AC Maintenance in Denver – Energy Tips

While most states are still dealing with snowfall and blizzards, Denver residents are already starting to think about summer. While temperatures are pretty pleasant this time of year, things will start to heat up pretty quickly. When it comes to high-quality air conditioning service,  locals know and trust Smith & Willis. Our goal is to save you money and keep you cool this summer with exceptional AC maintenance. Here are a few simple ways to save on your cooling costs when summer strikes. 

  1.     Have your HVAC unit serviced. Call us to schedule you seasonal AC maintenance visit. One of our AC technicians will inspect, clean, and lubricate your unit. This will help ensure that it is running at peak efficiency and keeping your home cool without costing more than it has to.
  2.     Change your filters monthly. Dirt, debris, and allergens can build up in your AC filter. The more that builds up, the harder your unit has to work to keep your home cool. Working harder means less cool air for more money. Replacing your filters monthly during the cooling season will keep your unit running at its best.
  3.     Use pleated filters. Speaking of filters, replace yours with pleated high efficiency filters. They are the best filter you can buy and use less electricity to cool your home.
  4.     Use your ceiling fans. Your fans create a breeze and can make a room feel several degrees cooler. They cost significantly less to operate than your air conditioner does, so take advantage of them to stay cool and save money. Just remember that fans do nothing to actually lower the temperature so they are only effective when you are in the room to enjoy them. Turn them off when you leave a room to save electricity.

By following these four easy tips, you will save money on your electric bill this summer without compromising comfort. AC maintenance is best practice for extending the life of your AC unit. Let the experts at Smith & Willis keep you cool and comfortable all summer long!
