How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is here, we’ll start enjoying a lot of warm days in Omaha. It’s an ideal time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and extend its lifespan.

 

  1. 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® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you monitor your filter month after month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll see enhanced air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation 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 have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently move air throughout your home. 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.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease 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 trouble finding one that meets 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 as it should. Yearly tune-ups have the ability to keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you desire individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your house, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
