While the summer season may be winding down, temperatures throughout the
Atlanta area remain high. When outdoor temperatures soar, your
residential A/C system will ensure that you and your family members are cool and comfortable
at home. To avoid a very high cooling bill at the end of the month, you
can take measures to help your air conditioning system run as efficiently
as possible. Here are some energy saving tips for residential A/C units.
Replace the Air Filters
If you only perform one service for your air conditioner on a monthly
basis, you will want to make sure to replace the air filters. Much like
the air filter in a car’s engine, the filter in your air conditioner
removes nasty particles from your system. When your air conditioner runs
continuously throughout the summer, your air filter can clog and reduce
the overall efficiency of your system.
Clean the Condenser Coils
To improve the efficiency of your air conditioner, you may also want to
clean out its exterior condenser. Falling leaves, grass clippings, and
other forms of debris can cause nasty clogs in your condenser coils. When
you are having trouble improving your air conditioner’s efficiency,
you can give it a performance boost by cleaning its condenser coils.
Schedule Professional Repair
When you find that your air conditioner is having serious efficiency and
performance troubles, you may be in need of professional air conditioning
repair. Your HVAC technician will be able to use sophisticated diagnostic
tools to get to the bottom of your efficiency issue. Routine air conditioner
repairs will also help keep your A/C performing at a high level of efficiency
between your service appointments.
