How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are arguably the most important asset of a home during hot months. They give you comfort when the heat in Shreveport is at its worst 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 includes a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we certainly wouldn’t debate the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a couple things you can take a look at yourself.

At Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, we think it makes sense that you want to save a few bucks on your monthly energy costs, which is why we assembled this list for you to consider:

  • Change your home’s air filter. It’s likely 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 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, most 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 prevented.
  • Air conditioner service. Pros recommend that you arrange up air conditioner service with 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 most likely time for air conditioner service.
