As a homeowner, receiving a high energy bill is extremely frustrating—especially when you haven’t increased your energy usage. If you’re wondering why your energy bill is so high, the culprit could be your air conditioning system. Learn three things that are causing your AC to be an energy hog, here.

Dirty AC Filter

Air filters are one of the most important components of your air conditioning system, yet they’re often the most underrated. Air filters are constantly working to filter out dander, dirt, dust and other harmful pollutants from the air while also keeping your home cool and comfy. However, if the air filter is too dirty, your air conditioning system has to work harder to produce the same results. This can cause a drastic increase in your energy bills. The solution? Change your air filter on a regular basis.

The Thermostat Is Set Incorrectly

If your air conditioner is on full blast even when you’re not at home, your energy bills are bound to skyrocket. An easy way to save energy and money is to utilize your thermostat, especially if you have a programmable thermostat. Programmable thermostats in particular can be programed in advance to change settings automatically throughout the day. This means that you can program your thermostat to automatically turn off or to a more energy-efficient temperature when you’re not home. As a result, your air conditioning system will use less energy while you still get the same great comfort when you’re home.

Never Had AC Maintenance Done

You know how your car needs an oil change every few thousand miles? Well, so does your air conditioning system. In order for your AC to work as efficiently as possible, it needs a little TLC from time to time in the form of a maintenance checkup. A maintenance checkup will ensure that everything is functioning as it should be within your AC system. As a result, you system will experience less issues, will need fewer repairs, and more. Even better, your energy bills will be lower.

The technicians are on time and personable. They have always laid out all of my options for me and have never tried to force me into something I wasn’t sure of – for example purchasing a new system. Even my old broken-down piece of garbage was able to be serviced by them back into functioning. I was able to get an appointment quickly and they were able to work with me to get the service done in a timely fashion.

Twice we needed a split unit air conditioner replaced, and twice these guys were really terrific. I never look for the lowest price, but I have a sense of what is a fair price, and the price they gave me was better than fair. The salesman was terrifically honest, and when I asked him if he would recommend any additional work, he said no. The installers were terrific.

Great service!! I had 2 techs come out on different times both told me the same thing. They did not try to sell me any extra services or a new unit. They both went beyond what I expected. They also educated me on a few things Which i found to be true through my own research. Really glad I found them and their prices are very reasonable.
