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 Elkhart 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 premier air conditioner service that has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we certainly wouldn’t argue the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a number of things you can take a look at yourself.

At BW/Cook Service Experts, we think it’s great that you want to save a few bucks on your monthly heating and cooling costs, which is why we assembled this list for you to consider:

  • Switch out your home’s air filter. It’s probably the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a huge 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 due to duct leaks and other duct issues.
  • Open your vents. It’s a pretty common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms shut and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t automatically mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system do its job because airflow isn’t being prevented.
  • Air conditioner service. Professionals recommend that you schedule up air conditioner service with BW/Cook Service Experts. Any time you have air conditioner issues 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 a problem with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s most likely time for air conditioner service. Give BW/Cook Service Experts in Elkhart a call at 574-218-6404 or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
