How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are arguably the greatest asset of a home during hot months. They give you comfort when the heat in Edmonton is at its fieriest 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 premier air conditioner service that touts a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we definitely wouldn’t argue the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a couple things you can take a look at yourself.

At Rob's Albertan Service Experts, we think it makes sense that you want to save a few bucks on your monthly heating and cooling costs, which is why we compiled 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 huge difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it difficult 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, many homes can lose between 20 and 30 percent of the air that passes through them due to duct leaks and other duct problems.
  • Open your vents. It’s a pretty common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms shut and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t always mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system do its job because airflow isn’t being repressed.
  • Air conditioner service. Professionals recommend that you arrange up air conditioner service with Rob's Albertan Service Experts. Any time you have air conditioner problems 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 more than likely time for air conditioner service.
