April 05, 2016

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start enjoying an increase in warm days in Muldrow. It’s an ideal time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to fully 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 before, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change your filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you check your filter month after month, you’ll begin to see how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice better air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will push it 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 harder for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your home. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, 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 Air Service Co.. We can help you out.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your cooling costs, take time to look 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 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 properly. Yearly tune-ups have the ability to keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you desire 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 enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
