Air Conditioning Tip 7: How To Efficiently Cool Your Home This Summer

With summer fast approaching, we have energy efficiency on the mind. After all, our electrical energy bill during the summer is normally high, compared to the rest of the year, and we want to make sure that our AC system uses energy efficiently. One question we often hear from customers concerns cooling efficiency. The key to cooling efficiency begins with professional installation and routine maintenance. We’d like to share with you some basic efficiency tips that you may find useful. For more information, or to schedule a Phoenix, AZ air conditioning service, call Goettl Good Guys today!
  • Schedule an air conditioning tune-up. Your Phoenix AC endures a lot of wear and tear. Considering all the use that it gets, it’s no wonder that it may at times need professional service. An air conditioning tune-up is a great way to care for your AC and to make it a more efficient cooling machine. During the tune-up process, a certified expert will inspect the coolant and pressure levels, calibrate the thermostat, clean the evaporator and condenser coils, clear the condensate drain, and check the overall energy efficiency levels. By working with a professional Phoenix air conditioning technician, you’ll know how to best approach your cooling efficiency this summer.
  • Regularly change your air filter. A dirty or clogged air filter restricts cool airflow and causes your AC to work harder. It is therefore vital that you change your air filter at least once a month during the summer. Failure to do so might result in much more than inefficiency; your compressor could overheat, or your evaporator coil could freeze over.
  • Take care of your ducts. If you have a forced-air distribution system, then you know how important the integrity and cleanliness of your ducts are to your home’s energy efficiency. By having them regularly inspected, cleaned, and sealed when necessary, you can insure against unwanted energy loss.

We hope this shortlist helps you cool your home efficiently this summer. And remember: for air conditioning services in Phoenix, call Goettl Good Guys today!
