How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start seeing a lot of warm days in Robstown. It’s the perfect time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to completely 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 extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to exchange your filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you check your filter every single month, you’ll begin to determine how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll see 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 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 drive air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at McNatt Inc. We can help.

  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 selection 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 properly. Yearly tune-ups have the ability to keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like 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.
