As winter quickly becomes a distant memory in Warner Robins, Georgia, warm temperatures will arrive before you know it. Although you’ll want to keep cool throughout the spring, you don’t need to crank up the air conditioner or rack up high utility bills. From turning on your ceiling fans to investing in an efficient air conditioner, discover ways to cool your home for less this spring.
Turn On Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans can make a big impact on your family’s comfort level. When the weather starts to warm up outside, set each ceiling fan to move in a counterclockwise direction. This movement will prevent hot air from collecting near the ceiling while circulating cool air throughout the room.
Ceiling fans also create a wind chill effect that makes you feel cooler. With ceiling fans on, you can turn your thermostat up about 4 degrees to save energy while staying cool.
Schedule Preventive Maintenance
At Pruett Air Conditioning, we recommend having your air conditioner maintained at least once a year. When you schedule preventive maintenance, our HVAC technicians will go through a detailed checklist to make sure that your air conditioner is running properly and is ready for the cooling season ahead.
During our standard tune-up, we’ll also point out any issues that could lead to expensive breakdowns. By proactively finding and fixing these problems, we’ll help you avoid an expensive repair bill.
Invest in an Efficient Air Conditioner
Air conditioners that are more than 10 years old might still keep your home cool, but they may not do so efficiently. If you want to save on utility bills throughout the cooling season, consider investing in an efficient new air conditioner.
Our Energy Star–certified systems meet or exceed federal efficiency standards, and many have advanced features that enable them to lower your energy consumption. With variable-speed blowers and multi-stage cooling, new air conditioners help you stay cool at a fraction of the cost of older units.
Whether you’re ready to upgrade your air conditioner or you need to schedule HVAC maintenance, we’re here to help. Call our HVAC experts at Pruett Air Conditioning today: 478-225-4921.
