It is no secret that it can cost a great deal of money to fight off the heat. As it gets hotter and hotter outside, we tend to stay inside more with the air conditioner blowing at full blast. All of that use can and will add up on your monthly bill. Luckily you can stay cool all summer long without breaking the bank, and we can help. We are Weston Bros Heating and Cooling, and it is our goal to give you the professional installation and maintenance that you need, while helping you to save money. That is why we have come up with these tips to help you to maximize your Queens window air conditioner:
- Don’t Neglect Your Air Conditioner Filters– You would be surprised at how quickly your filters will get dirty. The dirtier the filters are, the harder your unit will have to work. Your filters should be thoroughly cleaned at least once a month, and replaced every few months.
- Keep Direct Sunlight Out of Your Home- While there is nothing better than a naturally lit room, direct sunlight can raise the temperature in your home by a staggering 10 to 20 degrees. The less heat there is in your home, the less expensive it will be to remove it, so don’t neglect those drapes or blinds!
- Use Your Ceiling Fan- While a ceiling fan won’t do a lot on its own, when you combine it with your air conditioner, it can make all the difference in the world! The best part is that ceiling fans cost only about a penny an hour to run.
