How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioner’s Efficiency

Now that spring is here, we’ll start seeing an increase in warm days in Rock Hill. It’s an ideal time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some basic ideas for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and increase its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but changing 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, contingent on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you monitor your filter every single 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 see improved air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will push it work harder. More work could lead to a shorter 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 expect to be. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at US Air Heating and Cooling. We can help you out.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your cooling costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t around? You can find an selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.

  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s not difficult 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.

  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 on energy costs.
