Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in Los Angeles. It’s a great time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy 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 extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to replace your filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to determine how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll see enhanced air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder. More work could lead to a decreased 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 push air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at AZ Air Conditioning and Heating. 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 around? You can find an selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that matches 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 will help keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you want individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
