Have you noticed lately that your home isn’t as comfortably cool as it once was? In our area air conditioning equipment can reasonably be expected to have an average life span of about 15 years. There are simple steps you can take to extend your equipment’s useful life beyond average.

Keep it Clean

Air conditioning is a marvelous system to remove heat from the inside of your home and dissipate it to the outside. The movement of large volumes of air within the system inevitably leads to the accumulation of dust on critical parts, thereby reducing the efficiency of the heat exchange. Of course, the exterior unit is exposed to the elements and is a subject to wind-blown dust and debris which can reduce the dissipation of heat.

Changing your filters regularly and often, combined with regular maintenance will keep your system running as efficiently as possible and prevent premature equipment failure. Some of the maintenance can be easily performed by the homeowner, but some of it is best done by a professional. In fact, most HVAC warranties stipulate that a professional contractor perform maintenance at least once a year to keep the warranty in force.

Even if your system is nearing the end of its useful life, a good cleaning may be all that is needed to return your home to acceptable comfort levels for another cooling season or two. We ran across an item on “The Frugal Life” website which offers up some practical advice for those who are beginning to think about whether they should invest in a new system.

1. Keep Your Filter Clean

A dirty filter reduces air flow. Examine your air filters once a month. Replace filters when necessary. Keeping your filters clean can cut the energy used 5 to 15%.

2. Close the Curtains

Natural light is great but the sun’s heat can raise the temperature in your home. Make sure blinds and drapes are closed to help reduce the heat from the rays of the sun.

3. Program the Thermostat

Increase temperature settings when you are not in the home or at night while sleeping so that cooling is not wasted. You can save up to nine percent for every degree you raise the thermostat during hot months. You make the adjustments manually, but the new programmable thermostats are very convenient and will generally save you money in the long run. The thermostat doesn’t “forget” or run out of time to make adjustments.
