Summer weather in North Texas is hot and humid, and the cost of running a central air conditioner can account for as much as 60 or more percent of your total monthly electric bill. That’s why it’s important to do everything possible to ensure your AC equipment is operating at peak efficiency.
How to Maximize the Efficiency of Your AC System
Your air conditioner is exposed to harsh conditions, and over time, it can begin to lose capacity. Dirt builds up on critical internal components, which degrades the heat exchange process. Fortunately, there are several simple ways to restore lost efficiency and bring down those high summer cooling bills.
- Change the AC Filter: The central filter in your AC system plays an important role in creating a comfortable and safe indoor environment. Filters clogged with dirt and debris restrict air flow and increase resistance. This forces your unit to work longer and harder, which wastes electricity. For maximum efficiency, disposable filters should be changed every month, and high efficiency filters should be changed or cleaned at least quarterly.
- AC System Maintenance: Preventive maintenance is essential to keep your air conditioner operating at maximum efficiency. Every spring, NATE-certified technicians visit your home or office to perform a variety of critical services to restore lost performance and correct minor problems before the summer heat arrives. Webb’s Electric, Heating and Air Conditioning provides flexible maintenance agreements designed to comfortably fit every budget.
- Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat: Modern smart thermostats use high-tech artificial intelligence to learn about your family’s daily living habits. The thermostat then develops custom programs to optimize efficiency without sacrificing comfort. Displays are large and easy to read, and thermostat functions can be controlled remotely.
