How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Now that spring is here, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in Hamilton. It’s a great time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some simple ideas for you to thoroughly 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 changing your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to replace the filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you take a look at your filter month after month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll see 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 shorter 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 more difficult for your system to efficiently push 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 concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC. We can help you out.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your cooling costs, check 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 matches 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 effectively. Yearly tune-ups can 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 do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy costs.
