How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are arguably the most critical asset of a home during warmer months. They give you comfort when the heat in Tempe is at its worst and helps keep your environment just as you’d 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 certainly wouldn’t debate the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a number of things you can take a look at 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 compiled this list for you to consider:

  • Swap your home’s air filter. It’s likely the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a world of difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it tough 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 necessarily 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 most likely time for air conditioner service. Give Bob Brown Service Experts in Tempe a call at 623-243-4517 or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
