How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are arguably the most critical asset of a home during warmer months. They provide comfort when the heat in Albany is at its hottest and helps keep your environment just like you like it. So how can you help your air conditioner run better?

The answer is first and foremost expert air conditioner service that includes a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we definitely wouldn’t argue the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a number of things you can try yourself.

At Roland J. Down Service Experts , we think it makes sense that you want to save money on your monthly energy expenses, which is why we compiled 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 tough for your air conditioner to do its job – which means your comfort is compromised.
  • Seal your home’s ducts. According to the folks at ENERGY STAR, many homes can lose between 20 and 30 percent of the air that passes through them as a result of duct leaks and other duct complications.
  • Open your vents. It’s an awfully common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms closed and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t necessarily mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system accomplish its job because airflow isn’t being prevented.
  • Air conditioner service. Experts recommend that you set up air conditioner service with Roland J. Down Service Experts . Any time you have air conditioner issues and your comfort is being jeopardized, call in the experts.
