How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start seeing more and more warm days in Alliance. It’s a great time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and extend its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this many times, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to replace it more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you check your filter month after month, you’ll begin to determine how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience improved air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder. More work could lead to a shorter lifespan for your system.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces. We can help you out.

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

  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s not hard to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating properly. 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 residence, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy costs.
