How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are potentially the most important asset of a home during the summer months. They provide comfort when the heat in Savannah is at its hottest 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 premier 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 do yourself.

At Coastal Service Experts, we think it’s great that you want to save money on your monthly energy expenses, which is why we put together 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 big difference. Dirty air filters block air flow and make it difficult for your air conditioner to do its job – which means your comfort suffers.
  • 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 due to duct leaks and other duct issues.
  • Open your vents. It’s a very common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms shut and vents shut in seldom used rooms doesn’t automatically mean you save money. Keeping all of your vents open helps the system accomplish its job because airflow isn’t being repressed.
  • Air conditioner service. Professionals recommend that you schedule up air conditioner service with Coastal Service Experts. Any time you have air conditioner issues and your comfort is being jeopardized, 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 more than likely time for air conditioner service. Give Coastal Service Experts in Savannah a call at or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
