficient operation is well worth the time it takes for a friendly visit from a technician.
To keep your cooling comfort at peak performance, call us to request a tune-up on your air conditioning system. We’re here to keep things running smoothly all season long.

If you’re considering home renovations and improvements this spring, pay attention to how newer, more advanced “green” appliances can reduce your energy use. You’ll not only enjoy greater comfort, convenience and reliability from technologically-enhanced features, but you’ll also shell out less “green” from your wallet in energy costs.
Replacing aging refrigerators, dishwashers, freezers, washers, and dryers with more energy-efficient models is part of a sound strategy for controlling energy costs. But, of course, your air conditioning and heating takes the biggest bite out of your energy funds – as much as half or more in some cases.
According to the Department of Energy, switching to high-efficiency air conditioners as part of your energy conservation efforts can help you reduce your energy use for cooling by 20-50%. That’s a huge savings that adds up quickly.
Over the years, air conditioning technology has made great improvements. If you compared one of today’s best models with an air conditioner made in the mid-1970s, you’d find that it uses 30-50% less energy to produce the same amount of cool air. But even if your air conditioning system is just 10 years old, you could save 20-40% in cooling energy by replacing it with a newer model.
Remember – it’s not just the unit itself that saves energy. You also need equipment that is properly sized for your home and professionally installed. Units that are too large won’t adequately remove humidity. Units that are too small won’t be able to maintain comfortable cooling on really hot days.

Cooling and heating your home is a significant investment – typically, 44% of your utility bill goes just to keep your indoor climate comfortable.
Here’s an idea:
You can save as much as 10% a year on your heating and cooling bills by adjusting your thermostat just a few degrees at night. Or you can make this savings automatic by installing a programmable thermostat. This is especially helpful when you’re away (think Summer vacation!).
By using a programmable thermostat, your heating or air conditioning is adjusted according to a pre-set schedule. As a result, you don’t operate the equipment as much when you sleep or when you’re not there. And that means automatic savings – now that’s comfort!
So, call your trusted local HVAC company and they can show you how to get your automatic savings started today.
