How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is here, we’ll start seeing a lot of warm days in Excelsior Springs. It’s the perfect time to examine 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 increase its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to replace the filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you check your filter each month, you’ll begin to see how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your home 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 force it to 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 drive 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 questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Colvin's Heating and 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 home? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble 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 properly. 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 achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
