Monday, May 21st, 2018

Flushed man feeling hot in front of a fanWith temperatures already on a warming trend, there’s a good chance you’re getting some use from your air conditioner. It might not be for long stretches (we are still getting some cooler weather at night), however you are probably using it enough to discover whether or not you need air conditioning repair in Clearfield, UT. For instance, if you’re using your air conditioner but not feeling air as cool as you should, then there’s a problem!

Why Are My Cooling Costs So High?

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

cooing-costs-high-whyOur winters may reach bitterly cold temperatures, but that doesn’t mean we get much relief during the summer. That’s right: each summer you’ll see higher electrical bills than you would in the spring or fall.

The electricity needed to run your AC motors and the compressor certainly does add up and can leave you feeling pretty broke during the summer.

But are you spending more than you should be on your cooling costs? If your bills start to rise higher than what you saw last year, or are more expensive in comparison to your neighbors despite comparable use, then something may be amiss with your cooling system. While in some cases this may necessitate a Clearfield, UT air conditioning repair, the problem may be simpler to solve than that. Keep reading to learn more!
