How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start enjoying an increase in warm days in Manassas Park. It’s an ideal time to check 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 add years to 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 replace the filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you check your filter each month, you’ll begin to figure out how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll see enhanced air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder. More work could lead to a decreased 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 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 concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Woody's Sudden Service Inc. We can assist you.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your cooling costs, take time to 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 trouble finding one that will fit your lifestyle needs.

  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating effectively. Yearly tune-ups can 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 house, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy costs.
