April 05, 2016

Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start experiencing a lot of warm days in Holdrege. It’s a great time to examine 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 extend its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this many times, but changing your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to replace it more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you check your filter every single month, you’ll begin to see how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice enhanced air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder. More work could lead to a decreased lifespan for your system.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be more difficult for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your space. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, 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 Durable Service . We can help.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your cooling costs, check into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no issues finding one that matches 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 properly. 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 home, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.
