Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start enjoying an increase in warm days in Muskogee. It’s a great time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some simple 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 changing your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to exchange the filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you check your filter every single month, you’ll begin to see how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice improved air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup 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 tough for your system to efficiently push air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc.. 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 challenges finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy 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 extend its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you want individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
