How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioner’s Efficiency 04/05/2016 Now that spring is here, we’ll start seeing a lot of warm days in La Puente. It’s the perfect time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and add years to its lifespan. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter 1.You’ve heard this before, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to change the filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you take a look at your filter every single month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your house 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 push it work harder. More work could lead to a decreased lifespan for your system. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly If your ducts show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be more difficult for your system to efficiently move air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Temp Air System Inc. We can help you out. 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 home? You can find an variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that matches your lifestyle needs. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up It’s not hard to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating effectively. Yearly tune-ups have the ability to keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help extend 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 accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats.
