Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start seeing an increase in warm days in Bend. It’s an ideal time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to completely 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 before, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to change the filter more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you check your filter each month, you’ll begin to figure out how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll see better air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering 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 show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough 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 expect to be. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Tri County Climate Control LLC. We can assist you.
- 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 selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that will fit your lifestyle needs.
- 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 can keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you desire individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your house, a zoned heating and cooling system can achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
