Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start seeing an increase in warm days in Rochester. It’s the perfect time to review 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 increase its lifespan.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to replace it more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you monitor your filter each 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 notice better air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will push it work harder. More work could lead to a decreased lifespan for your system.
- 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 push air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, 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 Brogan Heating & AC Inc. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your cooling costs, check 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.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s not hard to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating as it should. Yearly tune-ups will help 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 home, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
