How to Help Your Air Conditioner Run More Efficiently

July 10, 2015

Air conditioners are arguably the greatest asset of a home during warmer months. They give you comfort when the heat in Kitchener 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 professional air conditioner service that touts a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. And while we certainly wouldn’t dispute the value of professional quality air conditioner service, there are a couple things you can take a look at yourself.

At Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts, we think it’s great that you want to save some 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 world of 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, most 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 an awfully common mistake among homeowners, but keeping rooms closed 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 prevented.
  • Air conditioner service. Experts recommend that you arrange up air conditioner service with Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts. Any time you have air conditioner headaches 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 an issue with your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s most likely time for air conditioner service. Give Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts in Kitchener a call at or set up an appointment online to get it taken care of.
