Maintenance Tips to Improve Air Conditioner Efficiency
Don’t suffer through Louisiana’s unpredictable weather. Gordon AC is here to help! We’ve got some tricks up our sleeve to help you better maintain your AC unit and improve the efficiency of the cooling system at your home or business.
1. Clean around outdoor condenser units.
Your outdoor unit will work most efficiently if it is clean and clear of debris. Keep limbs, leaves, and other debris away from your unit to ensure direct and consistent airflow. For a more thorough, in-depth cleaning, call Gordon AC and we’d be happy to come out and assist.
2. Keep indoor vents unblocked. Dust and debris can easily clog your indoor vents, preventing steady airflow from your system. Make sure your indoor vents are clean and free from dust, and never place furniture on top or in front of your vents.
3. Keep curtains and blinds closed during the day . When direct sun shines through your windows, it may cause the temperature in your home to rise. Keeping your curtains and blinds closed during the day can help your AC system keep your house cool and cost efficient.
4. Increase your thermostat while you aren’t home. Typically, adjusting your indoor temperature by 5-8 degrees can help save money and energy. During the winter months, turn your thermostat down while you are away from home, and turn it up during the summer.
