How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start enjoying a lot of warm days in Fort Lauderdale. It’s a great time to check 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 add years to its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this many times, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to replace your filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to determine how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll see better air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will push it 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 move air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Solar 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 even there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that will fit 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 properly. Yearly tune-ups will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you desire individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy costs.
