April 05, 2016

Now that spring is here, we’ll start experiencing an increase in warm days in Bishop. It’s the perfect time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some basic ideas for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and add years to its lifespan.

 

  1. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
    1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change the filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you check your filter every single month, you’ll begin to see how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience improved air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder. More work could lead to a reduced lifespan for your system.

  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts show any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be tough for your system to efficiently push air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would prefer. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning. We can help.

  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your cooling costs, take time to look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t around? You can find an selection of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.

  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your air conditioner is operating as it should. Yearly tune-ups can keep your air conditioner as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.

  5. Zoned Heating
    If you desire individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your residence, a zoned heating and cooling system can accomplish that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your air conditioner efficiency and save you money.
