How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is here, we’ll start experiencing an increase in warm days in Lodi. It’s the perfect time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some basic ideas for you to thoroughly take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and add years to its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this before, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you monitor your filter month after month, you’ll begin to determine how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice improved air quality and gains 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.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be more difficult for your system to efficiently move air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning. We can help.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your cooling costs, take time to look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that matches 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 extend its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
