How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start seeing more and more warm days in Tucker. It’s an ideal 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 many times, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to change the filter more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice enhanced air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will push 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 have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder 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 would prefer. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at ACS Heating and Air Conditioning. We can assist you.

  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 around? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that meets 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 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 desire individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your house, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy costs.

 

Half of the energy used in your house goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical.
