Now that spring is here, we’ll start seeing an increase in warm days in Lexington. It’s a great time to check your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and extend 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 very important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to replace the filter more or less frequently, per your manufacturer’s recommendation. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely throughout your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll notice better air quality and an increase 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.

  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 home. And even though your air conditioner will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, call the professionals at Kelley Mechanical. We can help you out.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your cooling costs, take time to look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.

  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s not hard to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating properly. Yearly tune-ups have the ability to 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 residence, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your air conditioner efficiency and save on energy bills.

 

Half of the energy used in your house goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical. At Kelley Mechanical, we can help ensure your heating and cooling system is operating at its best.
