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 McHenry. It’s a great time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some basic ideas for you to fully 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® advises changing it monthly. You may need to replace your filter more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you monitor your filter each month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience better air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation 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 contain any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your space. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at . We can help you out.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease 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 will fit 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 effectively. Yearly tune-ups have the ability to 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 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.
