Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start seeing a lot of warm days in Greensburg. It’s an ideal time to examine 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 exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to exchange your filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you check your filter each month, you’ll begin to figure out how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll see enhanced air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder. More work could lead to a reduced lifespan for your system.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your ducts show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently push air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Wallpe Heating & Cooling. We can help.
- 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 even there? You can find an selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s not difficult 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.
- Zoned Heating
If you want individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your house, a zoned heating and cooling system can achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
