SAFETY - RELIABILITY - LONG SERVICE LIFE
Has it been a while since your air conditioner has been serviced?  Call to schedule an appointment with Berg's Heating and Air Conditioning. Don't let a clogged condensate drain drip on the furnace controls or a dirty coil cause a frozen air conditioner. Examples

AVERAGE SERVICE LIFE
The typical service life of an air conditioner is about 15-18 years. However, a well maintained air conditioner can have an increased service life because it operates effectively to keep your home cool. Ask about our annual maintenance program.

THREE WAYS TO INCREASE EFFICIENCY
1)  Change the air filter every 1-3 months, as this is the simplest way to maintain high efficiency.   I recommend a basic $5-8 pleated filter. Stay away from the high dollar $15-20 filters because they can reduce air flow, drop efficiency, and cause air conditioners to freeze up. Examples

2)  Adjust your thermostat setting when you leave home to save energy while you're out. Installing a programmable thermostat can save as much as 20% on utilities compared to a non-programable thermostat.  

Because air conditioners are designed to maintain a constant temperature, you should leave the air conditioner on during the day. If you have a programmable thermostat you can set the temperature to be 5℉ above your desired setting while away from home and have it come on one hour before you return. For example, if you want the temperature to be 75℉ at 5:00 pm, set the thermostat to 80℉ during the day and program it to drop to 75℉ at 4:00 pm.

3) Have a service technician clean and inspect the air conditioner once a year to keep it operating efficiently. Ask about our annual maintenance program.

FACT: Freon is not used in home air conditioners. Freon is a trade name for R-12, which was used in cars until 1994. Freon was phased out because of its ozone depleting properties. [1]

FACT: R-22 is used in home air conditioners, but will be phased out by 2020 because of its ozone depleting properties. R-22 is being replaced by R-410A, an environmentally safer  refrigerant. [2]

FACT: In January 2006, 13 SEER air conditioners became the minimum standard for new air conditioner efficiency.  [3]
