3 Simple Tips to Improve Your AC’s Performance

3 Simple Tips to Improve Your AC’s Performance

When homeowners start noticing that their air conditioner is no longer efficient, many will choose to replace or upgrade their HVAC system with a newer one. However, replacing your AC isn’t always the best option, especially if your budget is tight.

Fortunately, there are several things you can do to improve your AC’s performance. Here are the three easiest tips to follow to improve your HVAC performance:

1. Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat

If you have been using a conventional thermostat for over a decade, now is a good time to replace it with a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats are engineered to revolutionize the way you control your AC system and give you the ability to automatically adjust the temperature from virtually anywhere. These devices are also programmed to learn your AC habits and automatically adjust to your ideal settings. There are a number of energy efficient options to help increase your energy savings.

2. Insulate Your Home

Installing or replacing the insulation in your home will help keep your living areas cool and comfortable. When insulation is properly installed, it is more difficult for heat to enter the building through cracks and crevices. Because of this, your AC won’t have to work twice as hard and consume more energy to support your cooling needs.

If you want to make sure your current insulation is in excellent condition, you can get a home energy evaluation. A qualified specialist will inspect your energy usage and the airtightness of the building to see which areas of your property are causing you to lose energy. After the data has been gathered, the specialist will apply the necessary procedures to make your home more energy efficient.

3. Get Preventative AC Maintenance

Even though your AC boasts the latest features, it’s in your best interest to get regular AC maintenance. Having HVAC experts inspect your home's HVAC systems on a consistent basis gives them the opportunity to tune-up the system and install upgrades that could improve the efficiency of your cooling systems. We can even clean the AC to make sure that everything is running smoothly.

When your AC is well-maintained and taken care of, it will use less electricity to keep your indoor areas cool. It also lasts longer since many of its components are up to date.
