How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are potentially the most critical asset of a home during the summer months. They provide comfort when the heat in Hurricane is at its fieriest and helps keep your environment just as you’d like it. So how can you help your air conditioner run better?

The answer is first and foremost premier air conditioner service that has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we definitely wouldn’t debate the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a number of things you can try yourself.

At Teays Valley Service Experts, we think it makes sense that you want to save some on your monthly energy costs, which is why we put together this list for you to consider:

  • Swap your home’s air filter. It’s likely the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a world of difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it tough for your air conditioner to do its job – which means your comfort suffers.
  • Seal your home’s ducts. According to the folks at ENERGY STAR, many homes can lose between 20 and 30 percent of the air that passes through them due to duct leaks and other duct issues.
  • Open your vents. It’s a very common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms closed off and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t always mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system do its job because airflow isn’t being repressed.
  • Air conditioner service. Experts recommend that you set up air conditioner service with Teays Valley Service Experts. Any time you have air conditioner issues and your comfort is being compromised, call in the experts.

If you’ve checked all of these tips and you’re still running in to an issue with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s most likely time for air conditioner service. Give Teays Valley Service Experts in Hurricane a call at 304-760-5088 or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
