How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is here, we’ll start experiencing an increase in warm days in Wharton. It’s an ideal 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 add years to its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this many times, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you monitor your filter every single month, you’ll begin to figure out how often 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 gains in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will push it work harder. More work could lead to a reduced lifespan for your system.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts contain any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently move air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Faust Air Conditioning and Heating. 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 even there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that matches 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 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 accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy costs.
