How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start seeing more and more warm days in Anaheim. It’s an ideal time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to fully 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 changing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to exchange your filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you monitor your filter each 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 experience better 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 shorter lifespan for your system.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts show 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 would expect. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Eco Fresh HVAC Inc.. We can assist you.

  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 array of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that will fit 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 properly. 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 desire 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 enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
