It’s that time of year again. Temperatures are rising, and along with them, so are your energy bills. While you can’t dictate the weather, you can change how much you spend on your energy bills each month by simply fixing or replacing your current air conditioner. With Aqua Plumbing & Air, you can optimize your energy usage so that you can keep your home comfortable and energy costs manageable.
Just like our health requires periodic doctors’ visits, appliances similarly need check-ups now and then to optimize their functionality. So before you decide to replace your air conditioning unit altogether, the first step is to look for any issues with your current air conditioner. Often times, you can resolve the issue by simply replacing undercharged refrigerants, leaks in the coil, or any short circuits that are causing your air conditioning system to work harder than it needs to.
If your air conditioner is 10 or more years old, it could simply be time to fix or replace it with a newer, more energy-efficient one. On average, Americans spend $22 billion on powering their air conditioners every year. Today’s systems use 30-50% less energy than those built 40 years ago, meaning you can save yourself as much as 20-40% on cooling costs just by upgrading to a newer, more efficient system. In the infographic below published by Aqua Plumbing & Air, you will find energy-saving tips and more information on the advantages and benefits of having a new air conditioning system installed.
