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 Cape Coral. It’s the perfect time to review 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.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to see how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely around 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 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 harder for your system to efficiently move air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Comfort Zone Inc. We can help you out.

  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 home? 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 hard 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 desire 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 increase your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
