Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start experiencing an increase in warm days in Northglenn. It’s a great time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some basic ideas for you to thoroughly take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and increase its lifespan.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this many times, 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, per your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you monitor your filter month after month, you’ll begin to see how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll see enhanced air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation 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 would prefer. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. We can help you out.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease 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 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 not hard 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.
- Zoned Heating
If you would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy costs.
Half of the energy used in your house goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical.
