Thermostat settings on your air conditioning system are most times directed by personal preference as well as energy savings preference.
For example, the Energy Star program recommends a setting of 78 degrees for conserving energy and staying comfortable while you’re in the home – plus, programming your thermostat for higher temperatures when you’re away during the day.
Others might be more comfortable at 75 degrees, or lower. Again, it’s a balance between your personal comfort and your desire to save on energy usage.
Then there are those other very unfortunate times when the temperatures in your house are not at all what you want them to be. And with growing discomfort, you watch those temperatures inside your house rise to 80, 85, 88… Not good. Not good at all.
However, there’s one solution we recommend as your best option to avoid this scenario. Please take a moment and look at this report, Why Your Air Conditioning System Needs Prep Work for Summer’s Long, Hot Run.

Maintenance is a never-ending project. No matter the season, there is something that must be cleaned, repaired, changed out or replaced altogether. The simple truth is that nothing lasts forever and for something to last any length of time at all, it must be taken care of.
This particular time of year, it is your furnace that needs to be taken care of. While you can use it without having it serviced, it does not work out in your favor. Regular maintenance of your furnace is essential to it working properly.
By using your furnace without having it serviced, you not only are spending more on energy costs, but you are also blowing allergens that have gathered all summer long in your vents and filters into the air you are breathing.
At Robin Aire Heating and Cooling, we understand that while you know it is necessary to maintain your home comfort system, you may not necessarily want to do it, so we make the process as painless and easy as possible. Click here to schedule your tune-up or call us today at (800) 361-0888.
A lot of us in the technical trades would really enjoy being able to explain the ins and outs of air conditioning systems to anyone who will listen. Oh, we could fill your afternoon with tales of the forced-air distribution system and explain for your listening pleasure the difference between the evaporator component on the inside and the condenser component on the outside.
If you’re like most of our customers, however, you’re not into the full-length description of how your system works. But I can promise you, you’ll like knowing how your system can perform better.
So I’ll save my technical jargon for my coffee break with the techs. And for you, let me offer up the most important factor for increased energy efficiency, improved performance and lengthened operational life for your air conditioning system. Regular maintenance.
Experts will tell you, your air conditioning system loses about 5% of its efficiency for every year that it goes without regular maintenance. And that’s just one way that skipping the maintenance routine can turn into a costly habit.
