Running your air conditioner during the summer can cost a lot of money.  However, there are several different ways you can lower your energy costs.  By properly maintaining your air conditioner, you can reduce bills and keep your air conditioner running longer.

Here are several maintenance tips that will lower your air conditioner bills:

Have your air conditioner inspected and serviced every year 

One way to lower energy costs is to have your air conditioner serviced and inspected every year.  Yearly maintenance will keep your air conditioner working as efficiently as possible and lower your electric bills.

In addition, making repairs will keep small problems from becoming larger ones.  By fixing small problems now, you avoid larger and more expensive repairs in the future.

Make sure you are replacing your air conditioner filters regularly

A clean air conditioner filter provides several benefits.  They make sure air circulates properly and help keep dust and allergens out of your home.  If a filter is dirty, your air conditioner will have to work harder to circulate enough cool air.  This will drive up your energy costs.

As a result, it is necessary to replace your filter every few months.  It will provide higher quality air in your house and lower your energy costs.

Clear the area around your air conditioner

Make sure to clear the area around your air conditioner unit of debris and plants.  By trimming plants regularly and removing debris, you allow the air conditioner unit to get the proper airflow.  Doing this will help the air conditioner work more efficiently.
