Improving Your Air Conditioning Performance

Monday, May 20th, 2013

If you live in the Savannah area, you know how important our air conditioners are to our general comfort during the heat and humidity of the summer months. Whether you have a ductless mini split, central air, heat pump, or a geothermal system, you rely on its cooling performance to provide respite from the outdoors. But more than just performance, you also rely on it to be energy efficient. Considering the amount of electrical energy we consume to keep our homes cool, you are probably looking around for ways to save money on your energy bill. Fortunately, energy efficiency and performance often go hand-in-hand. We’d like to share some ways you can improve your Savannah air conditioning performance. Call AAction Air today for comprehensive AC services!

  • Routinely change your air filter: Your air filter is designed to prevent the harmful accumulation of dust and other debris on the mechanical components of your air conditioning system. But it needs to be changed regularly to ensure that it operates properly. Moreover, if it becomes clogged with debris, it can actually begin to impede airflow and that can cause serious problems for your energy efficiency and for the AC equipment itself. Your evaporator coil can freeze and your compressor can overheat.
  • Enroll in a maintenance program: When you sign up for regular professional service, you know that your AC is being taken care of by trained and certified technicians. A comprehensive inspection, cleaning, and tune-up will involve cleaning the coils, monitoring and adjusting the refrigerant level, and checking all of the electrical connections.
  • Install a zone control system: If you currently have a central air system, then you may be frustrated at some aspects of its performance. For example, cooling the downstairs kitchen just to stay cool upstairs in the bedroom while you sleep can often be annoying and not nearly as cost-effective as you would like. A zone control system uses electronic dampers inserted at strategic points within the ductwork of your home to divide the home into cooling zones, each of which can be separately controlled.

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!
