April 05, 2016

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start enjoying an increase in warm days in Montoursville. It’s a great 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 add years to its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this many times, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to replace the filter more or less frequently, depending on your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you take a look at your filter month after month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience better air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make 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 contain any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough 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 expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Airmen HVAC Service. We can help.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce 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 variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that will fit your lifestyle needs.

  4. 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 can keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you desire individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your house, a zoned heating and cooling system can achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
