Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start seeing more and more warm days in Bartlesville. It’s an ideal time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some simple 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 before, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to replace the filter more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you take a look at your filter month after month, you’ll begin to figure out how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice enhanced air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will push it work harder. More work could lead to a decreased lifespan for your system.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your ducts contain 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 would expect. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Farris Heating & Air. We can help you out.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your cooling costs, take time to look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s not difficult to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating properly. Yearly tune-ups will help 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 improve your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy costs.
