Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing a lot of warm days in Hasbrouck Heights. It’s an ideal time to check 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.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to change the filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you monitor your filter every single 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 see enhanced air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will push it 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 more difficult 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 expect to be. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at ACE Solutions. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To lower your cooling costs, take time to 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 will fit 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 effectively. Yearly tune-ups can keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you want individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your house, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy costs.
Half of the energy used in your home goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical. At ACE Solutions, we can help assure your heating and cooling system is operating at its best.
