How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are possibly the most critical asset of a home during warmer months. They give you comfort when the heat in Rochester 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 touts a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we surely wouldn’t debate the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a few things you can try yourself.

At Strogen's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, we think it makes sense that you want to save money on your monthly energy costs, which is why we compiled this list for you to consider:

  • Swap your home’s air filter. It’s possibly the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a huge difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it a challenge 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 as a result of 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 perform its job because airflow isn’t being repressed.
  • Air conditioner service. Professionals recommend that you set up air conditioner service with Strogen's 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 most likely time for air conditioner service.
