How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in Ridgedale and the Branson area. It’s a great 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 extend its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to replace your filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you take a look at your filter month after month, you’ll begin to see how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice improved air quality and an increase 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 show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be more difficult 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 questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Branson HVAC, LLC. We can help.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your cooling costs, 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 will fit your lifestyle needs.

  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s not hard to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating as it should. Yearly tune-ups will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you want individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your residence, 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 costs.
