How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are possibly the greatest asset of a home during hot months. They give you comfort when the heat in Shreveport is at its hottest 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 debate the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a few things you can try yourself.

At Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, we think it makes sense that you want to save a few bucks on your monthly heating and cooling costs, which is why we assembled 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 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, typical homes can lose between 20 and 30 percent of the air that passes through them due to duct leaks and other duct complications.
  • Open your vents. It’s an awfully common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms closed off and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t necessarily mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system accomplish its job because airflow isn’t being inhibited.
  • Air conditioner service. Experts recommend that you arrange up air conditioner service with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Any time you have air conditioner problems 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 an issue with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s probably time for air conditioner service. Give Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in Shreveport a call at or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
