How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in Circleville. It’s a great time to check 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 exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to exchange the filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you check your filter every single month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience improved air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering 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 show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc. We can assist you.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your cooling costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that meets 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 as it should. Yearly tune-ups will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you desire 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 you money.
