How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are possibly the greatest asset of a home during hot months. They provide comfort when the heat in La Porte is at its worst and helps keep your environment just like you like it. So how can you help your air conditioner run better?

The answer is first and foremost professional air conditioner service that includes a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we definitely wouldn’t dispute the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a few things you can try yourself.

At Finch Air Conditioning & Heating Inc, we think it makes sense that you want to save money on your monthly energy costs, which is why we put together this list for you to consider:

  • Switch out your home’s air filter. It’s possibly the most referenced homeowner task from heating and cooling companies, but it really does make a huge difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it tough for your air conditioner to do its job – which means your comfort is compromised.
  • Seal your home’s ducts. According to the folks at ENERGY STAR, many homes can lose between 20 and 30 percent of the air that passes through them as a result of duct leaks and other duct problems.
  • Open your vents. It’s a pretty common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms closed and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t necessarily mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system accomplish its job because airflow isn’t being prevented.
  • Air conditioner service. Professionals recommend that you arrange up air conditioner service with Finch Air Conditioning & Heating Inc. Any time you have air conditioner headaches and your comfort is being compromised, call in the experts.

If you’ve checked all of these tips and you’re still running in to a problem with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s more than likely time for air conditioner service. Give Finch Air Conditioning & Heating Inc in La Porte a call at or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
