Outdoor AC Unit with Tool Bag on topWhen you need professional air conditioning services in McDonough, you know you can always count on the pros of our staff. However, you can also count on us for some seriously valuable tips, which you already know if you read this blog regularly. Today, we are going to give you some advice on how you can enjoy the best energy efficiency that your air conditioning system has to offer—without the need for replacing your air conditioning system!

Let’s face it. We could all do with a bit more money in our bank accounts. We don’t want to cut back on our comfort due to the costs associated with cooling our homes, but we certainly don’t want to be breaking the bank as we chase that comfort in an inefficient manner. With these tips at your disposal, you won’t have to. And if you’re looking for more, just keep checking back here and remember to give the pros on our team a call.

Seal Your Ductwork

When you use a central air conditioning system, you are using air ducts to distribute air cooled by that system throughout your house. If the ductwork tasked with doing so is leaky, then you are definitely going to encounter problems with heat entering the system, cool air leaking out, and higher energy costs as a result.

There is no way that you can hope to fix these leaky ducts on your own. What you can do, however, is hire us to test your ductwork to make sure that this is actually the problem that you’re dealing with. And, if it is, you can count on us to resolve that problem completely, the right way (not by slapping some quick-to-degrade duct tape over the affected area!).

Make Some Upgrades

Now, we said that we were not going to tell you to upgrade your whole AC system in order to boost energy efficiency. What you can do, though, is upgrade that existing system to do so. How might that work? We’re glad you asked!

First things first, get rid of the old manual thermostat or basic digital model. Outdated thermostats don’t let you take great control over your air conditioning system. Using a programmable model or even a smart thermostat, when compatible, is a much better way to actually live more comfortably and conveniently without driving up energy costs.

Schedule Maintenance

Remember how we also said that you can turn to us for great AC services? Well, letting us provide your air conditioning maintenance is one way in which to maximize cooling efficiency.  Just be sure that you schedule it each and every year!

When your air conditioner is kept in great working condition by having it professionally tuned up on an annual basis, it is going to work at peak efficiency and performance levels, meaning that you get the best cooling experience possible at the lowest price from your system. Do not skip a single tune-up if you’re serious about your comfort and efficiency.
