Now that spring is here, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in West Valley City. It’s an ideal time to check 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 increase its lifespan.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this before, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to replace the filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you monitor your filter each month, you’ll begin to see how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience enhanced air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will push it work harder. More work could lead to a decreased 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 drive air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning. We can help you out.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease 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 variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that will fit your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s not difficult to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating effectively. Yearly tune-ups will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you want individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your residence, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
