Westlake, OH residents know that a good air conditioner is often all that stands between them and the brutal heat waves of summer. We’re all accustomed to paying for that privilege, as higher temperatures mean more frequent use of an AC system and a comparative spike in monthly energy bills. But just because you have to pay more for all that use doesn’t mean you can’t cut down on costs without sacrificing your comfort. With a little help from a trained technician, you can lower those pesky bills and still ride out the heat and humidity with a cool and comfortable household.
Preventive Maintenance Makes a Big Difference
In many ways, it’s helpful to stop a lot of problems before they begin with a good early summer maintenance session. A technician can clean your system and tighten any loose bolts or fittings, as well as checking for more serious problems. Not only will that allow you to schedule a repair session to fix any issues before they force your system to shut down, but maintenance improves efficiency a great deal, shaving precious dollars off of those beastly monthly bills.
Think About a Dehumidifier
Ohio summers aren’t just hot. They’re humid as well, and when your household passes the 50% relative humidity stage, you’re apt to feel a lot warmer than you should. A dehumidifier can reduce the amount of ambient moisture in the air, which helps your air conditioner run more smoothly and takes some of the strain off of it just when it needs a little help (reducing the amount of energy it consumes in the process). Dehumidifiers can also improve the quality of your air while they’re reducing the strain on your pocketbook.
