How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing a lot of warm days in Wheeling. It’s an ideal time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some simple ideas for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and add years to its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this many times, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to exchange your filter more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s instructions. If you check your filter each month, you’ll begin to see how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice improved air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder. More work could lead to a decreased lifespan for your system.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently move air throughout your space. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Local HVAC Repair & Service . We can assist you.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your cooling costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that will fit your lifestyle needs.

  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating effectively. Yearly tune-ups have the ability to keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you want individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your house, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy costs.
