How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are potentially the greatest asset of a home during hot months. They give you comfort when the heat in Albany is at its hottest 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 expert air conditioner service that has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we definitely wouldn’t debate the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a couple things you can try yourself.

At D.A. Bennett Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, we think it’s fantastic that you want to save money on your monthly energy expenses, which is why we put together this list for you to consider:

  • Switch out your home’s air filter. It’s probably the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a big difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it difficult 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, many homes can lose between 20 and 30 percent of the air that passes through them due to duct leaks and other duct issues.
  • Open your vents. It’s a very common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms closed and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t always mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system do its job because airflow isn’t being prevented.
  • Air conditioner service. Experts recommend that you arrange up air conditioner service with D.A. Bennett Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Any time you have air conditioner issues 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 a problem with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s more than likely time for air conditioner service. Give D.A. Bennett Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in Albany a call at 518-205-3324 or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
