Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas. It’s an ideal 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 increase its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this before, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to replace it more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s instructions. If you take a look at your filter month after month, you’ll begin to determine how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice better air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder. More work could lead to a shorter lifespan for your system.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently push air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Innovative Mechanical, LLC. We can help.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower 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 will fit 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 would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your residence, a zoned heating and cooling system can achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
