How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start enjoying a lot of warm days in Laguna Niguel. It’s the perfect time to review your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some basic ideas for you to thoroughly take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and extend its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change the filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you monitor your filter each month, you’ll begin to figure out how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll see improved air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will push it work harder. More work could lead to a shorter lifespan for your system.

  2. 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 drive air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating . We can help.

  3. 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 around? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.

  4. 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 increase its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
