Now that spring is here, we’ll start seeing a lot of warm days in Pflugerville. It’s a great 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 many times, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to replace the filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you check your filter month after month, you’ll begin to see how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll see improved air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will push it 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 harder for your system to efficiently push air throughout your space. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning. We can help you out.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your cooling costs, check into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that will fit your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s not difficult 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.
