Now that spring is here, we’ll start enjoying more and more warm days in Wharton. It’s the perfect time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy 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 exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to replace the filter more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s instructions. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to see how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice improved air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will push it 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 extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Faust Air Conditioning and Heating. We can help you out.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To lower your cooling costs, 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.
- 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.
- Zoned Heating
If you want individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your house, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
