How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is here, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in Alice. It’s the perfect time to review 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 extend its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this before, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to change your filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you monitor your filter every single month, you’ll begin to figure out how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice improved air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder. More work could lead to a reduced 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 push 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 concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Rescue Heating & Air . 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 home? 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 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 residence, 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 bills.
