How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are possibly the most important asset of a home during the summer months. They offer comfort when the heat in West Chester is at its fieriest 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 professional air conditioner service that has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we certainly wouldn’t debate the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a couple things you can try yourself.

At Wesley Wood Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, we think it’s fantastic that you want to save a few bucks 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 likely the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a world of difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it difficult 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, typical 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 an awfully common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms shut and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t necessarily mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system perform its job because airflow isn’t being prevented.
  • Air conditioner service. Professionals recommend that you schedule up air conditioner service with Wesley Wood Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Any time you have air conditioner issues and your comfort is being compromised, 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 most likely time for air conditioner service.
