Now that spring is here, we’ll start seeing more and more warm days in Crystal and Twin Cities. It’s an ideal time to examine your air conditioner’s efficiency. We have some simple ideas for you to thoroughly take advantage of the benefits of your air conditioner’s efficiency and extend its lifespan.
- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is extremely important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you monitor your filter month after month, you’ll begin to determine how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your space when you have a clean filter. You’ll see better air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder. More work could lead to a decreased lifespan for your system.

If your ducts contain any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your space. And even though your air conditioner will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, talk to the professionals at GV Heating & Air. We can assist you.
