How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start seeing more and more warm days in Dresden. It’s the perfect time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some basic 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 exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you monitor your filter every single month, you’ll begin to determine how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll see better air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder. More work could lead to a reduced 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 tough for your system to efficiently move air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at McFadden Heating & Cooling. We can help you out.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your cooling costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that matches 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 increase 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 achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy costs.
