176842108Do you know how your air conditioner works and how to keep it running efficiently? Even if you aren’t technically-inclined, knowing a few facts about how your air conditioner works—and how to get the most from it—can save you money and improve your comfort at home. If you have questions or are experiencing problems with your air conditioner, contact a Tucson air conditioning service for professional assistance.

Use the Right Filter
Changing your air filter regularly will keep your home cleaner and prevent your air conditioning from becoming overtaxed. However, not all air filters are the same. Filters with a MERV rating of 4 must be changed every month, while a filter with a MERV rating of 8 can be left in place for up to three months. If you or your family members have allergies or asthma, a filter with a higher MERV rating can help to improve indoor air quality and comfort.

Use a Programmable Thermostat
Running your air conditioner while no one is home isn’t an efficient use of power. Installing a programmable thermostat can allow you to create programs based on your schedule to turn your air conditioning up or down based on when you are home. A programmable thermostat can help you save money and reduce your home’s overall energy consumption without the need for you to adjust the temperature manually multiple times each day.

Use an Air Conditioning Service
Your air conditioner should be serviced by a professional once a year. A yearly tune-up will improve the efficiency of your air conditioner, reducing the costs of cooling your home. Your air conditioning service will also replace any worn or failing parts before they can become a problem and affect your indoor comfort and cause more expensive emergency repairs.
