An air conditioner (AC) unit can create a comfortable indoor environment to enhance relaxation and comfort. Running an inefficient unit can increase energy consumption, leading to higher electricity bills and increased carbon emissions. Here’s more on how to reduce your air conditioning energy bills.
Find an Energy-efficient Unit
Upgrading to an energy-efficient AC unit may lower your energy bill. Energy-efficient AC units use less power to maintain the desired temperature, reducing your energy usage and expenses. Assess a unit’s star rating before purchasing it. The higher its rating, the more energy efficient it will be. Our technicians will assess your home and business and recommend the most suitable AC unit based on your needs and budget.
Proper Air Conditioner Installation
You can manage your energy bills from the start by getting your unit installed properly. Proper air conditioner installation can prevent your unit from overworking, potentially lowering your monthly electric bill.
Mainstream Heating and Cooling only works with qualified professionals with the expertise to properly install AC units. Our technicians have the North American Technician Excellence (NATE) certification. NATE only certifies professionals after passing knowledge and experience-based assessments.
Conduct Regular Maintenance
Regular maintenance can keep your unit performing optimally. An optimal unit will run smoothly without overexerting itself. This can translate to lower energy bills and increased cost savings. Mainstream Heating and Cooling offers comprehensive AC maintenance services for all brands. Our skilled technicians will check your unit’s refrigerant levels, clean its coils, and assess its ductwork for leaks. Schedule your system for maintenance before a problem arises to increase its lifespan.
Replace Air Filters
Your AC unit’s air filters are susceptible to collecting dust over time, as indoor air often contains impurities. The dust can cause your AC unit to work harder than necessary, causing high energy bills. Our certified technicians are available 24/7 to help with air filter replacement. They’ll help you choose the right air filter for your unit for optimal performance.
Install Programmable Thermostats
A programmable thermostat gives you more control over temperatures in your home or business. You can set varying temperatures for different times of the day to keep your AC unit operational only when necessary. This can reduce your energy consumption and bills. Mainstream Heating and Cooling offers smartphone-enabled Trane thermostats to allow you to control your home or business’s indoor temperature from any location.
