How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing an increase in warm days in Macon. It’s the perfect time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy 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® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you monitor your filter month after 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 improved air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering 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 show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently move air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, 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 Temperature Control. We can help.

  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 around? 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 not hard 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 would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your residence, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
