How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start enjoying more and more warm days in Hamilton. It’s a great time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some basic 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 time and time again, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to change your filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you monitor your filter each month, you’ll begin to see how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll see enhanced 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 reduced lifespan for your system.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts contain any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be more difficult for your system to efficiently push air throughout your space. 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 questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC. We can assist you.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your cooling costs, take time to look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that meets 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 can keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.

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