Air conditioners are arguably the greatest asset of a home during the summer months. They give you comfort when the heat in Kingston is at its fieriest and helps keep your environment just like you like it. So how can you help your air conditioner run better?
The answer is first and foremost professional air conditioner service that includes a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we surely wouldn’t argue the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a couple things you can take a look at yourself.
At Kingston Home Services by Enercare, we think it’s fantastic that you want to save money on your monthly energy costs, which is why we put together this list for you to consider:
- Change your home’s air filter. It’s likely 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 isn’t its best.
- 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 complications.
- Open your vents. It’s a pretty common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms closed off and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t automatically mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system do its job because airflow isn’t being prevented.
- Air conditioner service. Professionals recommend that you set up air conditioner service with Kingston Home Services by Enercare. Any time you have air conditioner issues and your comfort is being compromised, 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 most likely time for air conditioner service.
