How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start enjoying an increase in warm days in Paso Robles. It’s the perfect time to check 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 extend 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® advises changing it monthly. You may need to replace your filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you monitor your filter every single month, you’ll begin to figure out how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience better air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation 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 tough for your system to efficiently drive 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 questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Paso Robles Heating and Air. We can assist you.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your cooling costs, check into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find an variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.

  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s not difficult to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating as it should. Yearly tune-ups will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help extend 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 enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
