Did you know that air conditioners lose about five percent of their efficiency each year if they aren't serviced? For information on how to get the best performance from your air conditioner, watch this video clip.
If you don't already have a programmable thermostat, call an AC repair company serving Chicago and the surrounding areas to have one installed. This is an easy way to boost the efficiency and performance of your air conditioner. A clogged air filter can lead to dirty air and higher energy bills, so replace the AC filter once per month during cooling season for optimal performance. You should also schedule an annual AC tune-up to ensure you won't be calling for AC repairs in the middle of the summer, and be sure to close vents in rarely used rooms to avoid unnecessary cooling.
