Calling All Units…
Are you experiencing humidity problems?
Do you feel like you are running into the ground?
Are you turning on and off constantly?
Are you having problems staying cool or warming up?
Are you constantly breaking down?
Energy Star states that 49% of all the energy you use in your home goes towards keeping cool or staying warm.
Today, the average price for a new cooling unit costs around $10,000 - equivalent to the price of a new car or one hundred pairs of designer heels! If you tune-up your car on a regular basis, why not tune-up you air conditioning unit too? Here are three easy steps to keep you calm and cool in the summertime.
It is recommended that your unit’s air filter be changed out on a monthly basis. All you need to do is purchase a replacement filter that is pleated, the correct size, clean and matches up to the size of the unit. Next, locate the filter, which is usually where your return air goes into your unit at the return grill or on the bottom of the air handler. Reach in and swap the filter out with the new one by placing it in the right direction and proper position. It’s that easy. Changing the air filter on a monthly basis can keep your system functioning seamlessly and give you the biggest bang for the least amount of buck.
The Programmable Thermostat
If you are like me, and are away from home more often than not, a programmable thermostat may be your key to savings. Programmable thermostats allow you to control the humidity in the home and also vary the temperature and cycles from room to room and floor to floor. Once you find your temperature comfort zone, you can pre-set your air conditioning unit to run during specific times of the day and certain days of the week. By equipping your unit with a programmable thermostat, you will not only keep your system running smoothly but also ensure your comfort.
To make sure that your unit is in tip top shape for summertime, now is the time to schedule your pre-seasonal tune-up. Getting your system in order has never been so easy. Give Sears a call at 1-877-827-8585 or just set up the tune-up service order directly online. Sears uses certified technicians who service all the major brands nationwide. Their tune-up costs on average $90.00 and includes a technician who will come out and verify the operating efficiency and performance of your unit.
I know that your time is valuable but sacrificing an hour today will give you cooling power tomorrow. Spring time is the best time to cut back on cooling costs and make your unit work best for you during the summertime months.
