We’ve compiled some ideas for you to maintain the efficiency of your air conditioner this spring and summer. Service To be certain your air conditioner is running at peak efficiency all summer, have an air conditioner service completed on your system right before spring begins. Having air conditioner service completed not only helps increase your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can help fight seasonal allergies by getting rid of dust and dirt built up in your system, which can circulate throughout your house. This blockage can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also reducing your system’s efficiency. While scheduled annual air conditioner service obviously offers a wide-range of benefits, one of the biggest benefits is reducing the possibility of your system needing a most likely costly AC repair. Regular service will keep your systems operating properly, which maintains the life of your system. Crack a Window There are times when the weather in Franklin Lakes is idyllic. On these days you can open your windows and let the cool air come in at night. This lets your air conditioner rest overnight and in the morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside.
