How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start experiencing an increase in warm days in Brighton. It’s the perfect time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some basic 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 many times, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change the filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you take a look at your filter month after month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice better air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will force it to 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 tough for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your space. And even though your air conditioner will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at D & D Heating & AC. We can assist you.

  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 around? You can find an variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.

  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s not hard 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 add years to its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you want individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your residence, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
