April 05, 2016

Now that spring is here, we’ll start enjoying an increase in warm days in Booneville. It’s the perfect time to examine 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.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this before, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change the filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you check your filter month after month, you’ll begin to determine how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience better air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder. More work could lead to a shorter 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 drive air throughout your space. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC. We can help you out.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your cooling costs, check into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.

  4. 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 have the ability to keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you want individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your residence, 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.
