Air Conditioning: Cooling Your Home Efficiently

Monday, April 8th, 2013

As the temperature begins to rise in Savannah, GA, homeowners are looking for ways to make their air conditioning more efficient. As the ratio between energy input and cooling output, efficiency is a complex measurement that depends upon the condition and quality of your AC unit itself, ductwork, home insulation, and other factors as well. Cooling your home efficiently can therefore require several different aspects of the system working cooperatively. For a range of air conditioning services in Savannah, GA that can help improve efficiency, call AAction Air today!

Let’s take a look at some ways you can make sure that you’re cooling your home efficiently:

  • Clean or replace your air filter. While this is one of the easiest ways to improve the efficiency and performance of your air conditioning, it is often overlooked. Routine inspection of your air filter during peak usage times will probably reveal it to be covered in dust and debris. This eventually begins to hamper airflow, and if it becomes clogged, then it can actually damage your system.
  • Enroll in a maintenance program. It’s never too early or too late to enroll in a program of routine maintenance. There is no substitute for professional care. A biannual or annual visit offers comprehensive inspection and cleaning services. It will help you improve your energy efficiency as well as extend the life of your air conditioning system.
  • Upgrade. If you have to repair your air conditioner frequently, or if it is getting older, you should consider upgrading to a more recent model. Doing so can often make much more financial sense than continuing to repair an obsolete model. By investing in your future cooling comfort with a new central air or ductless mini split, you can ensure that your money is well spent.

These are just a few of the many ways to improve the energy efficiency of your air conditioner for this upcoming spring and summer months. To learn more about air conditioning efficiency in Savannah, GA, call the experts at AAction Air today!
