How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Now that spring is here, we’ll start experiencing an increase in warm days in Katy. It’s an ideal time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some simple ideas for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and add years to its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to replace it more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice better air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will push it work harder. More work could lead to a shorter 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 harder for your system to efficiently move air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Goode Bros AC & Heating. We can help.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your cooling costs, check into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t around? You can find an array 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 properly. Yearly tune-ups can keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your residence, a zoned heating and cooling system can achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
