How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are arguably the most important asset of a home during the summer months. They provide comfort when the heat in Gaithersburg is at its hottest 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 professional air conditioner service that has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we certainly wouldn’t dispute the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a number of things you can try yourself.

At Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, we think it’s great that you want to save some on your monthly energy costs, which is why we put together 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 big difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it tough 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, most 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 and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t automatically mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system do its job because airflow isn’t being inhibited.
  • Air conditioner service. Professionals recommend that you schedule up air conditioner service with Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. 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 a problem with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s most likely time for air conditioner service.
