Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start experiencing an increase in warm days in Eastland. It’s a great time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some basic ideas for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and increase its lifespan.
- 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® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to exchange the filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you check your filter month after month, you’ll begin to see how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice enhanced air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder. More work could lead to a shorter 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 space. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, 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 J & J Air Conditioning. We can help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
