Savings With an ESA Classic Plan!

Years ago, the Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service at Louisiana State University teamed up with Gulf States Power to identify what benefits if any were provided by an air conditioning tune-up. A series of homes were heavily instrumented, data was collected over time, tune-ups were performed, and data was collected again. The results of this landmark study were staggering. The researchers found that tune-ups saved energy and restored lost capacity.

How much?

Average Monthly Savings From a Tune-Up $32.76
Average Cooling Capacity Restored 0.79 Tons

The researchers concluded that:

Air conditioning maintenance benefits the consumer by lowering his operating costs, increasing his comfort control capacity, and is believed to extend equipment life.

But do homeowners need a tune-up every year? To answer that question, researchers repeated the study a year later, using the same homes from the prior year. They found that 78% of the savings were present. In other words, one year of operation takes a toll on an air conditioner. It may still function adequately, but not nearly as efficiently as it should.

Average Monthly Savings From a Tune-Up After One Year Of Operation $25.60

Granted, these studies were performed years ago. That does not lessen their validity. They continue to be referenced because no one has funded additional research into the residential market. If anything, the studies understate the savings potential from a tune-up. Adjusting for inflation, the monthly savings from the first study would be $60.59 today. The savings from a tune-up after one year of operation would be $45.39. In addition, today’s air conditioners with greater efficiency levels, are more likely to need maintenance, due to changes in coil design (thinner fins, more surface area, thinner tubing, rifled tubing, etc), changes in refrigerants, and so on. For Homeowners, the bottom line is that given the low cost of a tune-up and the energy savings and restored capacity.

Summer Tips to Keep Cool

Summer is arriving and the temperatures are going to get hot. The last thing that you want to happen is your air conditioning unit to break. Just in case that it does break, we offer 24/7 emergency repair for your air conditioner. Summer can be one of the most difficult season of the year because it can put your air conditioner to the test. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when preparing for the rising temperatures!

1. Having a Good Programmable Thermostat.

A programmable thermostat will help tremendously when it comes to the electric bill. You’re able to customize the times that your unit turns on and controlling certain temperatures at certain times; thermostats such as the NEST allow you to control your unit directly from your phone. Also, when you’re not home, you can have the a/c unit set to a higher temperature or even have it turned off while you’re gone. Having a schedule for when your air conditioner turns on or off can prevent problems because it won’t put as much stress on the air conditioner.

2. Keep An Eye on The Filters.

A good way to keep your air conditioner working properly is to check the filter every so often to make sure it isn’t filled with debris or dust from your house or business. If a filter is clogged, it can prevent the air conditioner from getting the proper the air flow that it needs to be able to send air throughout the air ducts to keep the air circulating. You may find, if you have pets in your home, you may need to replace the filter more often than usual.

3. Keeping The Area Around The Outdoor Unit Cleaned.

If applicable, the area around your outdoor unit can have an effect on the air conditioner. If there are trees hovering over the unit, leaves and/or branches can fall into the unit and cause it to get clogged. Make sure to have a clean area around the units and try not to grow any vegetation too close to the units. Make sure to clean out all spaces in and around the unit.

4. Windows.

If there are a lot of windows in your home or business, the sun can penetrate the windows and cause lots of heat to rise. Having good window treatments could significantly help with the exposure too the sun. Investing in blinds or drapes can also help prevent the heat build up from the windows.

These are just some of the more important tips to keep an eye on and pay attention too. As long as you follow these tips, you should have a good running air conditioning unit without any problems. But do keep in mind, that if for any reason your air conditioner breaks or fails, we have a 24 hour service and we will be at your door step in no time to fix the problem!

Routine Spring Maintenance

Late April or Early May are perfect times to make sure your air conditioning is running perfectly for the coming summer season.

Filters should be replaced every month to allow air to flow dust and debris free. If you do not use an air filter, your unit will fill with dirt and eventually the duct system will be damaged.

Clean the drain once a month. Add a 1 cup, 50/50 ratio, of bleach and water to the air conditioner drain once a month. Adding this mixture to the drain can help prevent build-up of algae or blockage. (If you would prefer to avoid the use of bleach, another option is white vinegar a water.)

Remove debris. To clean your outside unit, first turn off the power at the shutoff box or at the circuit breaker. Then, with the brush attachment, vacuum the fins of the condenser. It is important to clear away grass, weeds and any other debris that has built up over the winter season. Finally, open the top grill and clean debris from the interior of the unit and the fan.

If you notice any major issues during the routine spring cleaning of your air conditioner, give Executive Air a call. We offer 24/7 emergency support for all of our residential and commercial customers.
