Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start enjoying more and more warm days in Oxford. It’s a great time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy 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 so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to exchange it more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to see how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice better air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder. More work could lead to a decreased lifespan for your system.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently push air throughout your house. 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, talk to the professionals at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. We can assist you.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your cooling costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t around? 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 not hard to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating effectively. Yearly tune-ups have the ability to keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you desire individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve 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 important.
