Take a look and start saving!
Invest in regular A/C servicing
Arguably the most important thing you can do to keep air conditioning costs low is to ensure the unit is regularly serviced by a qualified, experienced technician. A good service incorporates everything from performance testing through to:
- Changing any parts that are showing signs of wear
- Topping up fluid levels
- Inspection of all moving parts, with cleaning provided if needed
- Cleaning vents and other parts of the system that have collected dirt
- Checking the condenser coils and cleaning if necessary
- Ensuring the thermometer is working accurately
- Analysing engine performance
The aim of a service isn’t just to reduce the risk of breakdown and prolong the life of your unit, it’s also to ensure optimal performance.
Decrease the amount of sunlight in the building
Check your A/C system is right for your premises
Alter the temperature settings
Even a one-degree increase in the thermostat temperature can result in a significant reduction in the amount of energy your A/C system uses to keep your interior cool. An interior temperature that’s a degree higher probably won’t make much difference to your workforce or customers, but could make a noticeable difference to your energy bill!
Another key reason your A/C may be unusually costly to run is simply that it’s nearing the end of its useful lifespan. If you’re considering a fresh A/C installation, or would like to arrange a service using one of our expert technicians, drop Chill-Rite an email.
