Increase the Energy Efficiency of Your Air Conditioning System this Summer
With the warmth and humidity of summer just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your air conditioning system and how you can make it as energy efficient as possible. As we all know, cooling costs can increase your energy bill dramatically. However, there are several ways you can increase your air conditioning’s energy efficiency and reduce costs.
Replacing your air filter. The primary purpose of your air conditioning’s air filter is to filter out debris and dust that’s in your ductwork. If you do not check and change your air filter as its needed, it can become clogged. When the airflow is restricted by a clogged filter, it reduces energy efficiency and even the lifespan of your air conditioner.
Scheduling professional preventative maintenance. It’s important to schedule preventative maintenance with JP Heating & Air Conditioning in Kalamazoo this spring. By having your air conditioning system checked each spring, you’re staying proactive and preventing small issues that can turn into much larger issues as your system runs throughout the summer season. When you schedule yearly preventative maintenance, you reduce the chance of serious problems by 90 percent and can increase energy efficiency by 40 percent.
Replacing your air conditioner. Air conditioning systems have come a long way in energy efficiency over the years. If your air conditioner is over ten years old, you may need to replace it. Besides the increased energy efficiency in new units, those that are that old can also have continuing problems that can’t be permanently fixed – costing you money and time unnecessarily.
