Heating and cooling expenses constitute a large percentage of total utility charges. An inefficient air conditioner can significantly increase utility bills in your Stanford, KY, home. Fortunately, you can use the following tricks to enhance your AC system’s efficiency and extend its life.
Unblock and Clean the Vents
An effective way of increasing your AC’s efficiency is by keeping vents free of debris. Remove debris from the indoor air supply vents to help maintain a steady airflow through the system and improve its efficiency. Always ensure that each vent is clear to avoid blockages that can cause poor airflow and affect AC efficiency.
Schedule Regular AC Maintenance
It’s often tempting to put off regular HVAC maintenance, especially if the system is functioning well or if you’re extra busy. However, regular maintenance has a positive effect on the efficiency of your system. During routine HVAC maintenance, the technician inspects the system for any faults that make it inefficient.
Install a Programmable Thermostat
Investing in a programmable thermostat is a great way to increase your AC’s efficiency. You can significantly reduce monthly heating and cooling bills with a slight temperature reduction. A programmable thermostat can monitor your needs, so it automatically adjusts when necessary and improves the AC’s efficiency effortlessly.
