Sometimes it’s the little things which make the biggest difference.
Take soap for instance. It seems like such a small, seemingly insignificant task to clean something. But the simple act of keeping equipment clean often means it runs more efficiently.
This definitely holds true when it comes to lowering your energy bills.
Little things help your air conditioning system run more efficiently and cuts down on your energy costs.. Sealing doors and windows. Changing air filters regularly. Having your AC system professionally cleaned.
Tape. Caulk. Filters. Soap. These little things save you big money.
How AC Cleaning Cuts Your Energy Bills
Cleaning an AC unit seems like a simple task, but it’s not easily done by homeowners because of how AC units are built.
They’re sealed up tight to keep stuff out like dust and debris, and that makes it difficult to get it truly clean.
We use an industrial grade cleaning product when we clean your air conditioning unit. On the surface, you can see it stripping the dust and dirt away. Your unit looks like new.
But other things are happening that you can’t see. Inside the unit, the cleaner is getting into the coils which are located behind the louvers and foaming up. This pushes the dirt, pollen and mildew out of the unit where it can be rinsed away with a garden hose.
And don’t worry…this cleaning product is environmentally friendly and biodegradable so it won’t harm plants, grass, pets or people.
Getting the dirt and grime out of the coils allows the unit to run at maximum efficiency. In other words, it cuts down on the energy usage. Or put another way, it lowers your energy bills. Some studies estimate as much as 20%!
So next time you’re looking at what’s included in an A/C service visit, don’t make the mistake of devaluing the service because it only costs something like $79.
Remember, tape, filters and yes soap can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year on your energy bills.
