How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is here, we’ll start enjoying an increase in warm days in Kingsville. It’s the perfect time to review 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 extend its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to exchange the filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to figure out how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice enhanced air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will push 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 have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be more difficult 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 concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC. 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 around? You can find an variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues 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 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.
