How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are potentially the most important asset of a home during the summer months. They offer comfort when the heat in Windsor is at its hottest and helps keep your environment just as you like it. So how can you help your air conditioner run better?

The answer is first and foremost professional air conditioner service that includes a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we surely wouldn’t debate the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a couple things you can do yourself.

At Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts, we think it’s fantastic that you want to save a few bucks on your monthly energy costs, which is why we assembled this list for you to consider:

  • Switch out your home’s air filter. It’s probably the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a huge difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it a challenge for your air conditioner to do its job – which means your comfort suffers.
  • Seal your home’s ducts. According to the folks at ENERGY STAR, most homes can lose between 20 and 30 percent of the air that passes through them due to duct leaks and other duct complications.
  • Open your vents. It’s a very 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 arrange up air conditioner service with Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts. Any time you have air conditioner problems 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 an issue with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s more than likely time for air conditioner service.
