Now that spring is here, we’ll start seeing more and more warm days in Mobile. It’s an ideal time to check 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 extend its lifespan.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this before, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you take a look at 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 notice enhanced air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder. More work could lead to a reduced lifespan for your system.
- 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 house. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. We can help you out.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your cooling costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that will fit your lifestyle needs.
- 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 have the ability to keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.
- 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 improve your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
Half of the energy used in your house goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key.
