Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in Safford. It’s the perfect 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 time and time again, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to change your filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you monitor your filter month after month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice enhanced air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder. More work could lead to a shorter lifespan for your system.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your ducts show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough 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 would prefer. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at B&D Air Conditioning. We can help you out.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your cooling costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t home? 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 effectively. Yearly tune-ups have the ability to keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
