There are many homeowners who neglect to schedule an annual checkup of their air conditioning system every year, which can lead to poor efficiency and a shorter operational life span of the system.
If you are close to the 12-month mark or have already passed it, be sure to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
Many people seem to forget that the air filter is one of the most important components that will keep their air conditioning equipment running smoothly and efficiently all year round. The filter will clog up over time as it collects dust and debris, which will negatively affect the performance of the system as it gets clogged. This filter should be checked once per month and changed or cleaned as needed. Manual thermostats are a thing of the past, so if your home still has one, switch it out with a programmable model. As a result, you will be able to better manage your cooling needs, reducing energy consumption and improving your system’s efficiency. Unless you have enough insulation in each area of your home that requires it, cool air will escape and your air conditioner will run longer. A qualified HVAC technician can definitely assist you if you need assistance installing insulation. It may seem like a simple task, but many people neglect to reverse their ceiling fans’ direction once the weather begins to warm up. Make sure that the fan is spinning counterclockwise to lower cooling costs and push the air downwards.
