How to Take Advantage of Your Air Conditioners Efficiency

Now that spring is here, we’ll start seeing an increase in warm days in Winnipeg. It’s the perfect time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to thoroughly take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and increase its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this before, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to see how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience improved air quality and an increase 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 have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be more difficult 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 prefer. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning. We can assist you.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your cooling costs, 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 challenges finding one that will fit 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 effectively. Yearly tune-ups will help 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 achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
