How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are potentially the most important asset of a home during warmer months. They provide comfort when the heat in Edmonton is at its fieriest and helps keep your environment just as 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 definitely wouldn’t debate the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a couple things you can try yourself.

At McKinley Heating Service Experts, we think it’s great that you want to save money on your monthly heating and cooling costs, which is why we compiled this list for you to consider:

  • Swap your home’s air filter. It’s likely 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 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 because of duct leaks and other duct complications.
  • Open your vents. It’s an awfully common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms shut and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t always 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. Professionals recommend that you set up air conditioner service with McKinley Heating Service Experts. Any time you have air conditioner problems 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.
