Air conditioners are not just a commodity in the Las Vegas Desert, they are a necessity. But along with using the cooling system to keep you comfortable, comes higher energy bills. There are a few things you can do to help ensure your system operates at its best if you want to change this. You will be able to improve the overall function and ensure your home remains comfortable by improving efficiency. When it comes to keeping the air conditioning at its peak performance, there are some maintenance and care involved that keeps it operated and with minimal costs. Today, we at Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to share tips to keep the air conditioning system efficient.
Maintain Air Vents
Throughout your home, inspect the vents, they are usually at least one in every room. The air is allowed to circulate into the home easily with these vents. It can cause problems with airflow when these vents become clogged with dirt and debris. To remove all of the debris and dust collected on them, use a simple duster regularly. This is also going to provide better comfort to your home.
Clear Area Around Outdoor Condenser Unit
Right outside of the home is where most air conditioners that have a large condenser sits. It can often attract leaves and twigs because it is a large system that pulls in hot air. Additionally, wildlife and pests can get too close with their foraging activities. Keeping this unit clear and free from clutter as well as debris is critical. It is also best to turn to an AC technician who can provide an inspection and ensure it is working at its best if you are not comfortable keeping it clean.
Clean or Change Air Filter
Ensuring your home’s filters remain clean is one of the most important steps to take during the summer months. As it flows through the air conditioner, the air filter helps pull debris and other particles from the air, and that can result in it quickly backing up. The air conditioner has to work much harder to push cooled air through your home when that happens. More energy is needed, and the unit becomes less efficient. You ensure that’s not going to happen by replacing your air conditioning filters at least one time every month.
Other Tips to Make AC Run More Efficiently
To see significant improvement, there are a few other things you can do, and they are listed below.
1) When no one is home, use a smart thermostat that can help you program your air conditioning to reduce high use.
2) Ensure there is no buildup of ice on the compressor, and this indicates you need repairs.
3) Observe and monitor they way it sounds for any changes. It is time to get repairs if you hear those changes, such as a banging.
4) Make sure you keep all windows and doors closed. To ensure air is not getting out, be sure to check the seals on the doors and windows.
5) Since it can help to reduce the amount of cooled air lost through the attic itself, be sure to insulate your attic. Make sure it’s properly vented to allow hot air out at the same time.
