Keep your air conditioner running hand in hand with energy efficiency to take advantage of both comfort and savings.
In today’s day and age, everyone is looking to improve, simplify, and streamline to achieve higher efficiencies, especially energy efficiency. When it comes to your air conditioner, there are some helpful steps you can take to improve your unit’s efficiency:
- Change Your Air Filter: The number one and simplest way to improve your air conditioning system’s efficiency is to keep on top of changing/replacing your system’s filter. This should be done at least once a month. Not only do filters help to keep your air cleaner, they also keep dirt and other particle material from building up on important parts of your air conditioner.
- Stay on Top of Maintenance: Those yearly or bi-yearly tune-ups and inspections really go a long way in making sure your air conditioning system is working as efficiently as possible. Not only will potential costly repairs be caught before they snow ball, but the simple fact is that the better maintained a system is, the better it will perform.
- Check for Leaks in Air Ducts: Air ducts carry and move your home’s air; therefore they are an essential part of your air conditioning system and its efficiency. It is important not to overlook checking your ducts for leaks when looking into making sure your system is giving a top notch air conditioning performance.
- Keep it Clean: Your air conditioning system will work much harder than it has to if it is dirty. When it comes to a dirty unit, the hotter the day, the higher the utility bill.
