July and August are historically the hottest parts of the summer in many parts of the country, which means that AC bills are running high while people try to beat the heat and keep themselves cool. If you’ve blanched at some of your cooling bills this summer, you may be paying more than you need to. Here are some basic ac maintenance tips to help maintain the life of your cooling system, as well as saving you a little bit of money on these costly summer bills.
Clean the Filter in the Air Conditioner
If the air filter on your air conditioner is dirty, then the system has to work harder in order to pump the same amount of air into your home. The system working harder will translate to higher bills, so it’s important to stay on top of making sure that filter stays clean. Try to vacuum and sanitize the filter regularly (once every three months is a solid schedule) and you may find that your cooling system is running cleaner and more efficiently than before.
