family-holding-green-houseWhen you think about running an air conditioner, you probably don’t think about doing this in terms of “right” and “wrong.” We don’t want you to get too technical with your air conditioning system, but we do want you to understand a few guidelines. We see a lot of air conditioner inefficiency and avoidable air conditioning problems during this time of year due to the effects of these common air conditioning troubles.

We want to help you avoid these problems if possible. If you do run into some trouble and need air conditioning service in San Antonio, TX, we can be at your home in a flash to service you. If you’d like to learn how to run your air conditioning system that benefits you and your AC unit then keep reading below.

Avoid These AC Problems

If you’re making any of the following mistakes in your home make sure that you contact our team today.

  • Your Thermostat is Old: We covered this in our last blog but we’re going to mention it again here because it’s so important. An old, inefficient thermostat will negatively impact your home in more ways than one. Just switching over to a programmable thermostat will help you save money but switching over to a Wi-Fi thermostat or even a smart thermostat will help you make leaps and bounds in your home comfort. If you want energy savings, cost savings, and home comfort that conforms to your personal needs, make sure that you contact our professionals to learn more about your options.
  • You’ve Avoided Maintenance: Have you avoided your regular maintenance tune-ups for your home’s air conditioner? We understand how this happens. You might even have a reminder set up to schedule an appointment in spring to prepare your AC unit for summer but the day to call just keeps getting pushed back further and further. Having a professional technician check all the parts for wear and tear and tune-up any loose or dry parts in your home will help you save money on your energy bills.
  • Your Indoor Air Quality is Low: Do you cough, wheeze, and sneeze all year round? Is your home far too humid or way too dry? These are really big problems that affect the quality of your home cooling. Your home needs great indoor air quality as the foundation for your home cooling. You can contact our team to learn about your indoor air quality options. We understand that each home is different even though we’re all in the same general area. We have whole-house humidifiers, dehumidifiers, duct cleaning, duct sealing, duct repair, air sealing, and insulation services.
  • You’re Not Using Your Ceiling Fan: Your ceiling fan is a big ally in your home cooling. Your ceiling fan helps your air conditioner circulate cool air around your room. It’s important to note that ceiling fans can’t actually lower the temperature of your room—they just cool you by producing that wind chill effect that makes you feel relief.
