Arranging regular maintenance for your air conditioning system plays a vital role in preventing minor issues from escalating into major, costly problems. With Accurate Comfort Services, Inc., our expertise extends beyond air conditioning repair to include comprehensive maintenance packages for residential and commercial clients.
Replace HVAC Filters Frequently
Dirty filters hinder the effectiveness of your AC unit. By replacing your filters often, ideally every 30-60 days, you’ll help ensure that your air conditioning units work efficiently and provide healthy indoor air.
Thermostat settings significantly affect your AC’s efficiency and your electricity bills. During summer, try setting your thermostat to 78°F when at home, and raise it when you’re away. During winter, aim for 68°F when at home, and lower it when you’re not. This strategy helps optimize energy use.
Seal Cooling Ducts
Sealing and insulating your cooling ducts can improve the efficiency of your air conditioning to a great extent. According to the Department of Energy, you can improve your AC’s efficiency by 20-30% by sealing and insulating your ducts. Guidance on this topic can always be found at Accurate Comfort Services, Inc.
Remember, it’s not just about repair—it’s about maintenance. Following these tips will go a long way in ensuring the longevity and efficiency of your air conditioning system. For any concerns or professional assistance, never hesitate to reach out to us.
