How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

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.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this many times, 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, contingent on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you take a look at your filter every single 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 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 reduced lifespan for your system.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be more difficult for your system to efficiently move air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling. We can help.

  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 variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.

  4. 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.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like 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 bills.
