How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are potentially the most important asset of a home during the summer months. They offer comfort when the heat in Columbia 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 expert air conditioner service that has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we definitely wouldn’t dispute the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a few things you can try yourself.

At Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, we think it makes sense that you want to save money on your monthly heating and cooling costs, which is why we put together this list for you to consider:

  • Swap 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 a very common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms closed off and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t automatically 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. Pros recommend that you schedule up air conditioner service with Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Any time you have air conditioner headaches and your comfort is being sacrificed, call in the experts.

If you’ve checked all of these tips and you’re still running in to a problem with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s more than likely time for air conditioner service.
