4 Ways to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

Keeping your Mansfield, Texas, home comfortable is your top priority. Keeping it cool while maintaining proper efficiency is probably a close second on the list. Follow these tips if you’re looking for ways to improve the energy efficiency of your air conditioner:

Clean Around Your Outdoor Unit

Your outdoor unit will work most efficiently when you keep it clean. When yard waste, such as twigs, leaves and dirt, get into the unit, it can clog. As a result, it’ll expend more energy to operate. Pick leaves up, trim tall grass back, and remove any branches sitting on or around the unit.

Keep Your Drain Line Clear

Your system will have a drain located by its cooling coil. A clogged drain line can not only cause poor efficiency. It can also result in water damage. If you notice water around your system, contact a professional to have your line drained. Otherwise, you risk costly property damage.

Properly Seal and Insulate Ductwork

Improperly sealed or insulated ductwork is responsible for a significant amount of energy waste. When the air in your ductwork leaks out, it can cause your air conditioner to work harder to lower the temperature in your home. Have your insulation and ductwork inspected if you detect efficiency problems. Consider having your ductwork sealed if there are cracks and leaks. As a result, you’ll improve your AC system’s efficiency.

Change Your Air Filter

When your air filter becomes clogged with debris, it’ll impede the airflow through your system. As a result, it’ll makes your air conditioner work harder to try to push the air through. Regularly inspect your filter for buildup. Change it once a month or sooner if you detect a lot of dirt.
