How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start enjoying an increase in warm days in Irvine. It’s a great time to review 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 add years to its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this many times, 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 recommendation. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to figure out how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice better air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering 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 contain any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your space. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at True Home Heating and Air Conditioning. We can help.

  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 selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that matches 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 want 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.
