Whether you have just had a recent AC install, or you have an existing system that has been serving you well for a while now, the one thing you will want to do is use your central air conditioner as efficiently as possible. Take a moment to learn what the Air Pros team recommends when it comes to achieving this goal.
Regularly Change Your Filter
One of the simplest ways to use your central air conditioning unit more efficiently is to change the filter regularly. The standard recommendation is to change it every 2-3 months or so. Do this more often during times of the year when you’re using your air conditioning unit frequently in your home.
Maintain a Consistent Thermostat Setting
Many people get into the habit of turning their thermostat up when leaving for the day and turning it back down when they get back home so the cooling unit will kick in sooner. However, this constant adjustment makes your unit work harder to maintain a consistent temperature. Instead, settle on a preferred temperature and let the settings be.
Consider Upgrading to a Programmable Thermostat
While on the topic of temperature, if you do not yet have a programmable thermostat for your central air conditioning unit, consider upgrading to one for your next AC install. These can help your cooling system be more efficient by allowing for more precise temperature control. Some models will even learn your comfort preferences over time.
Make Wise Use of Blinds during the Day
Your central air conditioning will be efficient if you close your curtains and blinds during times of the day when the sun is fully coming in, especially on hot, humid days. What this does is preserve cool air in your home and prevent the sun from bringing more heat into your home. Efficiency is improved since your system will not have to compensate for cold air loss and extra heat in sun-filled rooms.
Use Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans move air and circulate it. Using ceiling fans in your home helps your central air conditioning work more efficiently by circulating cooled air and distributing it more evenly. Just make sure to set the blades to rotate counterclockwise when your cooling system is being used to get air flowing in the right direction.
Schedule Routine Maintenance Checks
You cannot always predict when AC repair will be necessary. But what you can do is schedule routine maintenance checks and inspections. The Air Pros technicians serving the Orlando area will gladly look at all key components of your central air conditioning system to check for anything that could affect efficiency, such as refrigerant leaks, wiring problems, and parts that need to be replaced if there are signs of wear.
