How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start experiencing a lot of warm days in Middle Georgia. It’s a great time to review 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 extend its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this before, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to exchange the filter more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s instructions. If you take a look at your filter month after month, you’ll begin to figure out how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience 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 shorter 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 home. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, 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 Air Concepts of Middle Georgia. 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 trouble 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 would like 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 improve your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
