How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing a lot of warm days in Saint Charles. It’s the perfect time to review 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 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 change your filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you monitor your filter month after month, you’ll begin to determine how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice 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 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 overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Air Alliance Team. We can help you out.

  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 home? You can find an variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that will fit 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 can keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you want individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your residence, a zoned heating and cooling system can achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy costs.
