It’s the perfect time to review your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to completely take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and extend its lifespan. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter 1.You’ve heard this before, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to exchange the filter more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you monitor your filter each month, you’ll begin to determine how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience enhanced air quality and gains in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder. More work could lead to a shorter lifespan for your system. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly If your ducts show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently move air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Mr. Air Repair . We can assist you.
