Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start enjoying a lot of warm days in Arlington. 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 add years to its lifespan.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s instructions. If you monitor your filter month after month, you’ll begin to figure out how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience improved air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will push it work harder. More work could lead to a reduced lifespan for your system.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your ducts show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your space. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning. We can help you out.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To lower 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 selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating effectively. Yearly tune-ups can keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you want 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.
