Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in York. It’s a great time to review your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to completely take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and increase its lifespan.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to replace it more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you check your filter month after month, you’ll begin to see how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience enhanced 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.
- 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 expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your cooling costs, 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 issues finding one that will fit 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 will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you desire individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, 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.
Half of the energy used in your house goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical.
