Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start enjoying a lot of warm days in Omaha. It’s a great time to review 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 extend its lifespan.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this many times, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you monitor your filter every single month, you’ll begin to determine how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience enhanced air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will make 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 push air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at The Frazier Company. We can assist you.
- 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 variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that will fit your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating effectively. Yearly tune-ups will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you want 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 increase your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
