How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

April 05, 2016

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

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this before, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to exchange the filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you monitor your filter every single month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll see improved air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will push 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 push air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Assured Appliance and Heating & Air. We can help you out.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your cooling costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t around? You can find an selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that matches 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 increase its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you desire individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
