Tips for Using Your Air Conditioning
When living in Florida, where summertime temperatures frequently reach the high nineties and humidity can be oppressive, air conditioning is an important part of life. To ensure the comfort of our residents, each PepperTree apartment home features central air conditioning. In order to keep the cost of your electric bill down and avoid excessive wear on your air conditioner, there are some tips that you, the resident, should follow.
Change the air filter monthly. Not only does this keep the air being circulated into your apartment cleaner, it also helps the air conditioning unit to function properly, because the unit won’t have to struggle to pull air through a filter clogged with dust. Check with the front office if you are unsure what type of filter to use or where to get them.
Do not turn the air conditioner completely off during the summer months, even if you will be leaving the apartment for an extended period of time. When you return to the apartment, it will be extremely hot, and it will actually take more energy for the air conditioner to lower the temperature in the apartment than it would if it had just maintained a constant temperature the entire time. If you want to save energy while you are gone, just turn the air conditioner up a few degrees.
Report any problems with your air conditioner to management right away. Often, a small problem can be fixed quickly, but if left untreated, small problems can turn into big problems that lengthen the repair time.
If you have any questions about the air conditioning unit in your PepperTree apartment by The Villages, FL, do not hesitate to contact our onsite management team.
