How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing an increase in warm days in Phoenix. It’s the perfect time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy 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 before, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to replace the filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you take a look at your filter month after month, you’ll begin to see how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience better 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 reduced lifespan for your system.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts contain any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be more difficult for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Integrity AC & Heating LLC. We can assist you.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your cooling costs, take time to look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that matches 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 will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase 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 accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
