Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in Belton. It’s the perfect time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some simple ideas for you to thoroughly take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and extend its lifespan.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this before, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you check your filter month after month, you’ll begin to figure out how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice enhanced air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will make it 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 harder for your system to efficiently push air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Bell Air Conditioning Inc.. We can help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your cooling costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that will fit 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 have the ability to keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your residence, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
Half of the energy used in your house goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key.
