How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are possibly the most critical asset of a home during warmer months. They offer comfort when the heat in Memphis is at its fieriest and helps keep your environment just as you’d like it. So how can you help your air conditioner run better?

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

At Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, we think it makes sense that you want to save a few bucks on your monthly energy costs, which is why we assembled this list for you to consider:

  • Switch out your home’s air filter. It’s likely 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 isn’t its best.
  • Seal your home’s ducts. According to the folks at ENERGY STAR, typical homes can lose between 20 and 30 percent of the air that passes through them due to duct leaks and other duct complications.
  • Open your vents. It’s a pretty common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms shut and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t necessarily mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system do its job because airflow isn’t being inhibited.
  • Air conditioner service. Pros recommend that you schedule up air conditioner service with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Any time you have air conditioner problems and your comfort is being sacrificed, call in the experts.

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