Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing a lot of warm days in Norco and St. Charles Parish. It’s the perfect time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to completely 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 time and time again, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you monitor your filter month after month, you’ll begin to figure out how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll see better air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will force it to 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 more difficult 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, ask the professionals at Mayeuxs AC & Heating. We can help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your cooling costs, check 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 challenges finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s not difficult to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating as it should. Yearly tune-ups can keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you desire individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your residence, a zoned heating and cooling system can achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
