Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing an increase in warm days in Carson City. It’s an ideal time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some simple ideas for you to completely take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and add years to its lifespan.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this many times, 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, contingent on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you monitor your filter each month, you’ll begin to determine how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience better air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder. More work could lead to a shorter 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 drive air throughout your space. And even though your air conditioner will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Anderson Heating & A/C. We can help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your cooling costs, check into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t around? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy 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.
- Zoned Heating
If you want individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your house, 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.
Half of the energy used in your home goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical. At Anderson Heating & A/C, we can help assure your heating and cooling system is running at its best.
