How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start seeing more and more warm days in Chatsworth. It’s an ideal 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 increase its lifespan.

 

  1. 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® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to change your filter more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you check your filter each month, you’ll begin to figure out how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice enhanced air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will push it work harder. More work could lead to a decreased lifespan for your system.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts have 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 extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at True Temp Heating & Air Inc. We can help you out.

  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 home? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that meets 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 properly. 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 desire 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 enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
