Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing an increase in warm days in Des Moines. It’s the perfect time to review your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some simple ideas for you to thoroughly 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 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 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 around your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice enhanced air quality and gains 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 show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently push air throughout your house. 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, ask the professionals at Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling. We can help you out.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your cooling costs, check 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 issues 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 have the ability to keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
