Nothing spoils a summer day faster than an air conditioning system meltdown. And while the hot and humid days of summer seem a long way off, we saw temps in the low-70s in the middle of March here in the Hudson Valley. Making sure your air conditioning system is tuned up and ready to go should be near the top of your spring-cleaning list—right there with clearing the gutters and getting the grill ready.
Of course, there’s no substitute for regular professional maintenance—and usually it’s required to keep warranties valid. But these steps can help ensure your system can perform if we get an early heatwave—or alert you to problems so you can address them before the true heat of the summer kicks in.
Here’s our 5-point checklist to follow before you turn on your air conditioning system:
If your air conditioning system is more than 15 years old, installing a new high-efficiency system can reduce your annual cooling costs by as much as 40%!
Today’s air conditioning equipment is also friendlier to the environment because it uses a refrigerant that doesn’t harm the earth’s ozone layer. Whether you need a new system, or just repairs, the technicians at Depew Energy have the knowledge and experience to make sure the job is done right. We install and repair central air systems as well as ductless systems, and can help you choose the best option for your specific space.
When it comes to keeping your cool, unreasonably high energy bills don’t help. With electricity prices spiking across the county, making sure your air conditioning system is performing efficiently will help you stay comfortable while better keeping your energy bills under control now, and for the seasons to come.
