An efficient air conditioning is essential to living comfortably in San Antonio, Texas. Avoiding these four common mistakes goes a long way toward ensuring that your unit works at its best.
Neglecting Your Air Filter
Changing your filters is quick and easy: don’t let that be the reason why your AC fails to keep you comfortable! A clogged filter forces your unit to work harder, reducing its efficiency and leading to breakdowns.
Not Updating Your Thermostat
Remember to adjust your thermostat whenever the season or your routine changes. Settings that are misaligned with your habits or with the weather result in decreased comfort and unnecessary energy consumption, which translates into higher energy bills.
Thinking That Check-Ups Are Not Necessary
In order to keep functioning properly, your AC unit needs at least one yearly check-up. Don’t skimp on maintenance! You’ll find that in the end, you’ll still have to spend that money on repairs, with the added inconveniences and discomfort that come with a broken unit.
Putting Off Replacing Your AC
We know it: few people like the prospect of replacing their AC system. It feels easier and less expensive to just keep repairing your unit. Don’t reach that point. Keep repairing an old unit is usually more expensive than getting a new one if you factor in the high energy bills that come with an outdated or inefficient unit.
If the cost of replacing your old AC is a concern, don’t hesitate to contact Zero Heating. We have financing plans available!
