How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are arguably the most important asset of a home during warmer months. They provide comfort when the heat in Grand Island 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 expert air conditioner service that touts a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we certainly wouldn’t dispute the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a couple things you can try yourself.

At McElroy Service Experts, we think it makes sense that you want to save some on your monthly heating and cooling costs, which is why we put together this list for you to consider:

  • Switch out your home’s air filter. It’s likely the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a big 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 problems.
  • 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 necessarily mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system perform its job because airflow isn’t being prevented.
  • Air conditioner service. Professionals recommend that you arrange up air conditioner service with McElroy Service Experts. Any time you have air conditioner headaches and your comfort is being sacrificed, 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. Give McElroy Service Experts in Grand Island a call at 308-210-4398 or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
