How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start enjoying more and more warm days in Oxford. It’s an ideal time to review 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 add years to its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this many times, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to exchange it more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you check your filter each month, you’ll begin to see how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice better air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder. More work could lead to a reduced lifespan for your system.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts contain any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently move air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. We can assist you.

  3. 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 array of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.

  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating as it should. Yearly tune-ups will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you want individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, 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 costs.

 

Half of the energy used in your home goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical.
