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 Grand Prairie. It’s an ideal time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy 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 before, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to replace it more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you take a look at your filter every single month, you’ll begin to determine how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll see improved air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make 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 have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently push air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Bon Air Service Company. We can help.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your cooling costs, take time to look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.

  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s not hard to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating effectively. Yearly tune-ups have the ability to keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you want 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 improve your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
