How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are arguably the most critical asset of a home during warmer months. They offer comfort when the heat in Oakville is at its fieriest and helps keep your environment just as you like it. So how can you help your air conditioner run better?

The answer is first and foremost professional air conditioner service that touts a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we definitely wouldn’t dispute the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a couple things you can try yourself.

At Abbey 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 compiled 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 world of difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it tough 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, most homes can lose between 20 and 30 percent of the air that passes through them due to duct leaks and other duct problems.
  • Open your vents. It’s a very common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms shut and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t automatically mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system do its job because airflow isn’t being repressed.
  • Air conditioner service. Experts recommend that you schedule up air conditioner service with Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Any time you have air conditioner headaches and your comfort is being jeopardized, call in the experts.

If you’ve checked all of these tips and you’re still running in to issues with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s probably time for air conditioner service. Give Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in Oakville a call at 289-813-5566 or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
