Now that spring is here, we’ll start experiencing a lot of warm days in Hattiesburg. It’s a great time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some simple 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 many times, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change your filter more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you check your filter every single month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll see enhanced air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder. More work could lead to a shorter 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 home. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are concerned how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning. We can assist you.
- 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 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 difficult to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating effectively. Yearly tune-ups have the ability to keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help add years to 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 achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
