How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in Denton. It’s a great time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some simple ideas for you to completely take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and increase its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but replacing 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 instructions. If you monitor 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 notice improved 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.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently move air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Oak Point Heating and Air LLC. We can assist you.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower 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 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 properly. Yearly tune-ups can 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 house, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
