Improving Your AC’s Efficiency in a Budget-Friendly Way

You probably already know your air conditioning system consumes the largest amount of energy in your home. In fact, it can account for up to 12% of your home’s annual energy costs. Fortunately, there are many simple but effective ways to improve your AC’s efficiency without the need for spending too much. Applied Air Mechanical, the trusted air conditioning and heating installation company in the area, shares some of them here.

Keep the area around the condenser unit clean: Make sure the immediate space around your outdoor condenser unit is clear of weeds, tall grass, shrubs, furniture and debris. This not only prevents blockages in the system–ensuring efficient cooling performance from the AC unit–it also makes the unit more accessible to your HVAC maintenance technicians. As for cleaning the condenser unit itself, you can leave that to the professionals.

Make sure any leaks in the ductwork are sealed: Because of leaks in the duct system, cooling energy may leak behind your walls and ceilings instead of being circulated throughout your home. Should you suspect leaks in the ductwork, consult Applied Air Mechanical immediately. We’re not just your premier AC installation expert–we can also handle your duct sealing needs. With our trained, experienced HVAC technicians, we’ll seal any openings in the duct system so your air conditioner can continue delivering superior cooling performance while keeping energy consumption to a minimum.

Get a smart thermostat: Newer thermostat models allow you to manage your home cooling better. This is possible through automatic temperature settings you can program based on your schedule and specific needs.

Add a zoning system: A zoned HVAC system helps you adjust to the comfort needs of different areas of your home. This means you no longer have to waste considerable energy cooling rooms you don’t actually use often.
