April 05, 2016

Now that spring is upon us, we’ll start experiencing a lot of warm days in Marshfield. It’s an ideal time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some simple ideas for you to completely 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 time and time again, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to exchange your filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you monitor your filter month after month, you’ll begin to see how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely through your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll see improved air quality and an increase in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder. More work could lead to a shorter 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 push air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at House of Heating Incorporated. We can help you out.

  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 home? You can find an selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that meets 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 can 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 house, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
