Energy Savings Tip #7 – Spring is here, time to get your AC serviced

Yesterday was officially the first day of spring. You might not feel it yet, but soon the weather will warm up and the AC will be cranking away. In the summer your air conditioner is the biggest user of electricity and all of us at Oasis Energy want to help you save money.

The beginning of spring is a great time to get your air conditioner serviced. You can get someone out quickly to service it and likely get a price break. If you wait for the first hot day of the year to find out your AC unit isn’t functioning properly, you might have to sweat it out for a while and pay full price because of high demand.

Oasis Energy - Get your AC serviced

Ask the AC technician how old your unit is. If the unit is old and outdated, you might want to consider replacing it. The initial expense of a new air conditioner may seem high, but in most cases they pay for themselves in 3-5 years.

Hot summer + inefficient AC unit = High electricity bills.

Bonus Tip: Change your air filters. This is especially important going into the warm weather season. Dirty air filters don’t allow the air to pass through as easily and force your AC unit to work harder, raising your electricity bills. Plus, who wants to breathe dirty air?

Save even more money: Another way to reduce your electricity bill is to get a lower rate. That’s where Oasis Energy comes in. Check to see if Oasis Energy can lower your electricity rate (or gas).
