Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start enjoying a lot of warm days in Brandon. 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.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to exchange the filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to figure out how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll see improved air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder. More work could lead to a reduced lifespan for your system.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently move air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Brandon Heating and Plumbing. 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 even there? You can find an variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that meets 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 will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.
