How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are possibly the most important asset of a home during the summer months. They offer comfort when the heat in Waldorf 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 professional air conditioner service that includes a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we definitely wouldn’t debate the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a few things you can do yourself.

At A-PLUS Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, we think it makes sense that you want to save a few bucks on your monthly energy costs, which is why we compiled 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 big difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it a challenge for your air conditioner to do its job – which means your comfort isn’t its best.
  • Seal your home’s ducts. According to the folks at ENERGY STAR, most 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 an awfully common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms closed and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t necessarily mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system accomplish its job because airflow isn’t being prevented.
  • Air conditioner service. Pros recommend that you arrange up air conditioner service with A-PLUS Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Any time you have air conditioner problems and your comfort is being sacrificed, 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 more than likely time for air conditioner service.
