Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start seeing more and more warm days in Florissant. It’s an ideal time to examine 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 increase its lifespan.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this many times, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to replace it more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to determine how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice enhanced air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup 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 show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently move air throughout your space. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at B & B Heating & Cooling. We can assist you.
- 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 challenges finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s not hard to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating as it should. Yearly tune-ups have the ability to keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
