Summer Tips for Efficient AC Performance

With summer in full swing, your air conditioning unit will be working overtime to keep your home cool and comfortable. At Allied Heating & Air Colorado, we understand the importance of maintaining your HVAC system for optimal performance and energy efficiency. Here are some helpful tips to ensure your AC operates smoothly during the hottest months of the year:

Change Air Filters Regularly

Clogged air filters can restrict airflow and cause your system to work harder, leading to higher energy bills and potential breakdowns. Aim to replace or clean your filters every 1-3 months, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations and the presence of pets or allergies in your household.

Clear Outdoor Unit

The outdoor condensing unit must have proper airflow to function correctly. Remove any debris, such as leaves, grass clippings, or shrubbery, from around the unit to prevent air conditioner repair issues.

Seal Air Leaks

Cracks and gaps around windows, doors, and other openings can let cool air escape and warm air enter, making your AC work harder. Use caulk or weatherstripping to seal these leaks and improve energy efficiency.

Schedule Regular Maintenance

Annual maintenance by a professional HVAC technician can help identify and address potential problems before they become costly repairs. During a tune-up, the technician will clean and inspect various components, ensuring your system runs smoothly and efficiently.

Consider Upgrading to a High-Efficiency Unit

If your AC unit is more than 10 years old, it may be time to consider replacing it with a newer, more energy-efficient model. Today’s systems can significantly reduce your energy costs while providing better cooling performance.
