Ways to Improve AC Cooling Efficiency

family-footer

Improving your cooling system’s efficiency leads to an array of benefits. For starters, a well-maintained air conditioner results in more even cooling, which is important for improving your indoor comfort. It can also reduce your cooling expenses by making it easier for the AC to cool your Sunnyvale, Texas, home. Two of the best ways to improve cooling efficiency are to change the air filter regularly and invest in regular AC maintenance.

Change the Air Filter

The air filter on the AC traps particles and contaminants, such as dust, dirt, and other airborne allergens. Once the filter is clogged, it can no longer effectively trap these particles. A clogged filter restricts airflow and makes it harder for the AC to cool your home. As a result, the AC has to consume more energy to keep your home at your desired temperature. Changing the filter any time it’s clogged is one of the easiest ways to improve AC efficiency. It will also improve your home’s indoor air quality, which is important to your health.

Increase the Thermostat

Adjusting the thermostat by even a few degrees will improve the AC’s efficiency. Ideally, you should increase the temperature by three to six degrees during the summer. For example, If you normally keep the AC set to 68 degrees, try increasing it to 72 degrees to save both money and energy. You can use a programmable or smart thermostat to make adjusting the temperature a cinch. Make sure to program the thermostat so it keeps your home at a more moderate temperature while you’re away.

Invest in Regular Maintenance

Just as your car needs a tuneup from time to time, so does your cooling system. A certified technician can inspect and clean the condenser coils as well as other components of the AC system. A well-maintained cooling system reduces the amount of energy the AC system consumes, which extends the system’s operational life and reduces repair costs.
