How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start enjoying an increase in warm days in Westminster. It’s a great time to review your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and add years to its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this before, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to exchange it more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you check your filter each month, you’ll begin to see how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice enhanced air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make 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 more difficult 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 wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at True Heating & Cooling. We can help you out.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your cooling costs, check 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 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 as it should. 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 want 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 bills.
