How to Ensure the Best Air Conditioning Efficiency

It is the end of summer, which means it is one of the hottest times of the year. You are likely running your air conditioner at full capacity day and night to try and stave off the heat. Many people dread looking at their energy bill because of the scary amount of power that it can take to run your HVAC system. However, there are some simple steps you can take to maximize your air conditioning efficiency and get the most out of your cooling system. Duggan's One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® has just the tips you need this summer.

Regular Maintenance

The key to having an efficient cooling unit is to keep it well maintained. You wouldn’t ignore your car’s maintenance and then expect it to run efficiently after a few years, why do the same with your AC? Call your trusted air conditioning repair company for annual maintenance at the start of summer to ensure your system is running optimally. As an added bonus, regular maintenance can help you catch small problems before they turn into costly repairs.

Replace Your Filter

People don’t realize how often you need to be changing your air filter during the summer. If you are constantly using your air conditioning system, you should be changing the filter every 2-3 months. Once your air filter begins fill, the efficiency of your AC system starts to go down. You may be paying more for your cool air than you need to! Ask Duggan’s about what filter would work best in your system.

Smart Thermostats

The newest piece of cooling technology has come from thermostat control. You can control your home’s temperature right from your smartphone. You can also set your cooling system to adjust the temperature while you are out of the house, saving you money each month. If you would like more tips about making your air conditioning system more efficient, contact Duggan's One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning®.
