Improving Your Air Conditioner’s Efficiency – Part 2
In addition to Part 1 of improving your air conditioner’s efficiency, we’ve added a few more helpful tips. Florida summers can be brutal, so we’ve compiled a list of tips to make Summer 2018 a comfortable one. Let’s conquer the summer heat with one tip at a time.
Check your Air Filter Once a Month
Checking the air filter continuously throughout the year can eliminate problems with your HVAC system. During the summer months, dust and other allergens increase due to the humidity in the air. These allergens can cause the filter to become clogged and signal your air conditioner to work double time in order to supply cool air in your home. By monitoring and replacing your air filters when convenient, your air conditioner will continue to operate effectively.
The Yearly Check-Up
Just like us, our air conditioners need check-ups as well. Yearly maintenance checks will not only help you maintain a high quality operating HVAC system, but it also saves you money down the road. Maintenance checks extend the life of your HVAC and lessens the need for repairs. The air quality in your home will remain efficient and healthy because the coils and filters will be cleaned and/or replaced. Keeping up with yearly maintenance will prevent issues you never knew you had.
Consider a Thermostat Upgrade
While current thermostats have been the main source of control for our air conditioners, consider the convenience of upgrading. Smart thermostats are on the rise. Why, you ask? Because smart thermostats and its technology are the next generation of temperature regulation. The climate of your home is at your fingertips. With smart thermostats, you are able to adjust the thermostat via smartphone. And if that wasn’t mind-blowing enough, smart thermostats also provide helpful features that allow you to conserve energy and save money. Who doesn’t like to save money? These features send you reminders for filter replacements, energy reports, and suggest ways to conserve energy.
