Air Conditioning Efficiency & Comfort Checklist

Book Online Now!

Now that summer is here, you need to keep your air conditioning efficiency in mind. You’ve probably heard an HVAC professional tell you this before, but the critical component you’re missing is the “how.” Improving your air conditioning efficiency isn’t as simple as snapping your fingers together and making it a reality. It takes effort, and we have the right tips to make it easy. Air conditioners and air conditioning systems are key components in achieving air conditioning efficiency, which is crucial in how effectively your home is cooled or heated.

We’re the team you can call for everything if you need air conditioning services. Emphasizing energy efficiency is vital in improving air conditioning performance, ensuring your system uses less energy while providing optimal comfort. We’re even here for the bigger jobs like AC system installation in Castle Rock, CO. Today, though, we’re going to start you off with some great tips.

Helpful Tips for Your Central Air Conditioning System

Here are a few tips you can try this summer. They’re sure to boost your efficiency and keep you more relaxed.

Replacing the Air Filter

Replacing your HVAC system’s air filter at least once a season is essential. This means once every few months or once every season if this aligns with your home’s rhythm.

Replacing your HVAC system’s filter is so vital because it sets a clear pathway for your HVAC system to perform. Think about it like this: if you were running at a track meet, would you run on a clear, evenly paved pathway or one littered with rocks, debris, and potholes instead? We’d bet that you’d choose the even path. We would, too, and your air conditioner plays by the same rules. Replacing an air filter sets a clear pathway.

Turn Off Lights and Close Curtains During the Day

When it’s noon, the sun is high in the sky, and your home is hot, turn off your lights and close up your curtains and blinds. This is the easiest way to reduce the strain that might be put on your air conditioning system, helping to maintain the cool air produced more efficiently. Leaving lights on and blinds open creates unwanted warmth.

Unblock all Vents

It’s easy to block your vents on accident throughout the year. That poster seemed fine to cover a corner of your vent during the spring when you weren’t using your AC system that often. Now though? It might be the one thing that blocks airflow to your bedroom. Unblock your vents and give your AC system a fighting chance.

Schedule Professional Air Conditioning Maintenance

Maintenance is the best tip you can abide by when it comes to cooling. Schedule an appointment each spring to keep your air conditioner in top shape. Professional maintenance ensures that air conditioning units, especially energy-efficient air conditioner models, maintain their efficiency over time. We have a maintenance plan if you want to save on this service. Learn more about our USA Club Membership here.

Consider Upgrading to an Energy Efficient Air Conditioner

If you’ve had your air conditioning system for a while, you should consider upgrading it to a central air conditioner or enhancing your home with a new central air conditioning system. “A while” here is anything at or nearing a decade. You need to expedite your replacement process if you’ve had many repair needs in recent history or efficiency issues. Opting for an energy-efficient model can significantly reduce your annual operating costs and is a key consideration when choosing or upgrading to a new central air conditioning system. These systems, whether split-system or packaged units are designed for long-term energy savings and improved comfort.

An older air conditioner might work, but it won’t work as well as a modern, energy-efficient model. Don’t sacrifice your efficiency for lackluster comfort.
