How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start experiencing a lot of warm days in Carson City. It’s the perfect time to examine 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 add years to 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® advises changing it monthly. You may need to exchange it more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you monitor your filter month after month, you’ll begin to see how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll see better air quality and gains 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.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts contain any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be more difficult 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 Anderson Heating & A/C. We can assist you.

  3. 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 selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges 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 add years to its lifespan.

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