How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are arguably the most critical asset of a home during the summer months. They give you comfort when the heat in Phoenix is at its worst 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 definitely wouldn’t argue the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a number of things you can try yourself.

At Bob Brown Service Experts, we think it makes sense that you want to save some on your monthly energy expenses, which is why we assembled 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 big difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it difficult 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, many homes can lose between 20 and 30 percent of the air that passes through them as a result of duct leaks and other duct issues.
  • Open your vents. It’s an awfully 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 accomplish its job because airflow isn’t being prevented.
  • Air conditioner service. Professionals recommend that you schedule up air conditioner service with Bob Brown Service Experts. Any time you have air conditioner issues 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 an issue with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s probably time for air conditioner service. Give Bob Brown Service Experts in Phoenix a call at or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
