How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in Magnolia. It’s a great time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some simple ideas for you to thoroughly take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and extend its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this before, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to exchange the filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to determine how regularly 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 force it to 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 move air throughout your space. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at JTech Mechanical. 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 around? You can find an array 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 effectively. 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 home, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
