How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start enjoying more and more warm days in Ronkonkoma. It’s a great time to review your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some simple ideas for you to thoroughly take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and increase its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this many times, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change your filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you check your filter month after month, you’ll begin to see how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll see better air quality and improvements 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 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 drive air throughout your house. 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 concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Cool Power LLC . We can help you out.

  3. 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 array of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that meets 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 as it should. Yearly tune-ups can 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 do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.

 

Half of the energy used in your residence goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key. At Cool Power LLC , we can help assure your heating and cooling system is operating at its best.
