How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are arguably the greatest asset of a home during the summer months. They provide comfort when the heat in Hilton Head Island is at its hottest 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 professional air conditioner service that touts a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we surely wouldn’t debate the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a few things you can do yourself.

At Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, 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:

  • Change your home’s air filter. It’s probably 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 a challenge for your air conditioner to do its job – which means your comfort is compromised.
  • Seal your home’s ducts. According to the folks at ENERGY STAR, most 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 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 set up air conditioner service with Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Any time you have air conditioner headaches 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 an issue with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s more than likely time for air conditioner service.
