Air conditioning efficiency is something to be taken very seriously in an area like ours, where running an air conditioner nonstop for a good chunk of the year is just a reality. Do you know what falls well outside the confines of reality, though? Cooling your home for free.

You need to pay to cool your home, but there are some simple ways in which you may be able to pay less.
We know what you’re thinking. Oh, here comes the sales pitch for expensive, high-efficiency systems that I just cannot afford right now. Not at all!

You’re loving your new air conditioning system. If you’ve recently purchased an air conditioner within the last few years and had it installed by professional AC technicians, it probably works a lot better than your older system did.

So if your air conditioner is working so well, do you really need to worry about routine maintenance this year? Today, we list our reasons for recommending that you schedule AC maintenance in the spring with a qualified technician—even if you only installed the system a few years ago.

Chances are high that you pay little attention to any part of your air conditioning system except the thermostat—until something breaks down, that is.
