Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in Phoenix. It’s an ideal time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some basic ideas for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and increase its lifespan.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this before, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to replace the filter more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s instructions. If you take a look at your filter every single month, you’ll begin to see how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll see enhanced air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder. More work could lead to a reduced lifespan for your system.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your ducts contain any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently push air throughout your space. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc. We can help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To lower your cooling costs, 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 easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating as it should. 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 house, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy costs.
