With the warmth of spring enveloping Gulf Shores and surrounding communities, from the sun-soaked beaches of Orange Beach to the quaint streets of Fairhope, the time has come to turn our attention to the comfort of our homes. As the mercury rises, so does the demand on our air conditioning systems, each household seeking respite from Alabama’s characteristic warmth and humidity. However, amidst this seasonal shift, it’s paramount to approach our cooling needs with an eye for energy efficiency — not only to keep our homes comfortable but also to ensure we’re treading lightly on both our wallets and our beautiful Gulf Coast environment.

At Roberts Cooling, Heating & Plumbing, we’re more than just your go-to experts for HVAC & Plumbing needs; we’re your neighbors, dedicated to ensuring every resident in Gulf Shores, Foley, Elberta, Summerdale, and beyond enjoys a comfortable, energy-efficient home. Here’s our guide to keeping your air conditioning system running efficiently in our humid Southern Alabama climate.

Embrace Regular Maintenance

A well-maintained air conditioning unit is an efficient one. Regular check-ups, preferably before the full onset of summer, can ensure your system is running as smoothly as seagulls gliding over Orange Beach at sunrise. Our team of experts specializes in thorough inspections that can identify and rectify any potential issues, ensuring your system is optimized for efficiency and longevity. Remember, prevention is better (and often cheaper) than cure.

Upgrade Thoughtfully

If your air conditioning system is older than the legend of pirate treasure in Gulf Shores, it might be time to consider an upgrade. Modern HVAC systems are designed with energy efficiency in mind, utilizing technology that can significantly reduce your energy consumption and costs. Our knowledgeable team can guide you through the options, focusing on systems that offer the best efficiency ratings suitable for our unique climate. Plus, our 100% Money-Back Guarantee ensures your peace of mind with any investment.

Smart Thermostats: Your New Best Friend

In a region where the weather can change as quickly as the tides, a smart thermostat can be a game-changer. These ingenious devices learn from your habits, adjusting your home’s temperature to your routine, thus ensuring you’re not cooling an empty house on those long summer days spent at Fairhope’s festivals or Foley’s markets. With remote access via your smartphone, you can always come back to a cool, welcoming home.

Seal and Insulate

Efficiency isn’t just about the air conditioning unit; it’s about keeping the cool air where it belongs — inside your home. Gulf Shores and its neighboring towns are full of beautiful homes, each with its own character and quirks. Unfortunately, some of those quirks may include drafts and leaks. Our Property Protection Guarantee ensures we treat your home with the utmost care as we seal and insulate, preventing your cooled air from escaping into the sultry Southern Alabama air.

Utilize Ceiling Fans

Contrary to popular belief, ceiling fans don’t lower the temperature — they cool people by moving air. In our humid climate, this movement can make a room feel up to 4 degrees cooler, allowing you to set your thermostat a little higher and save significantly on your energy bills. Plus, there’s nothing quite like the gentle lull of a ceiling fan to accompany those late-night chats on the porch.
