How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in Cape Coral. It’s an ideal time to check 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 extend its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this many times, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to exchange it more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you monitor your filter each month, you’ll begin to figure out how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice enhanced air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will force it to 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 house. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, 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 Comfort Zone Inc. We can help.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your cooling costs, take time to look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t around? 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 easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating properly. Yearly tune-ups will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help extend 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 accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
