How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Now that spring is here, we’ll start seeing an increase in warm days in Derby. It’s an ideal time to examine 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 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 very important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to replace it more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you monitor your filter each month, you’ll begin to determine how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll see enhanced air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will push it work harder. More work could lead to a decreased 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 push 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 questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to 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 array of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that will fit 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 add years to 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 achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
