How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are potentially the most critical asset of a home during warmer months. They offer comfort when the heat in Hurricane is at its fieriest and helps keep your environment just like you 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 certainly wouldn’t argue the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a number of things you can try yourself.

At Teays Valley Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, 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 probably the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a big difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it tough for your air conditioner to do its job – which means your comfort is compromised.
  • 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 as a result of duct leaks and other duct problems.
  • Open your vents. It’s a pretty 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 arrange up air conditioner service with Teays Valley Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. 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 a problem with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s probably time for air conditioner service.
