Service To make sure your air conditioner is running at peak efficiency all summer, have an air conditioner service completed on your system right before spring begins.

This blockage can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also reducing your system’s efficiency. While scheduled annual air conditioner service obviously offers many of benefits, one of the most important benefits is reducing the likelihood of your system needing a possibly costly AC repair. Regular service will keep your systems operating properly, which maintains the life of your system. Crack a Window There are times when the weather in Aurora is idyllic. These are the days when you can open your windows and let the cool breeze in at night. This gives your air conditioner a chance to rest overnight and the next morning when you close the windows and trap the cool air inside.

If you can keep the disparity in the outside temperature and your indoor temperature smaller, you will decrease your energy use, and therefore your bill.
