How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is here, we’ll start seeing more and more warm days in Derby. It’s a great time to review 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 many times, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you monitor your filter each month, you’ll begin to determine how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll see improved air quality and improvements 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 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 questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning. We can help you out.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your cooling costs, take time to look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find an selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that meets 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 can keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.

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