Now that spring has arrived, we’ll start experiencing more and more warm days in Odessa. It’s an ideal time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some basic ideas for you to thoroughly 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 many times, but replacing your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to replace your filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s suggestion. If you check your filter each month, you’ll begin to figure out how frequently you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your home when you have a clean filter. You’ll see improved air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup 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 have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be more difficult for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your space. And even though your air conditioner will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning. We can help you out.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your cooling costs, check into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t around? You can find an variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that will fit your lifestyle needs.

  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy 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 extend its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you desire individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
