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 like you like it. So how can you help your air conditioner run better?

The answer is first and foremost expert air conditioner service that has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we certainly 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, 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:

  • Change your home’s air filter. It’s probably the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a world of 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, typical 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 an awfully common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms shut and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t always mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system accomplish its job because airflow isn’t being inhibited.
  • Air conditioner service. Pros recommend that you set up air conditioner service with A-PLUS Service Experts. Any time you have air conditioner issues and your comfort is being jeopardized, 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 more than likely time for air conditioner service. Give A-PLUS Service Experts in Waldorf a call at 301-747-3140 or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
