Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in New Castle. It’s the perfect time to review your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some basic ideas for you to completely 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 changing your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to exchange it more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you monitor your filter month after month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience improved air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will push it work harder. More work could lead to a reduced lifespan for your system.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts contain any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your space. 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, call the professionals at Central Heating & Plumbing. We can assist you.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your cooling costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t around? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that meets 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 properly. Yearly tune-ups will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.

  5. 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 costs.
