If you aren’t taking steps to enable your air conditioner to operate at its full potential you are missing out on a lot of comfort. Improving its performance will also save you money as your air conditioner will require fewer repairs and will consume less electricity. Luckily there is no necessity to embark on a long journey to get your air conditioner to function at its highest potential. It can be achieved with very little effort on your part. We have shared how to go about this below…
1. Give your air conditioner a full tune up:
This full tune up should include cleaning the outside and inside, lubricating parts like the fan, replacing the filter and checking for problems. If you take these steps you should instantly see a boost in the performance of your unit.
If you don’t know much about the anatomy of an air conditioner, you should hire an experienced air conditioner repairman to do it for you. You can do the simple things like cleaning the outside and replacing the filter as this needs to be done every 4 weeks. The other tasks can be done once or twice a year. Hence it would be inexpensive to get a repairman to do it for you.
2. Hire a new air conditioner repairman:
If you have an air conditioner repairman and you are regularly getting your air conditioner serviced, but are still unable to achieve maximum potential, then your repairman may be doing something wrong. It may be time for you to find a new repairman. You need to find someone who will get you results. Give East Texas Refrigeration a try. We offer both maintenance and repair services. The best package for you would be the Energy Savings Agreement.
3. Pay close attention to the thermostat:
Adjust thermostat temperatures when you are at home and when you are away. When you are at home lower the temperature to something that keeps you comfortable. But when you are away increase it so that the air conditioner doesn’t have to work too hard. This will save you money and increase efficiency as your air conditioner won’t need to work all the time. If you think this requires a lot of effort, get a programmable smart thermostat that will automatically adjust the temperature.
This is how you get your air conditioner to function at maximum potential.
