Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start enjoying more and more warm days in Pacheco. 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 extend its lifespan.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to replace your filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you monitor your filter month after month, you’ll begin to see how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice improved air quality and an increase 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 have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be more difficult 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 expect. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Clean Air HVAC. We can assist you.
- 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 selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.
- 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 can keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you want 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 improve your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
