Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start enjoying a lot of warm days in East Bernard. It’s the perfect time to review 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 extend its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to exchange the filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you check your filter month after month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice improved air quality and gains 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 more difficult for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working extra, 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 E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service. We can assist you.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your cooling costs, take time to look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t around? You can find an variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that meets 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 effectively. Yearly tune-ups will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help extend 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 accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
