How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are arguably the most critical asset of a home during warmer months. They give you comfort when the heat in Rochester is at its worst and helps keep your environment just as you’d 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 take a look at yourself.

At Strogen's Service Experts, we think it makes sense that you want to save money on your monthly heating and cooling costs, which is why we assembled this list for you to consider:

  • Change 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 is compromised.
  • 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 always 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. 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 an issue with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s probably time for air conditioner service. Give Strogen's Service Experts in Rochester a call at 603-923-4570 or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
