How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start seeing an increase in warm days in Murrieta. 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 extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to exchange your filter more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you check your filter month after month, you’ll begin to see how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice improved air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make 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 have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently push air throughout your house. 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 questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Cool Air Solutions. We can help you out.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your cooling costs, 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 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 properly. Yearly tune-ups will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help add years to 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 achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.

 

Half of the energy used in your home goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical. At Cool Air Solutions, we can help assure your heating and cooling system is working at its best.
